Students working in the new STEAM Center at Princeton Day School.

Princeton Day School opened a new state-of-the-art center for science, technology, engineering, arts, math and interdisciplinary courses this month.

The new center at the upper school, called the STEAM Center, is more than 2,000 square feet  is already being used by students and faculty for a variety of new courses. The 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.

Renovations began the day after commencement in June, and were completed on schedule before school.The math and foreign language classrooms were also renovated this summer and study spaces were added.

School officials said plans are underway 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.

The Princeton Day School STEAM Committee gathers in the new STEAM Center (l-r): Chief Information Officer Jon Ostendorf, Head of Upper School Jason Robinson, Interim Math Chair Chip Cash, Libraries Dept. Chair Sheila Goeke, STEAM Coordinator Jonathan Tatkon-Coker, Head of School Paul Stellato, STEAM Committee Chair Leon Rosenberg, Science Dept. Chair Jason Park, Lower School Math Teacher Jennifer Vradenburgh, and Lower School Science Teacher Aaron Schomburg.
