Nargish Khambatta, Principal, GEMS Modern Academy, said: “With the need to have an advanced program locally available, we urged EI to organise an academic winter camp at our school. The program modules have been well planned and the students attending will benefit from the opportunity to hone leadership qualities and develop advanced problem-solving skills. “Our courses are a reflection of current trends in the world and equip students so they can provide meaningful solutions to humanity’s needs today as well as start reflecting on the needs of tomorrow,” says Shekhar Hardikar, Academic Director of the programme.
