Polk County Students Build “SuperGizmos” with Ivy League Faculty at FSC
Two students from All Saints Academy at work, building their functioning net-shooter and glove controller.
For four weeks this summer, the Florida Southern campus became a laboratory for outstanding Polk County middle and high school students who engaged in an innovative learning experience. NuVu Studio of Cambridge, Mass., conducted an enhanced-learning program from June 11 to July 6 that allowed the students to work on projects employing concepts of math, computer programming, robotics, writing, and art. The program, a joint partnership between NuVu, All Saints Academy, and FSC, used a superhero theme and turned the students’ creativity loose.
