This Spring our theme is "Inside-Out Architecture." This season, we’ll turn our world inside-out by starting with designing an object based around human needs and then working our way out - creating a story, building a space, designing a landscape, creating a community, and even imagining that object in outer space! We’ll think of ways to integrate our designs with the natural environment, and explore how basic shapes and patterns can adapt to work with different scales of design.
Kids will explore this theme through a number of topics each week. From designing products for users to stop-motion walk throughs to 3D models of landscapes, 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!
