At Dual School, our goal is to help students launch their ideas. In doing so we’ve created a special culture where students feel relaxed and welcome, but also recognize they’re more productive than ever.
There are three key components that make the program so powerful:
- Projects of personal importance. Students work on things they truly care about. They apply with ideas and we help them make those ideas happen. This fundamentally changes any learning experience because the students are enrolled in the process.
- Connections to professionals. Students are paired with mentors who help facilitate connections to professionals in their field of interest. These relationships lead to a deeper understanding of the problem space and allow students to make quick progress.
- Rapid prototyping. Students are pushed to test their assumptions by prototyping ideas. We help them find ways to run small experiments that lead to insights into their projects.
