Fall 2018 PreVu
Open to : Ages 5-7

PreVu is a studio-based experience to unleash young kids’ creativity and imagination.

NuVu is a place where young students grow their spirit of innovation. Immersed in our design process, students use their curiosity and creativity to explore new ideas and make their concepts come to life. Our model is based on the architecture studio model. For each program, we use imaginative themes to frame activities in which students dive into hands-on design, engineering, science, technology, art and more!

This Fall, we are beginning the seventh season of PreVu, our kids program for young innovators. In each Session, kids (ages 5-7) will be introduced to a real-world problem and use their creative problem solving, critical thinking and innovation skills to make and build solutions. During the Session, our young innovators will learn about the design process, new technologies and various analog and digital tools (such as 3D printing and laser cutting) to create amazing work.

Theme & Topics

Adventure brings joy, energy and excitement to our life. It means we are taking a bold, new step towards an unknown task or mission with unexpected results. This bold search for adventure has led us to many discoveries about our planet and to continue to search the stars for new planets and species.

This Fall, our PreVu theme is Adventure! Kids will explore this theme through a number of topics each week. From mapping unexplored places to creating discovery machines to coding their way to a secret treasure, kids will be making and designing each week! In each Studio, 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.


Fall 2018 PreVu begins on Sunday, September 30, 2018 and continues until Sunday, November 18, 2018. PreVu includes 8 Sessions. Each Session takes place on Sundays from 1pm to 3pm. All Studios are open to kids ages 5 to 7. This is a drop-off program. Parents are required to remain off-site for the duration of the two hours.

A maximum of 12 students will be accepted for this program. Because enrollment is limited, we recommend that you register and send your final payment as soon as possible.

A deposit of $200 per Session must accompany each registration, and can be paid online through NuVu’s website. Deposits are refundable only until September 20, 2018, after which they become non-refundable. Credit cards are accepted for online deposits only.
