In addition to Engineering and Computer Science classes, the Upper School DREAM Lab® provides a space for clubs such as TSA and Girls Who Code to meet. Students interested in STEM are encouraged to utilize the workspace whenever free.
Engineering students are given an overview of the various types of engineering while learning about the engineering design process, drafting, observation and communication. Students solve real world problems as they are trained to use a variety of hand tools and larger equipment including a Table Saw, Band Saw, Drill Press and Sliding Compound Miter Saw. Computer Science students gain proficiency in abstraction, logic, problem solving and communication while learning to write clean code.
Many students continue to use the Upper School DREAM Lab to complete advanced, self-directed projects and network with industry professionals. With additional access to a laser cutter and 3D printers, students weave design into their traditional technical classes.
