Aim and Motivation
The Science Block will give girls a platform to develop STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) skills and learn about the array of relevant study pathways available to them; thereby uplifting women, and creating gender equality, in the STEAM fields.
The #FullSTEAMahead project has the goals of legacy creation and community building

The Science Block will expand and improve 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 will be 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 will be equipped with modern equipment and apparatus for practical experimentation. To further efforts to stay green, this project will utilize solar panels which will generate solar power; and a rooftop garden which will harvest 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.
