Today was the first day of our Summer Program at Kelvinside Academy, and it was a day packed with design and making! Our two studios, Biofashion and Swarm Robotics, kicked off to a great start. Our NuVu Coaches are working with a cohort of students from Kelvinside Academy for one full week, and students will be designing unique solutions to some grand challenges!

This is the 5th year of our Summer Program, and the biggest of them all! This past Monday, over 110 students descended onto our various NuVu locations in Cambridge and Scituate, MA. This Summer, we have programs set across three locations: Human++ Program in NuVu in Cambridge, an advanced program at MIT, and a middle school program at Inly School! Students are already building their first prototypes in various studios, including Biofashion, Cyborg Athletes, Hacking Drones and Machine Art!
In addition, last Sunday our Summer Residential Program began with a splash. Outside of the Day Program, high school students will get a deep dive into Boston's rich cultural history as well as tour some of the leading startups around the city.
Our Summer Innovation Camp for Educators this year brings together over 80 educators from around the world to experience our studio model and process firsthand. This year, we have two tracks: "Studio" and "Big Picture." Each track focuses on different goals and objectives, but each experience allows educators to get a deeper understanding of our studio-model.
NuVu has been honored in the Core77 Design Awards 2017! The Design Education Initiative Jury chose our work out of hundreds of finalists for our "outstanding execution, insight, creativity, and intent."
Here are the official award details:
