Built in 2017 and officially dedicated in the spring of 2019, the Wellemeyer STEAM Center is a dynamic makerspace equipped with a powerful array of digital fabrication tools, including a laser cutter, 3-D printer and other CNC instruments.
Located in the heart of the Upper School at the convergence of our math and science wings, this 2000-square-feet of prime real estate embodies the School’s commitment to delivering applied and interdisciplinary science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics experiences. In the Wellemeyer STEAM Center, more than 200 Upper School students innovate daily, facilitated by experts in math, science, computer science and the industrial arts. Filled with students every hour of the day and often long after classes end, the Wellemeyer STEAM Center resonates with focused energy and drive as upper schoolers contend with real-world problems that engineers, programmers, researchers, designers and developers are seeking to solve at universities and organizations around the globe.
"It's difficult for me to overstate the importance of this facility, which has come to identify perhaps more than any other the innovative heart of our School."
Paul J. Stellato, Head of School
