HÖHENWEG, Switzerland, Jan. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Pioneering Swiss boarding school Institut auf dem Rosenberg (Rosenberg) today introduced Humanix®– the program that trains students' cognitive capacities and literacy through the study of human connectives – to its holistic, individualized learning environment. The first school in the world to offer this program, Rosenberg will offer Humanix® to help students master 21st century challenges in coexistence with intelligent machines.
The addition of Humanix® to Rosenberg's accredited Rosenberg International Curriculum RIC® and Talent & Enrichment program underpins the school's mission to revolutionize the education system and encourages students to embrace the benefits of technology from an early age to prepare them to become leaders in the modern workplace.
"At Rosenberg, we embrace a forward-thinking approach to education that is well beyond the acquisition of knowledge," said Bernhard Gademann, Director General of Rosenberg. "We are proud to bring this offering to our students to help them understand, execute and develop innovations through an immersive learning experience based on experimental and project-based learning."
With an internal Humanix® qualification, students—starting as young as age 6—will graduate with essential data reading and analytics skills, as well as coding languages and mechatronics that are in high demand from top universities and global employers. In addition, students will become fluent in system thinking, entrepreneurship, cultural agility and critical thinking that will successfully prepare them for an existence with intelligent machines.
Students will select modules from the three Humanix® literacies to suit their individual learning journey. The program is personalised further through a variety of subject fields relevant across all subjects. Each course is designed to make learning context practical, applicable, relevant, and valuable.
Humanix® will also be housed in the newly created Humanix® Pavilion, dedicated to Data Science, adjoining Rosenberg's esteemed Future Park, a state-of-the-art facility where students can undertake projects guided by expert partners in the fields of science, technology, and design. Additional experiential programs include a Space Habitat designed in collaboration with Saga Space Architects; Boston Dynamics' agile, mobile robot, Spot; Climate Gardens by ETH Zurich; and the school's fleet of Audi e-trons that are powered by Rosenberg's very own vertical farm and wind trees.
