The Upper School opened a new three level, state-of-the-art Dr Lynne B Harrison STEM Center in Fall 2015. Two levels of the building are dedicated to STEM and offer space for a full competition field for the Robotics team, dedicated areas for project construction, additional 3D printers and a fully-stocked workshop with tools and instruments for students, including a laser cutter and CNC router.
The center’s third floor serves as a multipurpose space for students to collaborate with one another as well as attend lectures and demonstrations. Middle School and High School students can also utilize the Macintosh lab, allowing students to complete a wider range of projects in their computer science, digital media and art courses.
To promote optimum learning, the Lower School has two new 3D printers in the science lab as well as a fully-equipped computer lab and computers in every classroom. Forty iPads are shared among teachers and classes when appropriate for classroom use. With a focus on experiential learning, our outdoor garden and science lab bring science to life for Lower School students who are able to truly witness the fruits of their labor as they learn about and observe the vegetation they help plant.
