Students at Frankford Friends School know what it means to be innovative, especially in the subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

These areas of study, coined as STEM, are the new focuses of Frankford Friends’ proposed NEST center, an area on the school’s campus that will allow students to experiment with these subjects through a Media Studio, an Innovation Workshop and a Nature Learning Lab.

The NEST is that new facility that looks like a garden on the corner of Griscom and Orthodox Streets.  That, plus the former parsonage building of the Central United Methodist Church, are what’s happening.
