Expanse Summer 2021 is an all-virtual interdisciplinary exploration into one of six subjects. The program is broken up into two three-week sessions, and parents may choose one or both sessions.
Each day, the first two hours consist of Expanse’s magnificent Socratic discussions where students grapple deeply with a given subject among their peers and with themselves. Our program Guides select challenging texts and facilitate valuable conversations by suggesting provocative questions. What follows is an amazing bonding process among classmates as they individually develop critical thinking and decision-making skills.
Following morning Socratic discussions, the next two hours are a sprint through a particular skill that each student selects. Specifically, we offer the opportunity to develop a skill in:
By the end of the program, students will have completed a project they can use to jumpstart their passion in that field.
Classes are Monday through Friday, from 10 AM CT to 3 PM CT, with a one-hour break for lunch. Students will be given channels to connect with one another, and other Expanse Summer participants, in perpetuity through an Expanse-sponsored Slack channel.
We’re ready to find your student’s genius and crank it up!
