Young Scholars at SMT

On Saturday, June 1, Young Scholars participated in Philosophy in Writing and Calculus programs. In the former, the students combined their passion for writing with a study of the discourses within texts including moral dilemmas, problematic scenarios and the philosophical issues throughout these. The focus was then, applying what they had discussed and implementing some of those themes into their own piece to discuss with the class. In the calculus workshop students were exposed to an academically rigorous program that took them from basic principles of calculus they had already learned to very complex calculations which mimic IB levels of mathematics.
