STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programming has always been part of a Mercy education, but with the AdvancED STEM Certification in 2016, we created a formalized STEM-focused curriculum. In addition, we have connected STEM with our innovative Digital Arts program giving us an elite STEAM program that provides an unmatched educational experience in these areas, as well as opens doors to job fields in high demand.
STEM Innovation Center
This state-of-the-art area is dedicated to STEM and showcases our traditional 3-D printers, Form 1+ High Resolution 3-D printer, laser cutter, Router Miller and more.
Mercy students learn how to build drones that can deliver medical supplies and food to impoverished countries, observe marine wildlife without disturbing the ecosystem, take pictures to create aerial maps of locations, and anything else they can dream up!
