# Pre Olympiad Thousand Flowers Program

The *Thousand Flowers Program *introduces mathematics and science to **students up to class six** in a revolutionary manner. It emphasizes on critical thinking instead of dull calculations. It brings to forefront ‘doing’ mathematics and science rather than memorizing them.

This program prepares the young gifted student for a rigorous training for Olympiads (Math, Physics, Chemistry, and Informatics).
