Course List: GenWise Summer 2022

We have 8 exciting courses this Summer - three 3-week courses, one 2-week and four 1-week courses. The full schedule can be viewed here. We strongly recommend children pick a course for each of the 3 weeks of the program 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, and gain exposure to domains like economics, forensic science, mathematics, self-awareness, leadership, physics, design & engineering, artificial intelligence and machine learning. 

All these courses are by invitation only, and available for Ei-ATS Gold/ Silver/ Bronze Scholars. If you do not have an Ei ATS score, and would like to attend this program, please contact us to determine eligibility.
