“Your vocation in life is where your greatest joy meets the world's greatest need.” - Frederick Buechner. But finding it requires experimentation, discovery, failure, and the confidence to be open to new things. It’s never too early to encourage children to explore the world and develop their own interests and skills.
This is why we’re proud to announce our partnership with EXPLO, which aims to help children explore the world of people and ideas, and develop the confidence, courage, and daring to create the future they imagine. At EXPLO, students explore a wide variety of subjects to help them identify their strengths and interests.
This year, students entering grades 8-9 in EXPLO’s Medical Rounds program will use the InSimu Patient App to develop insight into what it means to diagnose like a physician.
We share the same mission: to support learning through exploration and experience.
At InSimu we’re happy to contribute to the inspirational learning environment that EXPLO provides, and hope that many students discover their passion for medicine.
