Middle School Project Knowmad

Registration for Project Knowmad is now closed. If you wish to inquire about wait lists or if you have any other questions, please contact Program Director Georgia Tucker at gtucker@riverdale.edu.

Project Knowmad is an experiential learning program for students entering grades 5 to 12 that runs during the summer months, right after finals and before most other summer programs begin. Courses cover a variety of subjects, including computer science, filmmaking, drawing, writing, and culinary arts.

In Knowmad, students and teachers are out in the field exploring interesting ideas, meeting new people, visiting unusual locations, and working as a team. The activities are creative: writing code, taking photographs, making meals, writing scripts, designing and building original inventions. Students work with teachers in a new way, too: as collaborators looking for answers together. Small class sizes of six to 10 students offer individual instruction and promote sustained focus.

Project Knowmad offers innovative learning opportunities on the Riverdale campus, in New York City, and further afield.

From Citi Bikes to LinkNYC, new tech-based services are springing up across the city. Our students learned all about them in Codemad.

In 2019 Project Knowmad is offering 11 weeklong courses from June 10–28, 2019.
