Continuing a beloved Nueva tradition, upper school students are engaged this week in Intersession, the time between semesters for interdisciplinary exploration with real-world experts. Students chose from a catalogue of over 150 seminars, intensives, activity sessions, and field trips offered during the week of January 3–10 in a wide range of topics extending beyond the usual academic disciplines. From "Making a Dinosaur" to "Cooking with Chef Robert," students enjoyed the transition into the new semester.

Check the January 17 issue of Nueva Digest for complete coverage of the 2018 Intersession.
