Beaver Country Day School invites interested educators to learn more about the NuVu Studio program, a new educational program developed in partnership with doctoral students and professors from MIT and Harvard. NuVu is an innovation center for middle and high school students whose pedagogy is based on the studio model and geared around multi-disciplinary, collaborative projects. NuVu nurtures creative problem-solving, collaboration, and presentation skills, all critical for student success. The NuVu program has been piloted and launched in partnership with Beaver Country Day School, and we are ecstatic with the results and with the unique opportunity our students have to work on a daily basis with PhDs from MIT and Harvard as well as other experts from a diverse range of fields. Conceived as a magnet innovation center, NuVu is giving students the opportunity to work collaboratively with other students and PhDs on the campus of MIT.
This special event will include a session focused on exploring how the NuVu program can be applied to your schools--with highlights from Beaver's experience integrating NuVu into the existing curriculum.
Keynote Speaker: Harry West, CEO, Design Continuum, world-renowned expert in innovation
