Bishop Kelly broke ground earlier this week on a new science and technology wing.

Eleven science teaching labs are coming to the facility along with an engineering and robotics shop and student commons.

The total project costs about $6 million.

Administrators say it's worth it because investing in education is invaluable.

"First and foremost, we'll be able to offer a much broader set of technology and science classes, and coursework that's not traditional, because we've built some independent study rooms into this," said Rich Raimond, Bishop Kelly High School president.

Administrators say the teaching labs will be a flexible learning space with no fixed furniture.

"I just think taking care of the needs of the young people today to make sure they're educated in a way they can handle the jobs of the future," said Peter Christensen of Bishop Kelly.

The new facility will be open before the start of the 2018 school year.
