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.
Course List: Winter 2021
We have 4 exciting courses this December - 2 each, across 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', '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, neuroscience, and physics.
One course in each week is designated "Advanced", and open for Ei Asset Talent Search Gold/ Silver/ Bronze Scholars. If you do not have an Ei ATS score, and would like to attend an "Advanced" course, please contact us to determine eligibility.
Each of the courses below runs for 1 week from the Start Date indicated. We strongly recommend children pick a course for each of the 2 weeks of the program to get the most out of this Residential experience!
