Engineering & Robotics Center

Completed in August 2016

 

As hands-on learners, boys respond well to technology when it comes to learning not only science, engineering, and math, but also digital arts, robotics, and 3-D design.

 

We are committed to providing students with opportunities in and out of the classroom to develop the technological skills necessary to meet the challenges of higher education and the world beyond.

 

With your help, this renovation supported a broader curriculum in mathematics and engineering as well as the digital arts, capped by an innovative computer lab.
