Bill Nye, Max Planck Institute, and Scripps Research Celebrate the Opening of A Multimillion Dollar STEM Facility at American Heritage School

Delray Beach, Florida – American Heritage School is consistently one of the top high schools in the state and nation in scientific research and robotics competitions and is pleased to announce the grand opening of a new $8 million building for their stem-based programs that promote science research, engineering, and robotics.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on April 10th at 10:00am at the school’s Boca/Delray campus – 6200 Linton Blvd. Special remarks will be given by Bill Nye, Max Planck Florida Institute, Scripps Research, and local dignitaries as they dedicate the new building to the students and faculty at American Heritage School.

The two-story, 12,000-square foot facility is a science utopia that houses an electron microscope, university-level science research labs, robotics and prototyping labs, and engineering and physics classrooms, as well as a pre-engineering program with classes taught daily by top engineers throughout the community.

“Our goal is to continually innovate and create the best academic facilities in the country in all areas of academics and the arts,” says Dr. Douglas Laurie, President of American Heritage School. “This is a big step forward in our stem-based curriculum, and with our new science and prototyping labs comparable to what you would find on college campuses, we look forward to watching our nationally recognized students reach their highest potential as the next generation of scientists and engineers.”
