About

Ferraro Choi was commissioned by the State of Hawaii Department of Education (DOE) to design a new science center for Robert Louis Stevenson Middle School.

Founded in 1937, Stevenson recently became the DOE’s first Science Signature School. The new 21,500 net-square-foot facility combines state-of-the-art technology with a sustainable architectural design to create a 21st Century Learning environment for students.

The Science Center provides Physical Science, Biology, Earth/Space and STEM/Robotics classrooms, a covered science plaza, and a multipurpose building. A south facing stargazing telescope deck on the second floor supplements the school’s astronomy program.

The double height STEM/Robotics space is designed to facilitate viewing of interschool robotics competitions involving 24 Oahu schools.
