About Young Thinkers' Program

Young Thinkers is a unique and effective Program in which you skillfully improve your Critical and Creative Thinking. This Program helps you to develop:

  • Judgments for making decisions
  • Skills to distinguish between facts, myths and opinions
  • Ideas for problem solving
  • Creative thinking which leads to unmet needs or better solutions
  • A challenging and curious mindset
  • Self esteem and skills as a learner and thinker
  • The ability to succeed at school and at university studies

Everyone thinks. But not everyone thinks well. One of the greatest skills you can learn is the ability to be a smarter, independent thinker. Young Thinkers’ Program consists of a wide range of INTERACTIVE CARTOON STORIES. The stories contain engaging questions that stimulate and develop CRITICAL and CREATIVE thinking. These carefully designed, multiple answer questions challenge you to think up you own ideas, judgments, and reasons. You’ll receive expert and instant feedback that enables you to receive a score for each question. You can even plot your improvement and eventually challenge the creators of the Program!

Creative Thinking is how we imagine possibilities which lead to new solutions or better products. Creativity is imagination made real.
Critical Thinking is how we use relevant criteria to make judgments about information.
