Officially opened on 30 October 2017 by His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia, the Nautilus Centre provides students at Concordia College with a magnificent new learning facility for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM).

The building features flexible learning areas, collaborative breakout spaces, and innovative outdoor learning areas, including a covered courtyard and a rooftop terrace. Designed to invite curiosity and inquiry, the Nautilus Centre is unique and purposeful in its combination of leading-edge educational spaces and architectural features that encourage students to appreciate the world around them. It is a technology-rich facility equipped with large screens and writable surfaces, providing an immersive STEAM-based learning environment. Built on the footprint of the previous science centre, opened in 1967, this magnificent facility marks a new era in Science and Art education at Concordia. 

Watch the video below to hear some of our students' first impressions of the Centre. 

Since it opened, the Centre has received several awards including an IESANZ SA/NT Lighting Award of Excellence late in 2017, followed by Commendations in the 2018 Learning Environments Australasia Awards and SA Architecture Awards.
