New STEM Building
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) impact our everyday lives, from our iPads to the technologies that enable us to explore the world around us. It also drives innovation in our fast-changing global economy.
STEM, which provides students with experiential learning, is very hands-on and skill based.
Students develop key skills through STEM including:
- critical analysis
- problem solving
- digital literacy
Our College Board endorsed that students need a strong foundation in STEM to support their evolving future careers. The Marian Centre, a new multilevel, architectural building at Brigidine College, will become the epicentre of learning for the Mathematics, Sciences and Technologies and will entrench STEM learning well into the future.
Features of the Marian Centre include spacious science laboratories, flexible and collaborative classrooms, an industrial laser printer and tiered theatrette seating. STEM activities to be enjoyed by students will include robotics, coding, I.T design technologies, problem solving clubs and international women’s united nations online exchanges.
The Marian Centre was named after Mary and will follow in the Spirituality of Mary, where a young woman’s spirit for learning will be enlivened by our faith tradition and connections with our God.
The Spirituality of Mary is:
A woman of faith and servant of the Lord
She embarks on a journey that involves light and darkness
A contemplative united to the Spirit and to her Son
She is one of the anawtm in solidarity with all peoples
A la mujer para los demas (a woman for others) in the felicitous phrase of Father Jesus.
