Full STEAM Ahead

At The Village School, our long-standing excellence in STEAM education and rigorous hands-on programs enable our globally-minded students to access opportunities within their community and from around the world. Our curriculum leverages innovation, diligence, and collaboration in support of the ambitious goals of our students and our culture of champions.

Village Teachers at MIT

MIT Collaboration

Village offers a unique collaboration with The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) which includes a series of in-school challenges that focus on the juncture between the five STEAM disciplines, including bioengineering, robotics, and computer coding. Our teachers and students spend time every year immersed in STEAM workshops with leading academics at the annual Cambridge Science Festival at MIT, providing opportunities to learn directly from researchers at one of the world’s leading STEAM institutions.

Village high school students traveled to CERN to learn more about particle physics

CERN

Each year, our students have the opportunity to visit Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (CERN) in Switzerland as part of the CERN Beamline for Schools program. The facility operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world, and during the first week of March, a team of Village high school IB Physics students travel to Geneva to learn first-hand about particle physics and to use CERN’s particle accelerator. The team designs an experiment proposal which, if accepted allows students to return and conduct their experiment during the program year. This highly competitive program enhances our students’ understanding of particle physics in the areas of nuclear medicine, energy management, and sustainability.

Staff members using DotLens

DotLens

As part of the pilot program with the University of Houston, our science teachers are developing lessons integrating the use of DotLenses in science exploration. DotLens is an elastomeric inkjet-printed lens that can be attached onto smartphone cameras like a contact lens for the eye. It enables imaging resolutions down to one micrometer. Leaf veins, fingerprints, cloth fibers, insects, animal furs, blood smears, biopsy sections, and polystyrene beads, are some of the materials imaged by DotLens with a much as 100x total magnification. DotLens is also used across all grade levels at Village, Pre-K to 12th grade, as an interactive personal smartphone microscope for science exploration.

MIT Clubs

Launch Club - To enhance our students’ entrepreneurial mindset and skills, the Launch Club in collaboration with MIT, forms a team to start a company, using the course materials that follow the rigor and standards of the university. Top competing teams are invited to MIT in the spring to learn, to pitch their ideas, and with the support of a mentor, improve their companies. 

Creative Tech Club - Village students in collaboration with MIT, utilize MaKey MaKey to invent and innovate. Students turn everyday objects into touch pads and combine them with Internet technologies to create art and solve engineering challenges. The club encourages students to think of themselves as makers and agents of change, and reaffirms the "Maker's Mindset," that everyone is creative, inventive, and imaginative. 

Our award winning science bowl team

Science Bowl

Science Bowl is a highly competitive science education event where teams of high school students compete to solve technical problems, and respond to questions from all branches of science and math. Top students at Village regularly compete during the elimination rounds. The top ten students qualify for the regional competitions in February at Texas A&M University. The team who wins the regionals advances to the nationals in April. Village students have won regional championships and runner-ups at the national level.  

The Green House

At Village, our students enjoy studying ecology with a fully functioning green house. The students harvest herbs and plants and experiment with gardening and solar power. They also grow plants without soil using hydroponics.
