This year's theme, overcoming adversity, revolves around the concept of resilience. During the launch, students were introduced to four dimensions of resilience which include, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual resilience. Through the use of videos, Kahoot, inspirational posters, and personal experience, students left the two hour session with quite a grasp of the concept.
As PKP Young Scholars, students will research and interact with the theme throughout the year. Each GATE class will intertwine class lessons with the theme of overcoming adversity through resilience. As the year culminates, students will write article reviews, create a technology piece incorporating the theme, present their findings to a panel of judges, and participate in a Socratic Seminar to showcase their understanding.
Good luck to all the scholars that have embarked on this journey. May your minds be filled with knowledge, may your hearts be filled with empathy, and may your hands reach out to others. Together, we will achieve, succeed, and overcome.
So proud of these young minds,
