Young Technology Scholars - Over the years
In June 2018 and 2019, the YTS summer program was held at Pathways World School, Aravali. The students showcased live demonstrations of their projects at the end of the two-week program. The program calendar was replete with interactive sessions such as the Mentorship Panel and Guest Lectures along with exciting activities.
The new format
In the year 2020, YTS moved online due to the covid-19 pandemic. True to its spirit, YTS continues to focus on offering a unique experience to students centered around projects that have real-world relevance. Full scholarships have always been offered to deserving students on a need basis.
The YTS Experience
The Young Technology Scholars program is a first step towards reimagining the way technology education is imparted and applied to the real world. YTS 2020 allowed and will continue to help students to visualize sciences as a comprehensive integration of engineering and technology to solve challenging problems. The engaging curriculum provided a nurturing environment for creativity, imagination, and collaboration while stimulating scientific reasoning. Our hope is that the authenticity of this experience will spark in them, both a love for technology, as well as the ambition to use it to solve real-world, human problems.
