Children's Challenge | STEM Education

The students now ask you to make their Christmas wish come true by investing in their STEM education through Children’s Challenge 2018!

In 2016, Oak Hill opened the Makerspace: a classroom designed for students to invent, build, and test their designs. Children’s Challenge 2018 will fund new equipment and supplies so that the space continues to offer the latest in technology and machinery. Oak Hill students are eager and excited for their time in the makerspace, and this new equipment will take their experiential learning to the next level.

Villa Duchesne students look to build on the strong foundation offered at Oak Hill. Our alumni have achieved great success in the sciences in recent decades. Today’s students could do even more with a 21st-century facility created specifically for STEM.

Through the redesign of current office and storage spaces, a state-of-the-art Innovation Lab will be at the heart of the Katherine Danis Science Center. The lab is both a working space and classroom where students utilize the design-thinking process to discover solutions to real-world problems. Laser cutters, 3D printers, touch-screen monitors, power tools, computers, mobile work stations, robotics equipment, computer software, modular furniture, and collaboration boards will all create a place that expands our curricular and extra-curricular offerings.

We foster in students—from our junior kindergartners to our seniors—a spirit of adventure when it comes to STEM exploration. We need your support to keep that spirit alive as students explore new careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. We ask you to donate today and join us in unlocking the potential of STEM at Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School.
