Inaugural Canadian Public Speaking & Debate Contest for young leaders
Competitive Kids Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (CKSTEM) is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization engaged in enhancing kids' education by enabling them to achieve excellence. As a nonprofit organization, our core value system consists of serving and giving back to our community while enabling learning opportunities for all students transcending any financial, social, racial or economic barriers.
Started in 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic as a parent's quest to find the right blend of like-minded peer groups and an environment offering healthy competition, CKSTEM quickly became recognized as the place where parents, educators and industry experts came together to help young students.
In its first year of inception, our summer contest 2020 was highly successful with hundreds of students joining us from across the globe. Since then, more and more students are associating with us to learn, compete and win in STEM.
The CKSTEM Summer Contests 2021 is an initiative to provide students with an opportunity to compete in three areas: Mathematics, Computing, Public Speaking & Debate. This helps students in multiple ways: keeps them engaged through the summer, provides them with continued learning and helps them prepare for the new school year. In addition, the experience of competing boosts confidence, curiosity, logic, leadership as well as teaches teamwork; overall increasing the students' chances to succeed in life.
We believe, problem-solving is best learned by enabling critical thinking and 'connecting the dots'. Similar to competitive sports, students are coached to not only understand, and solve problems but also trained to compete, nurturing their competitive spirit and mental fitness.
Our courses focus on bringing the best out of the students. We have successfully coached students to become champions in national and international competitions. Our comprehensive training plan helps students to get into the best schools and universities. Students also find it fun to work with like-minded students who believe in excelling. We offer the following courses to the mathletes from grade 3-10:
CKSTEM is lead by some of the best professionals in the IT industry. They have put together very engaging training programs to help young coders to learn through a practical set of problems. We also prepare students to excel in computing competitions.
BE A LEADER THROUGH EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING AND DEBATE
WE believe in providing a well-balanced, holistic, and fun learning environment where students not only develop their intellect, problem-solving, math or programming skills but also gain confidence and empower themselves. Public Speaking & Debate is an intrinsic part of our life and successful society, hence, it is essential that students from an early age are given the opportunities and coaching to develop these skills. We have put together 2 full years programs to help you become a leader.
