John Huang of Hillsborough enrolled his daughter, Taliyah, in our Puzzles about Consciousness program when it was offered at Stanford's Pre-collegiate Institute in the Winter of 2017. “We wanted to expose her to another academic environment outside of school, to see a different perspective on things,” he said. “This course helps her think about those different perspectives and that there is more than one solution to a single problem.
