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."

Architecture, Building & Design
A historical perspective on forms, equilibrium of forces, proportions, and materials, with an understanding of the environmental impact of architecture.
This is a Ministry-required course for entry into Science-based CEGEP programs. Advanced scientific and technological literacy in the material world, the living world, earth, space, and the technological world.
Animation and Sound Engineering
Basic concepts of animation, including modelling and scripting will be studied. These skills will be applied to create a short animation, complemented by an original soundtrack.
Coding & Robotics
Students will be introduced to open source software to develop an understanding of coding and will apply this understanding by using robotics and other technologies.
In this course, videography will be taken to new heights with industry standard tools such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects and Adobe Animate.
This course will approach design as a means to prepare students for the digital arts. Students will use Adobe software such as Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesign.
