Renbrook Welcomes Nirvan Mullick on Oct. 26th

“For three years, Renbrook has taken part in the Global Cardboard Challenge. The benefits of participating in this activity are many. Children develop confidence and resourcefulness as they learn from others, they learn to think with their hands, and they learn persistence-they don’t give up easily. Witnessing the joy, excitement, and camaraderie as the children create their cardboard structures is thrilling. We are beyond excited to welcome the man who started it all, Nirvan Mullick, to our campus on October 26th and we are grateful to Berkshire Bank for funding the first of a 3-year Maker Forum. Beginning this year and for the next two, Renbrook will host a leader in the maker movement,” says Betsy Flynn, Lower School Learning Specialist at Renbrook School.
