Our GK Program
General Knowledge, or GK, is a unique program at Best Brains designed to encourage self-guided learning. With a new topic every week, students are tasked with researching on their own and answering multiple choice questions. Students meet monthly in study groups to discuss their research and practice presentation skills. Students are then tested periodically to see how well they retain the knowledge gained from research.
Unlike other Best Brains programs, GK is student-led. Children take a proactive approach to their own learning to figure out how knowledge is gained beyond simply being told. GK stretches students’ skill sets and prepares them for high school level projects.
