At St. Christopher’s, we tap into boys’ curiosity and sense of wonder during every facet of their day. We know boys learn by doing, and that was the fuel for our BUILD (Boys Using Innovation to Learn and Design) program.
BUILD takes the best of STEM/STEAM approaches and combines them with a broad, skills-based, project-centered focus. It uses best practices for boys (project-based learning, technology-infused applications, competition, hands-on experiences) along with essential qualities for leadership.
Located in Luck Leadership Center, the school’s BUILD Lab brings students together to use high tech tools such as a 3D printer or simple materials such as cardboard. Students can design and create machines, art projects or devices in ways that focus on process, not product. The Lab is open to boys during free periods and lunch to have time to tinker on projects of interest.
