Episcopal students and staff commemorated a milestone in the construction of the new Academic Commons building with a beam signing event this week. Students from all three divisions left their mark on the beams, which will support the highest point of the new math and science innovation center, set to open by August 2018.
Construction began on the two-story facility in the spring of 2017. Once complete it will be the center of Upper School math and science learning with spaces for physics, biology and chemistry. The plans were developed to foster and encourage innovative, collaborative learning with dedicated project spaces and workrooms. In addition to math and science, the building will also feature space for entrepreneurial studies and engineering and robotics.
