“Geniuses are made, not born.”----Kenneth Ma


The genius development is the culmination and application of Kenneth’s lifelong learning journey. His goal is to discover and train children and teenagers to be geniuses. Every student who studies in a Genius classroom is a child of Kenneth’s. They will become the next inventors, scientists, innovators and IT entrepreneurs of the future. At Genius, our vision is to breed future leaders in the science and technology fields and eventually the next Nobel prize winner.


To parents:

Believe in your child; give your children systematic training that will spark their interest from a young age. Even though not every child is a musician, every parent is giving their child systematic music training; rather each child should instead receive systematic scientific training from an early age. Rest assured that the scientific training of Genius’ classroom will not be boring. STEM in Genius’ classrooms is always full of fun and inspiring materials; learning becomes reading a novel: fun and exciting while satisfying your child’s curiosity.


Scientists are cultivated this way. Please believe in Genius Development’s scientific elite team.


Bring your child and we will cultivate a genius.
