Our Campus

OUR CAMPUS

Roots 2 STEM has a 7100 square foot facility with Lab of Discovery, Science Lab, Aerospace Room, Electronics Lab and Machine Room. We also have classroom space with smart displays for projects and teaching STEM curriculum. and training needs.

We have fully equipped lab stations, with a laptop computers for project research, design, coding and using programs such as AutoCAD, . We have 3D printers, CNC machines and electronic test equipment where students can design and build components for their projects. Our lab also includes a full workshop, including a state-of-the-art laser cutter, power tools and hand tools for building and machining project elements.

Roots 2 STEM uses the latest in Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone for the projects we design, build and code.
