Equipping Kids with 21st Century Skills

Manu Menon, CEO and Co-Founder of Youthopia

Equipping Kids with 21st Century Skills

The team behind edu-tech startup Youthopia believe children need more than just academic smarts to succeed in life. This is why they are focused on equipping children aged 10-16 across Southeast Asia with core life skills that will help them think critically, solve problems creatively and communicate effectively. We speak to CEO and Co-founder Manu Menon about Youthopia’s hybrid approach to the learning experience, using gamification to test critical thinking skills, and the team’s gameplan to make this the new normal in education.
