Young Scholars Programme- Computer Science
Explore, experience, and engage with cutting edge developments in the field of Computer Science
Ashoka Young Scholars Programme is excited to introduce a new programme this year! The Young Scholars Programme- Computer Science (YSP-CS) is a certified, 5- day, residential programme designed for students in grades 9,10,11 & 12 interested in the field of computer science and its allied disciplines. YSP-CS provides students a deeper and wider exposure to the discipline in line with Ashoka’s multidisciplinary approach to higher education. Taught by a globally renowned & experienced faculty (details below), the programme is designed to inspire, motivate and prepare students for higher studies, whether at the senior secondary school or college level or even for life beyond. Given the foundational nature of computer science today across fields of study and in our daily lives, the programme is equally relevant for students who may pursue other disciplines but seek a better understanding of cutting-edge technologies that are transforming the future. The programme does not require students to have any prior CS experience.
Join us for a transformative journey of the mind as we delve deeper into broad and complex questions such as– What computer science is? What role does it play in the development of our society? How are systems such as ChatGPT, DALLE 2 impacting the world? What are the main ethical questions that the field is currently grappling with? Not only will we delve deep into core aspects of computer science, but we will also explore bridges into other subjects, ranging from philosophy to psychology, to environmental science, and more.
Students will get a holistic view of groundbreaking developments in computer science, engage in stimulating discussions on applications to real-world problems and exposure to hands-on MakerSpace sessions & tutorials on 3D printing, designing and building cyber-physical objects, and much more. All YSP programmes are designed to develop well-rounded students, who are better prepared for subject choices, college and life beyond offering not only academic but also cultural, sports and social enrichment, all part of a wholesome college experience.
