TKS will transform you.

When students enter the program, they have little knowledge in these areas. They aren't super geniuses. We train them.

Solving Climate Change

Isabella, Liam, and Brianna - TKS Alumni - spoke at the world's largest technology conference, Websummit, which was held in Portugal. In their talk, they break down the problem of climate change, and give tangible solutions on how to solve the problem. Their vision is to use emerging technologies to advance our understanding of methods that we can use as a global society to minimize carbon emissions and limit greenhouse gases. Before joining TKS, they didn't know anything about this topic,

Not Impossible Award Winner

Talha, Vishanth, and Thayallan - TKS Alumni - were the winners of the Not Impossible Connectivity Award. Hotspot is on a mission to onboard the 3.9 billion people who don't have access to the internet. The long-term goal for Hotspot is to use blockchain to create a decentralized peer-to-peer internet which can be implemented with minimum centralized infrastructure and give everyone on earth a higher quality of life by making network access easy and accessible to all.

Meet our Alumni

Tommy Moffat, TKS Alumnus, Junior Quantum Engineer at Rigetti

“My goal is to help solve some of the world’s biggest problems. Quantum computing and machine learning are expected to change the world in the next decade – so I've decided to defer my $100,000 entrance scholarship to the University of Toronto to work with some of the most cutting-edge researchers at Rigetti in Berkeley, California. I can’t wait to bring back what I learn at Rigetti to my studies."

Ivy Deng, TKS Alumnus, Student at University of Pennsylvania

“I got into Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania – and I know it’s because of what I learned at TKS. In my UPenn essay, I talked about cellular agriculture and the life tips I learned through TKS. The things I learned at TKS were invaluable — thank you for creating it.”

William Blair, TKS Alumnus, Student at Johns Hopkins University

"Through TKS, I started a company to develop a pacemaker capable of harnessing the body's thermal energy. I continued my work at several startup incubators in Toronto and received over $50,000 in funding for my project. TKS also helped me realize my passion for combining neuroscience and genetics, leading me to pursue research in these areas at the graduate level. The knowledge, experiences, and achievements I gained at TKS were invaluable in my admission to Johns Hopkins University, and I continue to be driven by the passion for research and innovation I cultivated at TKS."
