Looking back at last year’s MIT theme of Navigating Tomorrow, I’d say that the school really brought the A in STEAM alive! Through using the theme as a focus for selecting the piece of art for our Art Institute Collaboration, the students found creative ways to bring Miss Expanding Universe alive, and were able to incorporate both dance and music into the theme too. It was a real celebration of the creative connections you can find when you are working with institutions such as MIT, Juilliard, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
This year our theme from MIT is Superheroes. Inspired by the cutting edge research and innovation from MIT, we will be exploring Super Nature, Epic Identity, and Medical Marvels this year. Look out for these themes peppered through our curriculum, and details dotted around the school. In addition, keep an eye out for details about our Maker Fair this year as we have Super plans for it!
