Sandy & Danny Daugherty Center for STEAM Excellence
The SDDCSE is looking at remodeling two rooms in the back of the building. These rooms have been untouched and used for storage since 2017 by the occupants of the Center. Now, as Superior STEAM grows in members, that space becomes needed more and more.

About the SDDCSE
1301 is a short-hand name for the Sandy & Danny Daugherty Center for STEAM Excellence (SDDCSE). Science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) is what happens at 1301. Hence STEAM @ 1301.
Students have been inspired within STEAM at 1301 since 2017 when it was first opened.
During the summer and fall of 2016, the late Dan Daugherty led the remodel of 1301 I Street in Bedford to transform it from his personal and company storage to become a place where science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) thrived. Sadly, he passed away on Christmas Eve eve 2016, but since 2017 that building–now called the Sandy and Danny Daugherty Center for STEAM Excellence–has housed 10+ robotics teams and has seen several hundred people continually visit and learn.
Today, the building is occupied by Superior STEAM. A year-long youth development program through the Lawrence County Purdue 4-H Extension. The SDDCSE is working on creating a makerspace that will be open to the public--upon request--as well.
