    STEM facilities and tech

    State-of-the-Art Technology & Facilities

    When our science and technology building, Nichols Hall, opened in 2009, it was the first LEED-Gold certified school building in Santa Clara County. Its unique design allows for seamless collaboration between faculty, and each lab is dedicated to its science discipline, allowing for ongoing research without needing to tear down and reset in order to accommodate another class. Our students regularly use such tech tools as an advanced 3-D touch interactive cadaver dissection table, 3-D printers in the math and robotics labs, a cloud chamber for physics, and high end UV-visual spectrometer, thermal camera and anti-vibration optics bench.

    STEM Achievements

    We design our programs and offerings at Harker to inspire students to explore their passions, develop their strengths and share their talents with their classmates, teammates and the greater community. Our students are eager to make a difference, and we celebrate all of their accomplishments.
