Delran's Digital Fabrication Lab
Come celebrate the ground breaking of a new learning center!
Learn first hand the amazing opportunity Delran students and community have in store
Groundbreaking for the Fab Lab, a technological, hands on learning space, with construction work beginning in December.
Celebration of the completion of a critical first step. A pole barn was constructed at our Support Services site to provide needed storage, which opens the Fab Lab space.
Overall STEM vision of Cradle to Career opportunities for ALL
The Delran Township Board of Education, Garrison Architects, Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM (TIES) and the New Jersey STEM Pathways Network (NJSPN) have all supported this initiative. We thank them for their time and commitment, working together to make this vision a reality.
Fab Lab Ground Breaking Ceremony and Reception
Friday, Nov. 30th, 4:30-6pm
50 Hartford Road
RSVPs are enabled for this event.
Robotics and Rocketry
Rowan Universities Blast Off Competition included over forty students from grade schools and high schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. They were tasked to send a rocket carrying two raw hen eggs to an altitude of exactly 800-ft, with a flight duration of 41-43 seconds. The competition’s ideals include a focus on the importance of hard work, persistence, and having fun while launching dreams in whatever field our young audience could think to pursue.
Grant funded teacher projects
Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker, a STEM advocate for NJ, is pictured with Jordan Jackson-Conner at the 2018 NJ STEM Month presentation at the State House in Trenton. Jordan explained the processes and his team used to manufacture organic lotion bars, as part of a Delran Education Foundation funded project for the Advanced Manufacturing and Chemical Engineering Club.
For the past three summers, campers in Grades 3 through 12 have experienced engineering, circuitry, robotics and coding through real world learning experiences. This program, supported by generous funding of PSEG, Schneider Electric, the Delran Education Foundation and the Overdeck Foundation, has grown three fold. To support learning outside of the classroom, we look forward to the addition of the Fab Lab to promote further exploration during these five weeks.
