How many instructors will there be?2022-01-04T17:40:45-05:00

We aim for a student-to-instructor ratio of 6:1. Future Genius programs are managed by a Lead Instructor, who is a dedicated local educator with a passion for sustainability, technology, and future literacy. They are responsible for demonstration and guidance of camp curriculum, including digital media production, leadership training, team-building, and other problem-solving activities. Lead Instructors are assisted by inspired Junior Instructors—high school-age role models wired for igniting positive change.
