Dr. Gerald L. Boarman Discovery Center, The Bullis School

The aspiration of the Bullis School is to be at the cutting edge of preparing students for leadership in a dynamic new world. This comes with the understanding that the Arts & Sciences are closely linked through technology and are undergoing dramatic transformation. The new Discovery Center will become the heart of the Bullis campus. The design’s dynamic and transparent architecture, with views to a grand stair and second floor Innovation Lab, signifies the exciting activities occurring within. Learning, creativity and exploration are enhanced and enriched through an environment that is open and flexible to foster collaboration and the exchange of ideas. A specialized classroom meets the needs of a growing entrepreneurial program, while other classrooms and lab spaces advance programs in the sciences, including robotics and fabrication, and distance learning. A feature wall outside the Studio Theater puts science on display, while a variety of student-centered spaces allow for chance encounters and socializing for students and the entire Bullis community—activities proven to inspire innovation in higher education and the workplace.
