Background Formal education does not prepare children adequately for the real world. Many tasks that were considered fairly complex (e.g. programming or reading X-rays ) are increasingly being performed by AI. This means that complex problem solving skills and social skills are more important today than ‘basic technical skills’.
GenWise is a group of expert mentors that works with children to develop foundational abilities like being able to ask good questions and answer questions by ‘thinking on their own’.
