PUBLIC SPEAKING


Public speaking is the process of communicating information to a large number of people. It is one of the most important and most dreaded forms of communication. However, mastering this essential skill can help kids to gain self-confidence and convey messages effectively.




TEAMWORK


Teamwork is crucial in many settings but is sometimes a hard skill to learn. It requires collaborative effort to achieve a common goal and using people’s strengths to get there. Everyone is unique: some people are shy, some people are loud; some people are mathematical and some are artistic. Teamwork is about utilizing that uniqueness to work together and build something great.




BRAINSTORMING


Students will be asked to consider the resources available to them and brainstorm creative ideas in a short period of time. We will be using mind-mapping strategies to generate as many ideas as possible, and teach methods to narrow down the ideas to the best and most feasible option.




INNOVATION


Innovation teaches kids to be more creative and sharpens their minds. By exposing students to various technologies, and engaging them in a variety of individual and team projects, they learn to think outside the box.
