Chaminade Julienne dedicated its newly constructed CJ STEMM Center during a grand opening Wednesday, Aug. 28. Dayton area STEM professionals and educators, alumni and partners came to campus to see how the new learning spaces would make a difference in the education of today’s students. Though the Center was planned and designed to support science, technology, engineering, math and medicine education, all departments will have the option to use the new facility, and every student will use the remodeled spaces.
Crews are working to put the finishing touches on the brand new CJ STEMM Center, a $4 million project first announced in early January 2013. Construction to renovate an existing section of second floor classrooms, hallways and laboratories continues to wind down as the 2013-14 school year approaches.
A group of Miami Valley junior high students put STEMM education to good use, applying the steps of the engineering design process as part of a CJ summer camp service project with a little inspiration from Bastech, Inc., one of Dayton’s leaders in 3D printing technology.
