Young Technology Scholars (YTS) – Interdisciplinary Summer Program on Technology Education
In my previous article, we discussed the summer school programs on AI and Robotics for high school students. As you can see, there is only one summer program from India in that list – Young Technology Scholars (YTS).
YTS is a 2-week residential summer program aimed at the high school students from Grade 9 – 11. It’s a great summer school program for the kids interested in Robotics, Data Sciences, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Biological Systems. The program is open to everyone, including students from arts and commerce streams.
With interactive seminars and hands-on projects, students will learn the fundamentals of computation, hardware interfaces, biosensing, and programming; and more importantly, how to solve the challenges of the future.
In this program, Nainy Katyal from the outreach and communications team of Young Technology Scholars (YTS) will talk about the program in details.

The Young Technology Scholars program breaks all conventions in the way technology education is imparted to students across the country. With its first cohort of 50 students, YTS 2018 pushed boundaries – creating an engineering mindset where students built socially significant tools and technology – all in a span of two weeks.
In the wake of the program’s success in 2018, the 2019 edition is already seeing a rush of applications. If you want to go through a unique learning experience like none before and have the slightest love for technology, we highly recommend you take a look at this program.
What is YTS?
Young Technology Scholars (YTS) is a 2-week residential summer program launched in June 2018. The program is open for high schoolers from Grades 9-11. The aim is to expose students to real-world engineering and problem solving through hands-on learning and interdisciplinary coursework.
The program curriculum has been designed by senior faculty from leading universities of the world, in collaboration with alumni from top institutes like Stanford, UC Berkeley, HBS, IITs, and the IIMs.
What does the Program offer?
Whether your curiosity lies in Robotics, Biological Systems or Data Sciences – this program will help you explore the nuances of engineering and examine the frameworks that help solve global challenges. From artificial intelligence to healthcare to sustainability, you will build, simulate and explore the behavior of everything you create.
With interactive seminars and hands-on projects, you will learn the fundamentals of computation, hardware interfaces, biosensing, and programming. Immerse yourself in learning how to solve the challenges of the future.
Be a part of the next Technology Revolution.
