Written by Navid Nathoo, Executive Director and Co-founder of The Knowledge Society

Hey! I created this resource list to help kids (and adults!) continue learning while they’re at home. Over the next few weeks kids will be able to explore their full curiosities because they won’t be bound by the structure of school. This is a unique time. There are so many resources online with a plethora of valuable knowledge that can spark excitement and passion in people beyond traditional curriculums. I hope this guide provides a gateway to new knowledge and ideas that get young people excited!

Ps. I’ve filtered to resources I thought were high quality. There is a lot of stuff out there, so hopefully this doc helps you narrow down.

Tip: Schedule a block of time during the day to learn and explore new things. Be intentional about when you learn so you can get in the right mindset. I’d allocate 1-2 hour blocks when learning you can get lost in curiosity, and allocate 3-4 hour blocks when building so you can get into a flow state.

I hope that was helpful!

About me

I’m the Founder of The Knowledge Society. My life mission is to help young people unlock their full potential so they can make an impact to the world. I strongly believe that emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, gene editing, synthetic biology, and quantum computing are the tools that the next generation of scientists, innovators, and entrepreneurs will use to solve the world’s biggest problems. That’s why I created The Knowledge Society (TKS). We help driven and curious kids age 10-17 learn how to make an impact using emerging technologies, while also training their mindset and connecting them to a global community of like-minded people. Ok, enough self-talk. Enjoy the resources!
