On February 21st, we had a guest speaker Amiee Watts, representing the Scholars Cup that brings together over 20,000 students in 50 countries every year. Our goal: to inspire in young people of all backgrounds a love of learning, a confidence in new skills, and a sense of global citizenship.
Teams of students will participate in four events: Team Debate, Collaborative Writing, Scholar’s Challenge, and Scholar’s Bowl. Topics of exploration, from moonshot technology to the science (and art) of prediction, will be drawn from this year’s World Scholar’s Cup theme, An Unlikely World.
Scholars will have the chance to qualify for the 2017 Global Rounds in Hanoi, Athens, and Cape Town, and, in due course, for the annual Tournament of Champions at Yale University in the United States.
This year we will have teams of students representing Niva International School. Go Niva Go!
