Bill Nye Celebrates Grand Opening of Science Research, Engineering, and Robotics Building

Bill Nye “The Science Guy” was on hand at American Heritage School in Boca Raton, Florida for the special celebration of the Grand Opening of our new Science Research, Engineering, and Robotics building. He spent the entire day on our campus to first cut the ceremonial red ribbon, then tour the new building and visit a Pre-Engineering class, AP Chemistry, the working science lab, and the robotics practice field under the tent behind the new building. He also gave a keynote address, emphasizing to the students specifically, how their perspective of life will change as they get older. “What we want to do is make every day as good as it can be,” Bill Nye said, “and when you’re here in school, you may have noticed some challenging days, but the best is yet ahead so don’t worry about what you’re going to do in life, that will just happen. Pursue what you want to do in school…and then working together, your instructors here and you will, dare I say it, change the world!”


Our new two-story, 12,000-square foot facility is a science utopia that houses an electron microscope, university-level science research labs, robotics and prototyping labs, and engineering and physics classrooms, as well as a pre-engineering program with classes taught daily by top engineers throughout the community.


"Our school strives for excellence and helping students find their passion,” says Dr. Douglas Laurie, President of American Heritage School. “This new building will be home for generations to the thinkers, creators, and dreamers of the future and may one day provide the spark, inspiration, or thought that will change the world for the better.”
