Minecraft Minecraft

At Young Outliers, It’s like the real world in the classroom. You make friends as you learn, design, build, and start your businesses.

 

Our workshops are designed to elevate strengths and awaken passions. We connect academics with design entrepreneurship. 

 

Young Outliers courses are hands-on, in-depth, and multidisciplinary. No worksheets. No lectures.

 

Through fun and socially interactive simulations in the form of games, improv, the arts, projects, experiments, building, and designing for business and social challenges, our participants learn to connect academics to the real-world from the perspective of design entrepreneurs.

 

 

Sample page 2:

Yet those who wish ill of peace have left Micaela and her family unwanted. They have taken with them joyful and comforting moments and precious belongings of true love. Micaela now lives in her mind. Her thoughts travel to her young frail body, burdened with the weight of sadness. She can hardly breathe. In her spirit the suffering is intense, Micaela feels like she's dying.

Sample page 1:

Micaela holds onto the rock that brings her joy and goodness. It is all about true love. The rock is magical and can be as big as the earth and small like a pebble. It can be pure as white, like the clouds in the sky and dark like the deep sea. It is an unknown object. At the blink of an eye, the rock can change color and size.
