The STEAM centre expands and improves the campus at St Andrew’s School for Girls; providing an educational facility that uses effective methods to teach the subjects of STEAM. This building is home to state of the art science labs along with multi-use classrooms. The classrooms were designed to make use of natural daylight to provide a creative and fun space in which girls can learn.
Each science lab is equipped with modern equipment and apparatus for practical experimentation. To further efforts to stay green, this project utilizes solar panels which will generate solar power; and a rooftop garden which harvests vegetables.
The building aims to stimulate curiosity, develop inquiring minds and expose our girls to new technologies; offering an environment which showcases research and is a dynamic place for experience sharing.
