The Future Genius Difference

With a focus on personal development—not just academic achievement — Future Genius summer programs build confidence and initiate exciting ideas for making a difference. Through a learning-by-designing approach, our programs prepare students to apply social readiness and technical ingenuity over a week of fun, collaborative challenges.

More than the sum of its parts, Future Genius offers a place where young learners come together with a shared mission to better themselves and the world around them. Students create a community where a sense of belonging and shared enthusiasm fuels a meaningful exploration of sustainability science.

A week at Future Genius provides a unique launch pad to become a successful contributor in the 21st century.
