Princeton Day School Unveils New State-of-the-Art STEAM Center

Princeton – Princeton Day School announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art STEAM Center in the Upper School. The space, which is already being used by students and faculty for a variety of new science, technology, engineering, arts, and math interdisciplinary courses, is a state-of-the-art expansion of the current facilities, covering more than 2,000 square feet of space on the Upper School math/foreign language corridors. (Incidentally, the math and foreign language classrooms were also completely renovated and study spaces added.)

 

The STEAM Center is the fruit of the labors of the PDS STEAM Committee, led by Head of School Paul Stellato and Scientist in Residence and Committee Chair Dr. Leon Rosenberg, and comprised of faculty from all three divisions and key leadership staff. The STEAM Committee worked tirelessly last year to not only design a new space for the STEAM program, working closely with architects from Architectural Resources of Cambridge, but also to invigorate and expand the current STEAM curriculum.

 

The new Center is open, well-lit, flexible, modular, and includes a minimum of fixed structures to better accommodate a wide variety of hands-on courses. There is a large classroom area and an adjacent smaller classroom to house the computer science classes, along with an office for the School’s new STEAM Coordinator Jonathan Tatkon-Coker, who has a background in product design for companies including Apple and Nike.

 

The renovation began the day after commencement in June, and was completed right on schedule before school started thanks to the round-the-clock crews organized by Director of Major Projects Ron Tola.

 

There are plans underway this year to create similar STEAM Centers in both the Lower and Middle Schools, as Princeton Day School continues to expand and sequence the STEAM curriculum across all divisions. For more, visit www.pds.org/academics/steam-initiative
