Big & Little_Spring 2019 PreVu (Ages 5-7)

Big and Little

1 / 1

To celebrate our first season of PreVu + PreVu 2 for older kids, we're exploring everything Big and Little. We'll explore how some things that we use everyday have gotten smaller (phones, computers, etc.) while other everyday things have gotten bigger (houses, cars, etc.). We'll explore ideas of scale, basic shapes and structures that allow us to construct big and small things, micro and macro robotics, how to design expandable structures, and life-sized games.

This Spring, our PreVu theme is "Big and Little"! Kids will explore this theme through a number of topics each week. From mapping unexplored places to creating life-sized machines to coding their way to a secret treasure, kids will be making and designing each week! In each Session, NuVu Coaches will frame the challenge within a larger topic and encourage kids to develop their ideas through an iterative process over the course of the activity. Throughout the program, kids will enhance their problem solving, collaboration and making skills, and with persistence, they will learn to think big and deeply about the world and people around them.

Students will have the opportunity to develop ideas using hands-on modeling and making. They will also learn to use software and fabrication tools that allow for prototyping and iterating to hone their unique designs. They will learn to constructively support each other’s projects and work together to create a series of storytelling adventures!
