NuVu’s students are young people eager to build new things, use technology, and work in a team of makers. They are curious to learn and ready to experiment with iterative and critical thinking. Because of the diversity of personalities and interests of NuVu participants, almost all of our students will find their niche in one or more of the Studios.
Personal attention is not the exception but the rule at NuVu. Each student is part of a Studio and the staff-to-student ratio is approximately 1-to-6. The NuVu Summer Team of Coaches and Summer Program Director are directly responsible for addressing the needs of each student. Staff are accessible and always checking in with students to ensure that everyone is engaged, learning, and invested in their work. Our summer program is unique because of the easy access students have to our staff.
+ Unlined sketchbook and writing utensils (pencils or pens).
+ Water bottle
+ Packed lunch for the middle school students
NuVu will supply typical and specialty materials, equipment, tools, and supplies needed by students in each Studio.
*Chromebooks and tablets are not robust enough for the software used by our students
Students should dress in comfortable attire that can also withstand some hands-on work. Due to the nature of prototyping and the use of materials and fabrication tools, students must wear protective footwear (no open-toed sandals).
Lunch is not provided for students enrolled in the middle school program. However, due to the location of MIT and limited food options, students enrolled in the high school program will be provided lunch daily.
Parents should contact the Summer Program Director through NuVu’s Main Office via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (617-945-7716).
