DISCOVER SUMMER ACADEMY IN 2020
The primary goal of Discover Summer Academy is to promote love of education and to welcome hundreds of high school students to the best week of their summer. However, in order to fulfil this calling even at times of the coronavirus pandemic, we have decided to make a few changes to this year’s sessions.
In regards to the international session of Discover Summer Academy, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend the participation of international students, tutors and organiser at the session. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience to those affected by this decision. We hope no global pandemic can break your love for Discover and that we will meet in better times for another Discover session.
Three sessions have been reorganised and they remain open for Czech and Slovak students, with a few courses offered in English! We invite you all to consult the Czech and Slovak website for more information.
Don’t ever let anything put down your inner flame and curiosity. Keep your spirits and hopes high and we will meet again soon. Full statement and more information here.
What is Discover
Discover is a week-long immersion into asking questions and answering them alongside a hundred interesting, bright and lovely people. You’ll choose two academic courses delivered at university level. It’s a great opportunity to try out medicine, machine learning or modern history under the guidance of brilliant tutors hailing from leading international and Czechoslovak universities. You’ll attend several elective workshops where you’ll learn how to set up a non-profit, how to stop procrastinating or why you should worry about overconsumption of antibiotics. We’ll think deeply and in dialogue with others who are just as invested. Discover will help you explore what you want to study in the future, what you can achieve and who you can become.
We are looking for you!
- If you like thinking about how the world works,
- If you prefer true understanding to simple memorizing of facts,
- If you’re ready to work on yourself.
