How do schools partner with us?

NuVu's model allows schools to quickly and effectively plug into our program as a resource for students to develop essential 21st century skills,  for teachers to learn how to incorporate these skills into their classrooms, and for administrators to launch innovation labs or makerspaces in their schools. Schools partner with us via two main routes:

1. Term/Semester Away Program
Schools from around the Boston/Cambridge area (as well as schools located outside the area) can partner with us through our Term/Semester Away Program. Through this route, partner schools send a group of students to NuVu for a full term or semester during the academic year. Immersed full-time from 9am-3pm, Monday through Friday, students have an opportunity to delve into real world topics and grow as designers. Students connect with experts (we call them "Coaches") in an environment that fosters a holistic design approach. Working within NuVu's studio model, students synthesize ideas, core subjects, skills, technology, and entrepreneurship, while designing solutions to real-world, complex challenges. After having gone through an intensive and enriching creative experience at NuVu, students return to their schools and life with the creative confidence to bring their ideas and skills to their continued learning.



Are you interested in partnering with us?

If you are interested in partnering with us, please contact us at nuvu@nuvustudio.org with "Partnership Interest" in the subject line. Please include details about your school and any ideas you may have about how we can collaborate in the email body.
