This Summer, we are working with TeachFuture to provide Summer Studios to high schoolers in China. Our first session just wrapped up with students from Shenzhen International Foundation College Bao'an Campus in Shenzhen, China. The studio was lead by our NuVuX Fellow, Nakeia Medcalf, and was focused on wearable-technologies.
The students were enthusiastic about learning NuVu's studio process and were immersed in hands-on design for 2 weeks, developing projects related to wearable-technology. We conducted the studio virtually while students were based at their home school in Shenzhen. The Chinese students also connected with NuVu's graduates in the US via a virtual cultural exchange, sharing stories and projects.
We are happy to have the opportunity to work with the school and these students this summer. We look forward to continuing the partnership and expanding our studio offerings this coming Fall.
