A remodel to the third-floor and chemistry lab at Valley City High School should better students' learning experience while keeping them safer and more organized, said science teacher Matt Nielson, who led the remodel.

Nielson has taught chemistry, physics, astronomy and ecology in the district for 10 years and has wanted to upgrade his classroom for the past five. He started the project, which included adding a refitted fume hood and a goggle storage center as well as organizing the chemical storage area, a year ago.
