STEAM Facility Opens in New Jersey HS

A New Jersey school district opened a $4.4 million STEAM facility at Mahwah High School in New Jersey. Known as the “Thunderbird Think Tank,” the 9,000 square-foot building was designed to host the district’s tech-centered programs like robotics, computer modeling and mobile app design.

The facility accommodates 200 students and features space for general instruction, a glass-walled cube for project displays and multiple indoor and outdoor labs.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the STEAM addition will be held on Sept. 10.
