    STEAM

    Full STEAM ahead!

    STEAM is a program that incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math under one umbrella in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. This exciting mix of creativity (art and design) and science (technology, engineering and math) helps students develop innovative solutions to real-life problems. It enables them to harness their creativity and make it tangible via the principles of mathematics and science. 

    STEAM, with its focus on project-based learning, prepares students for a wide variety of CEGEP programs in Arts, Design and Technology. Options such as Graphic Design, Sound Engineering, and Coding & Robotics allow STEAM students to enter a host of careers such as digital artists, graphic designers, software developers, industrial/fashion designers and video game programmers.

    "The Villa Maria STEAM program offers an exciting fusion of science, experimentation, creativity, and critical thinking, preparing students for the challenges and opportunities of the future."
