Program and Courses

What courses are being offered?

The YTS program is an interdisciplinary and experiential summer program. Whether your curiosity lies in Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality or Biological Systems- this program will help you explore the nuances of technology and examine the frameworks that will help solve global challenges. From Robotics to healthcare to sustainability, you will build, simulate and explore the behaviour of everything you create.

How will the program cater to the diverse age group and subject knowledge?

Our program is consciously designed to be age-agnostic. It is designed for curious students who are intrigued by technology and passionate about learning. No prerequisite course material is required for either class. The courses are designed to be appealing and beneficial to students, regardless of their background knowledge.

How are the courses interdisciplinary, hands-on and catered to solving real-world problems?

In every way! We started off this summer program with the goal to make technology and engineering education relevant and fun to high schoolers. Rather than pick up and deliver existing content, we have carefully designed and crafted courses accordingly. Rather than go in-depth in a single subject, each course bridges content across multiple engineering and non-engineering disciplines; classes will be more doing, and less lecture; students will choose a real-world problem they want to solve (ex: how should we prevent a global epidemic from spreading?) that they will model and build out themselves.

Are 2 to 3 weeks enough?

YES! Two to three weeks is enough time to give students not only a flavour of real-world problem solving but also leave them with a mindset that will serve them for life. Because the program is currently online due to the pandemic, students will be fully immersed from day 1 which doubles their learning speed. They’ll learn not only through classes but through rich interactions with their peers through structured and open activities specially curated for the online program.

How do the courses fit in with the school curriculum?

YTS is intended to supplement the school curriculum, not replace it. It is designed to fill gaps that exist in current academia and prepare students to solve open-ended problems in teams.

Are students expected to prepare for this summer program?

No! Please don’t study for this program. Everything you need to know will be taught during the program - there is no preparation required.

Is the program online?

Our students’ safety is our utmost priority. With the current COVID-19 pandemic engulfing the world, we have decided to move our residential Young Technology Scholars to an online format for 2021. YTS 2020 also happened online and was a huge success. True to its spirit, YTS will continue to focus on offering a unique experience to students centered around projects that have real-world relevance. Only the students that pursue the online curriculum will have the opportunity to apply for the in-person program this year, if it happens.

Is this program only intended for students interested in pursuing science, engineering, and mathematics?

Not at all! This program is open to everyone, as long as you are interested in solving real-world problems using technology. We want to inspire more young minds around technology. Even if you haven’t chosen science, if YTS intrigues you, apply and get a taste of how exciting technology education can be.
