The Knowledge Society partners with Carrot to identify high calibre applicants.
Carrot wants to get all students excited to pursue STEAM fields– not just a few traditionally drawn to it. How? By pioneering “experiential innovation” through our world-class Challenges, Conferences, Tours, and eSports Tournaments, each designed to apply students’ technical skills while reinforcing 21st-century skills like collaboration, critical thinking, digital literacy, and storytelling.
Students who want to take their interest to the next level with a longer-term program will be recommended to apply to The Knowledge Society’s 10-month accelerator program. The Knowledge Society trains students to develop the skills, mindsets and networks to develop into world-class leaders the way that Olympic level training prepares world-class athletes.
Students who win Carrot’s Innovation Challenges will be fast-tracked through The Knowledge Society’s application process. The Knowledge Society and Carrot have a few things in common. The most important is that they both hope to accelerate innovation and leadership in high schools around North America.
“Working with an organization like Carrot who can help to encourage more students to think differently about innovation and learning will ensure that we reach the types of future leaders we want to join The Knowledge Society’s programs.” – Nadeem Nathoo, Executive Director of TKS,
