Arizona State University Partners with BrainGain Magazine to Launch Robotics & Invention Summer Programs for High School Students


New Delhi: Ranked #1 in the U.S. for innovation, dedicated to accessibility and excellence, Arizona State University (ASU), has launched ASU’s Master Learners Academy for international high school students aged 15-18 years. ASU has partnered with BrainGain Magazine, the world’s leading higher education and study abroad magazine, to invite applications for two separate programs that they have launched this year – The Art of Invention Summer Program which will take place from June 2 – June 12, 2018 and the Robotics and Technology Summer Program which will take place from July 7 – July 17, 2018. Both programs will be located on the Tempe campus near Phoenix, Arizona. Seats are filling up fast, so students are encouraged to apply early. Students who get accepted and attend the summer program will get a $2000 scholarship when they apply for an undergraduate course in Arizona State University. The deadline for accepting applications for the ASU’s Master Learners Academy is May 15, 2018.

The Art of Invention Summer Program provides students a platform to create, try and imagine new ideas in unique week-long summer sessions. Students are introduced to building and prototyping using low-fidelity to rapid prototyping tools to make their ideas real. The Robotic and Technology Summer Program is designed for students entering high school grades 9, 10, 11 and 12. The program will cover robot construction, visual programming, language programming, C# programming, web programming in service-oriented computing, phone app programming and a robotics challenge. The robots built by students will enter a robotics challenge and demonstration at the end of camp. Students will be awarded a certificate upon successful completion of the program. ASU’s Master Learners Academy’s summer programs will also include workshops on interpersonal and leadership skills, the typical campus and American culture experience which will include the ASU campus tour, extra-curricular activities, and field trip excursions like a visit to Great Canyon, one of the seven wonders of the world and the opportunity to spend a weekend at the Tonto Creek Camp, an organization that provides youth opportunities to explore the natural world, giving them outdoor experiences that will enrich their physical and mental well-being.

Speaking about the summer program, Holly Singh, Senior Director of International Students & Scholars Center says, “We are very excited to collaborate with BrainGain Magazine for the launch of our first-ever global summer programs for students who want to study abroad. Since 2015, BrainGain Magazine has partnered with leading global universities to bring high school students from over 35 countries to US campuses for an immersive summer program that provides an excellent learning and orientation to college life. To ensure diversity of options for our potential students, we have launched two programs under ASU’s Master Learners Academy – one that focuses on design thinking and creative problem solving and the other that focuses on robotics and technology.”

Arizona State University is recognized globally as a top-ranked knowledge enterprise. It’s ranked #4 for its online undergraduate degree programs in the U.S. and is considered as a leader in graduate education. ASU is also ranked among the top ten for producing the best-qualified graduates.

“ASU is ranked #1 as USA’s most innovative university and I’m confident that students who will be a part of the summer program will benefit greatly from the curriculum. We are thrilled about collaborating with ASU for their Master Learners Academy. It will be the perfect opportunity for students to not only get a preview of what it would be like to study abroad, but also get an idea of the culture at a reputed university at ASU. We are very excited to partner with ASU to make the summer programs a whopping success”, says Harjiv Singh, Founder of BrainGain Magazine.

The summer program costs $2,750 USD per student which includes tuition fees, on-campus accommodation and meals and off-campus activities and activity supply but excludes airfare, visa costs and international travel insurance. Applications for the ASU Master Learners Academy’s summer programs can be submitted online. ASU is one of the largest public universities by enrollment in the U.S. In 2018, it was chosen by U.S. News & World Report as the nation’s most innovative school for the third year in a row.
