Bridge Week

Bridge Week is Jan 31, Feb 1, 4,  and 5. Also called Nova Con, this 4-day long series of workshops and classes hosted for the students of Nova High School. Nova Con happens twice a year, at the beginning of Fall and Spring semesters. During the first four days of each semester, students engage with workshops and community building events. Facilitators teach one-hour classes that allow teachers the time to meet individually with students to craft their unique educational experience. For Nova Con teaching details and a volunteer form, see the FoN Events page. Nova can’t provide this individual educational experience without the support of folks like you!  Can't take time to teacher? Consider providing fuel to teachers and students. Refreshment sign-up HERE.

Our alumni are making the news. Max Paradiso wrote an article recently about preserving the sound of the Stradivarius by quieting the town of Cremona, Italy. It was featured in the New York Times. Read about it here.
