The world’s 1st program to develop FutureAchievers by building children’s curiosity and effort levels.

Curiosity + Effort rival IQ in driving academic success.

All the science shows that curiosity and effort are key to achieving academic success. In fact, neuroscience shows that putting in greater effort in challenging tasks grows children’s intelligence. That’s why we use evidence-based, proven techniques to drive children’s curiosity and effort levels and help them become high achievers.

FutureAchievers for Grade 3-9 students is designed to spark children’s curiosity, identify their interests, direct their curiosity effectively, teach them to value effort and enable parents to build these traits in their children.

Our Program Develops Curiosity by

Sparking Children’s Curiosity

Using 4 proven techniques, we spark children’s interest in the world around them. With fun, interesting case studies of other students we inspire children to become curious.

Identifying Children’s Interests

Through open-ended and directed questions, we analyze children’s responses to identify their interests. We show children how their diverse interests can be weaved together in exciting ways.

Developing Tinkering Projects

We design different tinkering projects, based on students interests to help them explore their curiosity and learn what it means to set goals, create a plan, seek feedback and overcome roadblocks.

Teaching Self-Reflection

We teach children to self-reflect on what they liked, disliked, what worked for them and where they need more help. This empowers children to make choices, build confidence and see problems and failures as surmountable.

Our Program Builds Children’s Effort Levels

Identifying & reframing children’s misbeliefs about intelligence and learning

We identify these children’s misbeliefs like ‘talent is innate’ and ‘success should come to us easily if we are talented’. We show children why they aren’t true and help to the frame beliefs that will drive effort and perseverance.

Identifying & reframing children’s explanatory style

We all sometimes explain good and bad events in ways that limits us. ‘Nobody likes me’. ‘I never win’. ‘It was sheer luck that I did well’. We work with children to identify limiting explanations and reframe them so they can achieve limitless growth. We also teach children to identify and manage their emotions since anxiety goes hand-in-hand with taking on new challenges.

Our Program Enables Parents by

  • Helping them to discover what their children are curious about and encourage their children to sustain their curiosity.
  • Enabling them to build their children’s mindsets to seek challenging work, and sustain effort when they fail.
  • Showing them how to direct their children’s curiosity meaningfully, so it can turn into a passion or purpose or career – or all three.
  • Identifying and avoiding unhealthy feedback loops
  • Designing rewards and feedback to encourage effort
