A key building block is the “spirit of scientific inquiry” not just at the level of academia and research but also at the level of students and interested common citizens all over the country.
The ‘spirit of scientific inquiry’ is developed not through rote learning or ‘passive observation’ of a visually appealing show, but through […]Continue Reading →
If we offer broad clusters, it is about looking at options and selecting from them.

The purpose of i-become is to envision the future of students more creatively, more effectively, and more realistically.
