The 'academic' component of the EE Program covers multiple pillars of the GenWise Curriculum. These curricular elements will be covered over 2 weeks (4-5 hrs/ day), as follows:
Week 1: Mathematics, Science, Design and Technology (STEM Focus)
Week 2: Nature, Society &Individual; Tools for Thinking & Communication (Humanities Focus)
Please click on each week to know (MUCH) more...
While children are free to pick either week, we strongly recommend a balanced exposure to the content over both weeks.
Sugat is a doctoral researcher in the Learning Sciences program at Northwestern University, USA. His work involves designing technology-enhanced learning environments to enable scientific thinking, computational thinking, and complex systems thinking. Over the past three years, Sugat has developed several computational agent-based models, many of which have been incorporated into curricular units for high school students. The curricular units he has authored have been used in school settings in the US as well as in India. He has presented his work in several highly prestigious international conferences and co-authored several peer-reviewed journal publications.
Prior to starting his Ph.D. in educational research, Sugat was first a biology researcher and then a science content developer for a multi-national organization in India.
At GenWise Online, Sugat facilitates courses around Computational Modeling in the Natural and Social Sciences.
