Spark Your Creativity

The NuVuX Innovation Camp for Educators (NICE) introduces participants to NuVu’s design process. In this camp, you will tap into your innate creativity and gain first hand experience in the collaborative studio environment. You’ll learn how to use a studio framework to develop your problem solving skills and integrate this creative mindset within your school.

Our Innovation Camp is specifically geared toward K-12 educators, including teachers, innovation directors, STEM/STEAM coaches, technology coordinators, R&D directors, department heads, and administrators. We encourage schools to organize small teams to participate in the Camp for maximum effectiveness. Our hands-on Innovation Camp enables participants to discover new ways of bringing creative and real world problem solving into their schools.

Our Model

Our studio-based learning model comes from NuVu, an innovation school for middle and high school students whose pedagogy is based on the architectural studio model in which students learn through hands-on collaborative projects.

While at NuVu, students engage in a rigorous design process that includes brainstorming, prototyping, iteration and review, all the while working collaboratively to solve complex real-world problems. NuVu’s studio model promotes creativity, critical thinking and innovation skills.

NuVuX connects this pedagogy with schools and organizations across the globe, through studio curriculum, professional development, expert teachers and other resources.
