One cheerful “Einstein” and a “mad scientist” held open the doors to the new Boswell Science and Technology Center, welcoming guests and staff to explore the hallways of scientific discovery at The King’s Academy.
On August 13, 2018, more than 300 guests and staff members toured the pristine classrooms, laboratories and offices of The King’s Academy’s newest investment in 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 1995 King’s alum Holly (Loveland) and John Boswell of Palm Beach Gardens. The Chemistry/Physics laboratory is named in recognition of a major gift from 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.
Construction began on the Boswell Center in September 2017.
