Soft-Skills Building (Contemporary problem-solving)
Our Soft Skills workshops center on communication, critical thinking, and resilience, ensuring that students become curious, lifelong learners.
In this workshop, we engage in thought-provoking, contemporary discussions about local, national, and global politics, mass migration, economic shifts, injustice and inequality, regional conflict, and so much more.
Ideating & Building Projects
Students learn to practice self-awareness, define problems, ideate, overcome roadblocks, and create solvent projects that engage with crucial problems. Then, students learn how to create prototypes for digital or other projects, presenting their interfaces, interactions, and behaviors as closely as possible.
This bi-monthly project centers on films from around the globe. Together, we research, watch, discuss, and appreciate films that enrich our understanding of humanity and our global community.
Our Hard Skills workshops focus on modern skills, not old fashioned curricula. Students are tired of having 20th-century teachers educating 21st-century students.
