The human brain is designed to learn. And yet in order to learn, our brain must first attend to, focus on, and then absorb the new experiences. When there is a problem with any of these three steps, learning becomes difficult. During the first weeks of school, there is new environment, objects, and people in a young child's life can overload these steps. Understanding how the brain responds to new experiences can help us use these first weeks of school to set the stage for a productive and enjoyable year. The purpose of the study was to determine how adolescents take in new experiences in the 21st century for growing children belonging to the age group of 10 to 19 years. Adolescence is that period of transition that takes place between childhood and adulthood. It includes some big changes, like that to the body, and to the way a young person relates to the world. It is a critical period of development during which the main areas of the brain mature and develop. This report examines the adaptation of new experiences of adolescents in our 21st century and outlines how this knowledge can be applied. It focuses on understanding how children navigate this transition, how they respond to the various challenges that the transition presents, and what types of resiliency and protective factors may be important for the adolescents during this developmental period. The researcher states that adolescents are very much influenced by their peer groups and due to high competition in all aspects, they adapt to the new experiences more easily. Keywords: Adolescents, Transition, Adaptation, New Experiences, 21st Century.
