Thank you to the National Organization of Minority Architects Students of Tulane University for hosting some of our students for a day focused on design and architecture.
Students spent the morning learning about site analysis and drawing to scale, and creating an original design for a pavilion on Tulane’s campus. In the afternoon they had the chance to build a physical model of their design. They also toured the architecture building and heard several guest speakers talk about the architecture profession and how design is apparent in our everyday lives.
NOMAS-TU will likely hold a similar event next year, and we hope even more students will join! If you are interested, check out Project Pipeline, a workshop held during the summer for high school students interested in architecture and design.

Last Saturday, juniors and seniors were invited to a day long workshop with Mastery Prep to help get ready for the ACT. They learned timing strategies as well as tips and content review in English, Math, Reading, and Science. Students were overwhelmingly positive about their experience. We’re so proud of you and we know that you’ll do great on your March ACT!
For those of you who missed it, we will have another ACT Boot Camp on APRIL 7th. It will be an extended Saturday session at UNO (9am-3pm) with a lunch break in the middle and buses home at the end of the day. In the meantime, here are some tips to get you started: English Tips & Math Tips
WOW look at these amazing hats! We had a blast creating art and fashion with you all last weekend. And a big thank you to Peri Levine (pictured in center) for teaching us about your designs. For anyone who missed it, Peri started her own business selling her hats in high school, and went on to receive a full-ride scholarship to Tulane. Looking forward to more hat making in the near future!
