The Endless Futures and Human Limitations Summer School

02 april 2023

The School of Advanced Studies (SAS) welcomes 9th and 10th-grade students to join the Endless Futures and Human Limitations Summer School from June 19 to 23, 2023.

We are usually trapped in patterns. We eat the same thing everyday, listen to the same music, watch the same sitcoms, and spend time with the same people. It is convenient. It is a headache-free life. Why do humans break their habits, experiment, and explore the unknown? Why bother? While it might be challenging to do something new, experimenting might be the very human feature about us. This year’s Summer School will focus on your ability to innovate, explore, investigate, and foresee the future.

Participating in a Summer School taught by SAS professors provides a unique and memorable educational experience for high school students. They can gain exposure to different teaching styles and cultural perspectives. This can broaden their horizons, enrich their learning, and prepare them for success in a rapidly changing world.

The Summer School is an endeavor for high school students to experience a world-class educational institution and to hone their English language skills. The participants will be able to try out a variety of educational formats that approach the school’s theme from different vantage points. These formats include seminars, workshops, project work, discussions, film screening, and finally, creative games.

Topics will include:

- Art: Pushing the Boundaries of Creativity

- Culture: Exploring Identity, Belonging, and Diversity

- Sociology: Investigating Social Behavior and Change

- AI and Ethics: Experimenting with New Models of Governance and Responsibility

- Behavioral Economics: Experimenting with the Psychology of Decision-Making
