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.
The big deal about Knowmad is that New York City is our classroom. 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 your own inventions. Students work with teachers in a new way, too: as collaborators looking for answers together. Small class sizes of six to 10 students offers individual instruction and promotes 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.
