As Arizona’s STEM-University, the STEM Education Center on Embry-Riddle’s Prescott Campus will be a vital tool in sustaining and expanding aviation and aerospace education, as well as promoting and enhancing STEM education throughout the Prescott community and Arizona statewide.
Using the latest technologies, the STEM Education Center will thrive as a lab and science center for scholarship, service and research for all who have a vested interest in the promotion and expansion of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
A contribution to name and fund construction of the STEM Education Center is a vital investment in Embry-Riddle Prescott that will enable generations of students to choose the exciting world of STEM and all its possibilities.
The Robotics Lab will be a state-of-the-art facility that will support multiple courses, labs and research in robotics. The lab will feature indoor and outdoor testing areas, enabling the development of stationary, mobile, and aerial robotic platforms.
Mechanical Engineering students will study how thermo-fluid phenomena work and how they affect engineering design. The Energy Labs will provide experience with standard and green energy experiments. A connected portion of the lab will house the senior design and research teams, and an outside energy yard will allow the students to experiment with working energy-harvesting devices.
In this lab, students will research the science and technology behind exotic propulsion systems, including the study of matter and antimatter interactions, which could ultimately be used to revolutionize deep space travel.
This laboratory facility will allow Embry-Riddle to teach cutting-edge forensic biology so that graduates may solve cases and help prevent acts of crime and/or terror. Whether examining DNA to help determine guilt or innocence or linking exploded bomb fragments to terrorists, the graduates from Embry-Riddle will be well prepared to succeed in the workforce. Graduates who decide to continue their education in graduate school or medical school will be thoroughly prepared.
Activities performed in the lab will include tissue sampling and analysis of DNA evidence and blood types, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), genetic sequencing, microscopy techniques, biochemical analyses of body fluids and environmental contaminants, anatomy and physiology, as well as microbial identification.
