Level Up Village connects students from around the world for virtual collaboration and cultural exchange through its roster of global STEAM courses, which cover topics such as CAD & 3D printing, web design, programming and water chemistry. Students apply design thinking to real-world challenges, conduct experiments and develop prototypes – all while communicating and collaborating with global partner students who are following the same curriculum. In March, Level Up Village was the first organization to receive the ISTE Seal of Alignment at the Proficiency Level for the 2016 ISTE Standards for Students. LUV courses also meet NCGS and Common Core state standards.
