In Synthesis, students learn how to become supercollaborators, the kind of people who can work together to solve our civilization’s most challenging problems.
Students become supercollaborators by practicing a number of critically important skills for life:
- Communicating effectively
- Solving problems
- Collaborating with a team
- Making sense of complexity
- Testing assumptions
- Adapting to fast-changing scenarios
To master these skills, Synthesis students work together with a team of peers to navigate simulations of complex problems, like managing complex supply chains, negotiating priorities, and colonizing space. They practice coming up with ideas, testing their hypotheses, organizing as a team, taking action, and pivoting their strategies as things change.
Synthesis helps students learn how to think, not what to think. We create an environment for kids to learn through self-driven discovery and reflection.
