Design Thinking & Mechatronics
Building STEAM at St. Raymond School
The Mechatronics program at St. Raymond School is based on Catholic values. Students learn why we build machines and who we build machines for at the same time we learn how to code, wire microcontrollers and fabricate with digital design and prototype tools.
We focus on graduating students into high school with the "Option C" mentality. That is, if machine A or machine B does not serve the present need than we want our students to default to "oh, right - machine C should exist, so I will just build it"
The Mechatronics program serves students in grades 1-8. Students have access to supervised use of the 3D printer, vinyl cutter, laser cutter, soldering station as well as various hand and power tools. to work on their own personal projects.
