High school students got an enlightening lesson on heat transfer as physics teacher, Mr. Mark Wolff, melted aluminum cans. Science is happening in Villa's classrooms, hallways, STEM labs, and all around the campus.

This year, students learned about Newton's Laws from inside a Bubble Ball. They launched rockets and built Rube Goldberg machines. Second grade students built safe racers to try to protect an egg in a crash. High school students conducted a similar experiment...launching their vehicles from a third floor window. We also welcomed the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's Science Mobile for elementary students. We've hosted STEM and Makers Days. Students are also encouraged to participate in extracurricular science programs through our Makers Club in junior high/high school and our elementary Science Olympiad and LEGO Robotics.

Science is all around us. To learn more about Villa's STEM program, please contact Mrs. Janet Baugh at 859-331-6333 ext. 139 or at
