The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
In this fast-paced era of new discoveries, concepts, and inventions, modern education has become indispensable. Internet, smart classes and the ever-evolving technology has revolutionized the process of imparting knowledge through learning. Today, there is so much happening in the education sphere, whether it is the discoveries in science or the evolution in technology and culture, the inter-country tours like the NASA trips or the community development programs, students are swimming in an ocean of information.
With so much to learn, there is a greater need for a holistic education system such that students continue to learn with a sense of wonder and curiosity. Atlantis understands this goal of education and takes a holistic approach to its path-breaking programs. Our educational tours like the NASA trips or the UK, Europe based trips, thrive to be different. Students not only visit different destinations but experience them by being a part of that system.
One of the key roles of education is developing the minds of people and to gain a bigger understanding of the world- an understanding of the science, nature, arts, cultures, and places. Our travel programs are designed to educate through experience. The US-based programs offer various travel plans including the NASA trips. During these NASA trips, students not only interact with the scientists but also go through hands-on workshops on Robotics, Rocketry or Near Space Investigation. These form the core of the SpaceTrek program at KSC during the NASA trips. Our programs offer the best of learning experiences, be it an adventurous trip to Australia and New Zealand, Literature & Arts trip to the UK, Geography & Geology trip to Europe or Africa. The visits to important landmarks, be it the world-famous CERN, various other museums of Art and History, factories like the BMW or the Stettler chocolate factory, the university campuses or the labs, our programs closely link learning with nature and with life, and not just confined to walls of a classroom.
Today Science has explored every aspect of life. Our Science Programs enable students to be in close connection with the real world through our hands-on approach. We make sure they think out of the book. Using state of the art technology, we empower students to ‘observe, think, question, do and analyze’ rather than stuffing them with information. As such, skill development is a by-product of our workshops.
In the global era of interconnected nations and the society, it is very important that students have a sense of connection and apathy for the world we live in. Working in close connection with the community, our students develop into educated beings of intelligence and character, indeed!
