Art Now

Presentation Day!

Our time at NuVu Studios MIT came to an end today with the final day of classes and project presentations. It was wonderful to see the end results of all the hard work our students have put in over the last two weeks.

After class, we headed out to the Museum of Science as our last evening activity. Everyone especially enjoyed the interactive exhibits in the “Theater of Electricity” and optical illusions at “Seeing is Deceiving.”

And of course we had to make one last stop at another ice cream shop on our way back home! This time it was Toscanini’s, a well-known spot in Cambridge and winner of many Best Ice Cream in Boston awards.

Now we’re back at the residence, packing our bags and preparing for some difficult goodbyes tomorrow!

Sunset Cruise

What a day here at MIT! After another wonderful day of classes we headed to Boston Harbor for a sunset cruise. Even though we had experienced some clouds and rain earlier in the day, it made for the most beautiful sunset! We finished with some yummy ice cream and pizza back at Harvard Square. Just two days left here at MIT and they’re gonna be great!

Tuesday was a Homerun

After another great day of classes we headed to the iconic Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox take on the Rays! It wouldn’t be a Red Sox game without lemonade, Peanuts and Cracker Jack! It truly was an all American summer evening at Summerfuel MIT!  

Our last week is off to a great start!

Today was a great Monday here at MIT. We started our second week of classes and then headed to the Prudential Center for some shopping. One student was even brave enough to head up 50 floors to the Skywalk Observatory to view the sunset over Boston. Another student made a quick trip to Italy (photo below) for some watermelon, don’t worry though – she made it back for check in and shared her treat with the group. This week is turning out to be lots of fun – stay tuned 🙂

Our Trip to the Moon

Summerfuel MIT students have made it back to earth safely after an out of this world visit to the moon on Sunday!

Sundays are best spent Exploring Boston

Sunday was a great day here at MIT. We started the day on the moon, okay not literally – we did visit the MIT Hack the Moon exhibit which was super cool. After coming back to earth we headed to Quincy Market for lunch before hopping on a boat and visiting the Bunker Hill Monument. We even enjoyed the classic American summer treats – Slurpees from 7/11! After coming back to campus for yummy burritos in the dining hall we headed out to Harvard Square for ice cream and a CVS run!

Saturdays are for Shopping

Today we all hopped in a Lyft and headed to the CambridgeSide Mall.While there we enjoyed shopping and some yummy white hot chocolate! In the evening we met up with Summerfuel Tufts for soccer, karaoke and breakfast (for dinner)! It was a fun evening filled with reunions of friends, musical performances and requests to visit again!

Fun Friday

Friday was another great day here at MIT. The students enjoyed their classes, even though they seemed to wear them out! Once home we had a fun (student-requested) movie night in the lounge – made complete with the famous Junior’s Cheesecake! Thanks, Max (and Max’s mom)!
