Construction of Four STEM Labs

Thanks to a challenge posed by Leonard Schaeffer ’63, more than $600,000 were raised for the construction of a series of four high-tech science labs flexible enough to handle multiple classes in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Improving STEM education and attracting more students to technical fields have become integral to local, state and national efforts in preparing young people for the 21st-century workforce. STEM encompasses a range of fields including the sciences, mathematics, engineering and computational thinking as well as design, manufacturing and robotics.
