TOUR THE KING’S ACADEMY’S NEW SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER
(West Palm Beach, FL) – To begin the 2018-2019 school year, The King’s Academy will unveil its newest campus addition – the Boswell Science and Technology Center. Parents, students, supporters and the media are invited to tour the 12,000-square-foot, two-story, eight-classroom building, dedicated to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) studies.
The Boswell Center includes three life science laboratories, a chemistry/physics laboratory, four flexible-design STEM classrooms and four offices. Funding for the $2.7 million project came from gifts from parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends of the school. The building is named in honor of the lead gift from Holly (Loveland) and John Boswell of Palm Beach Gardens. The Chemistry/Physics laboratory is named in recognition of a major gift form Jan Smith of Sewall’s Point; the Life Sciences laboratory is named in recognition of a significant gift from Mr. Raul and Dr. Jill Rodila of Palm Beach Gardens; and other naming opportunities are available.
“The Boswell Science and Technology Center will attract students to King’s who aspire to cure disease, solve engineering problems, and provide technological solutions – allowing needed opportunities to discover God-given passions rooted in STEM pursuits,” said Randal L Martin, president of The King’s Academy.
Construction began on the Boswell Center in September 2017. It was designed by Randolph Hansen of InterPlan Architects, Inc., and was built by Hedrick Brothers Construction.
