GenWise Internship (Grades 11/12 only)

Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life.

Steve Jobs


May 14-28, 2023

Only for Students Moving to Grades 11 and 12 in 2023-24

Gifted Summer Program May 2023 is offering  a 2 week GenWise Internship. In this course, students finishing Grades 10 and 11 will be introduced to various opportunities and issues that need to be considered before embarking on their dream life journey.

At the start of the course, students will be required to express their areas of interest to enable us to plan and provide the relevant sessions. 

The general rule of thumb is 'Follow your passion'; we at Genwise believe that if one is pursuing a career as a form of self expression it replenishes you instead of draining you. Your own self expression via art, music, writing, creating and building things will make society and our world a better place to live in. 

We will do our best to facilitate every student in their journey of self expression. In this journey, students will undertake a project in one of the following 4 areas:

  • Computer & Information Sciences

  • Digital Media & Marketing

  • Life Sciences & Medicine

  • Design & Engineering

Students will be expected to work in teams, mentored by experts from industry and academia. 

Upon completion of the internship, all participants will get an Internship Certificate.
