Learning Events

With more than 40 modules to explore a variety of emerging sciences and technologies, students get involved in a focused area to develop meaningful projects with the guidance of experienced industry mentors.

The virtual learning program provides students with the resources they need to set up a project themselves by following a project-based learning approach. Participants get to create articles and multimedia resources to support their research, interview researchers in their field and build algorithms and computer projects.

Virtual sessions run through Zoom and Slack, and the internship opportunities are fully remote.

In-person programs include access to in-person events and office tours as well. The program includes 4 types of interactive sessions which are related to tech/ science, challenges, hackathons, and philosophy, and personal growth. Within these sessions, you'll find group discussions, hands-on and research activities, and presentations. Sessions are hosted at different times throughout the week and are designed to fit into the students' interests and personality types.
