In 2015, an 11,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art STEM Center was built on the Uihlein Campus in Lakewood Ranch. The Dart Foundation and Family STEM Center includes a STEM project lab, design and creativity center, a fully equipped marine biology lab, 3-D printers, robotics work stations, and updated classroom spaces. The Center overlooks a picturesque lake where students conduct scientific research.
In 2017, Lower School facilities were renovated to build a devoted STEM lab and a Marine Science classroom that features touch tanks and aquariums. The new Dart STEM Lab allows students to explore the world around them with innovative resources such as robotics, augmented reality software, video-teleconferencing, and 3-D printing. These spaces allow our young students to conduct projects and experiments and connect with scientists from around the world.
In 2020, a 13,500 sq. ft. one-of-a-kind Middle School facility was completed. This state-of-the-art facility includes an academic commons, world language, humanities, and visual arts classrooms. The first floor spaces include an e-Sports room, STEM lab, math classroom, science classroom and laboratory. Electricity for the building is generated and collected from solar panels on the exterior of the facility.
