As the NMH dance companies prep for their upcoming winter performance, "Amygdala," they got a crash course in zombie makeup from New York makeup artist Joe Dulude II, who visited campus with guest choreographer Lori Holmes Clark (who was in the original Broadway cast of "Wicked," among many other Broadway shows). Dulude designed the makeup for the Tony Award-winning hit musical "Wicked," among other Broadway productions. Clark has performed and choreographed in the U.S. and Europe, and currently teaches at Deerfield Academy. (Photo: Rachael Waring Fayroian)
This past weekend 15 NMH students committed their entire day (and night) to pushing their knowledge of coding and computer science from 5:30 am until 1:30 am. Gathering at the Google Cambridge office next to MIT the group, along with David Warren, joined nearly 350 other high school students to participate in MIT's Blueprint Hackathon. The Hackathon, led by MIT professors and students, is a 14-hour workshop devoted to developing apps for the web, iOS, or Android.
