Course List: Genesis 2022

We have 3 exciting and inspiring 1-week courses this Summer for the curious student. We strongly recommend children pick all 3 courses to get the most out of this Residential experience!

 

Our Residential Programs are immersive experiences - much more than just the academic enrichment component that this page focuses on. Please review The Nature of Activities in GenWise Programs, where we discuss 'hands-on work and play' and 'socio-emotional learning', in addition to 'academic enrichment'.

 

Each of these courses has been designed to provide children an opportunity to develop and hone their critical thinking and communication skills, reasoning, hypothesis formulation and testing, and the exciting domain of culinary science!

Become familiar with the reasoning process employed not just by detectives, but also by doctors, lawyers, historians, archaeologists, and virtually every domain where one is trying to piece together the full picture, from available clues.

Molecular Gastronomy: Intro to Culinary Science

Start Date:

15-May-22

Duration:

1 Week

Cooking has always been thought of as an art to be perfected by practice rather than a science. The course emphasizes the role of sciences in cooking and how the world over, it has started to make a difference if the chefs understand the science that goes into it. The session offers a small glimpse into some of the notions that support this and how knowing science will make you a responsible modern chef, through actual demonstrations.

Experiment Design for Critical Thinkers

Start Date:

22-May-22

Duration:

1 Week

Appreciate the importance of Experiment Design in exploring answers to relevant questions, whatever the domain (Economics, Engineering, Psychology, Marketing, Materials Science, Medicine, etc.). Often not taught formally at school (or even at College level), learn the vital skills necessary for understanding the role of variables, apples-to-apples comparisons, the role of bias, and how to attempt to overcome bias.
