The Wegman Family Science and Technology Center boasts seven science laboratories, included in which is a two story signature robotics lab, faculty offices, and four computer laboratories. In addition, and consistent with the school’s holistic educational vision, the Wegman Center also features a student life area complete with an outdoor student commons, a mission and ministry suite, and formal and informal spaces for collaborative student learning. The building’s atrium cascades sunlight throughout, inspiring creativity among McQuaid students.
The design of the building is distinctive. Developed by Rochester-based SWBR Architects, the Wegman Center communicates dynamism and fosters enthusiasm for student interactive learning. “The metal panels and glass clad addition uses color and scale to blend into the campus while simultaneously displaying a sleek, angular, and thoroughly modern design befitting the progressive program it contains.” (SWBR Website) In the words of Danny Wegman, ’65, the building design truly “inspires” McQuaid men as they pursue the goals of a Jesuit education.
