Young people with the education system today have become spectators rather than participants in their own ‘learning futures’. This is done, for instance by overwhelming them with the subject – facts and figures which they memorize for tests and exams and soon forget after the fact! It should be argued that real education must help create a creative and critical mind by empowering the learner to take charge of his/her education. Subjects and Topics are mere tools to nurture this new independent thinking mind. Thus any subject in science or arts is able to create this ultimate goal if ‘delivered’ properly.
We hope to use this camp to inculcate and introduce the concept of thinking creatively and critically when making choices in their lives. Both methods of logic and empirical reasoning will be introduced with simple lectures and fun activities. Also competitive and collaborative methods of producing an outcome will be explored by the participants. We will charge the participants a minimal to cover some of the cost of the program. However, if funds permit, we will also provide scholarships to deserving students.
