Mindy’s Field Trip with Robert On Thursday, Robert and Mindy traveled to Cambridge, MA to tour and visit with the Founder of NuVu Studio. NuVu is an educational facility for high school students (Check out their website! https://cambridge.nuvustudio.com) Talk about an amazing “vision” for me, as this school shows what the dynamics of learning looks like for students who are preparing for their futures in the most exciting ways! Looking forward to talking to you all about it, as we create a similar environment here in Hampstead! I’m so thrilled to be taking on the job of creating the vision of entrepreneurial new school education!
