While children are free to pick either week, we strongly recommend a balanced exposure to the content over both weeks.
List of Modules: Gifted Jr - May 2023
We have 3 exciting modules this Summer for our Ei ATS Gold/ Silver/ Bronze Scholars - across 2 weeks. All participants will attend all modules, over the 2 weeks.
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 modules has been designed to provide children an opportunity to develop and hone their critical thinking and communication skills, and gain exposure to domains like mathematics, the scientific method, communication/writing, economics and sociology.
