PJM STEM Center Unveiled!
September 8, 2019 was a milestone event at Eagle Hill School with the official dedication and opening of the state-of-the-art PJM STEM Center. The 39,000 square-foot new building construction and renovation of the academic complex will encompass Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, as well as dedicated space for innovation and entrepreneurialism.
“There is not enough ink in the world to describe my time at Eagle Hill. It set me on a course for my entire life that allowed me to give back and help others in need.”
- Jason Richardson Alumni/ae Spotlight Feature EHS Class of 1983
Jason Richardson ’83 visited campus recently almost 40 years to the day since he originally began his journey at Eagle Hill. Times have changed, but the values he learned and his passion to help other people has not. Read Jason’s inspiring story and the continuous mission he pursues.
A: In about 12 years, I am hoping to retire and go back and teach others how to cook! I would love to impact young adults the way I was impacted, and if I can help them find their passion like I did, that would be very satisfying.
Q: What words do you think of when you think of Eagle Hill
A: When I think of Eagle Hill, I think of love, hope, and joy. There is so much love on campus, it is such a welcoming environment. This place also provides so much hope to students and families, like it did for mine. Some of my best memories are from Eagle Hill.
Q: If you had any advice to give to a current Eagle Hill student, what would it be?
A: The door is always open for people at Eagle Hill. Make connections with your teachers and listen to them. They love and care for you, and they will help you if you want to be helped.
It's a Spooky Season
Luke B. ’21 had a vision for a project that is set to race some hearts, bring some scares, and more importantly, bring the Eagle Hill and local community together for some Halloween fun.
Positioned so it will be open and available for the Hardwick, MA and general EHS community during Family Weekend (October 24-26 and October 30-31), Luke and his crew has been hard at work building an elaborate and exciting haunted house just in time to kick off the holiday season.
Amin S. '20, along with the rest of Eagle Hill students, have been actively creating and designing projects in the Makerspace within of the state-of-the-art PJM Stem Center. These projects will be highlighted throughout the year, as our students continue to inspire us with their ideas every day.
Amin shows off his Hilbert cube, which he made using a 3D printer in the new PJM STEM Center. Taking him over 31 hours to make, a Hilbert cube is one, long piece to develop!
To learn more about Amin's creation, feel free to visit this page on the Hilbert cube.
To view some of the spaces inside of the PJM STEM Center where these projects are created, take a look here.
