NuVu Summer is back for another season of creative hands-on learning - Onsite!

Summer 2023 opens up a treasure chest full of discoveries, adventures, and new knowledge. Join NuVu this summer as we pave through uncharted lands with the help of exploration rovers, battlebots, naturalia wearables and much more. Through each unique studio, students explore the theme of uncharted lands and discovery as they immerse in the long lost tales of hidden treasures and transformative voyages.

In each studio, students will stretch their creative limits to come up with something they have never created before. Over a period of two weeks, students will go through the process of conceptualizing, designing, making and presenting their projects learning technical skills along the way. They will learn to work together in teams and collaboratively problem solve with the help of their coaches. Don’t miss the chance to experience our most popular NuVu studios- onsite!
