Your Child Will Learn

MAKE: IT 

Your child will learn design and prototyping concepts to understand how gears work, followed by building their very own prototype of a fully-functioning Laser Clock. Kids will also learn engineering techniques and mechanical concepts by building a pulley system. Day 1 is about hands-on making, transforming everyday materials with basic hand tools and techniques including usage of the necessary tools.

Knowledge Check : 3D design and Prototype, Mechanical Engineering, Science and Math Concepts

GEAR: IT

Explore the boundless world of robotics and engineering with LEGO Mindstorms. Your child will learn visual programming, develop structural design skills as well as program and utilize different sensors. Day 2 is about utilizing software to enhance hardware as your child will build their own Digital Clock and automate the Pulley System.

Knowledge Check : Programming and Computational Thinking concepts, Robotics and Engineering, LEGO Mindstorms

 

RE-ENGINEER: IT 

On Day 3 – your child will now get into groups for a challenge! The task is to build a prototype using LEGO Mindstorms pieces where your child will also need to apply his or her knowledge of mechanical and gears concepts learnt across the last 2 days.  This is the day where form meets function, the perfect balance of design and engineering. Teamwork, critical thinking, trouble-shooting and collaboration – reinforcing your child’s emotional intelligence.

Knowledge Check : Teamwork, Knowledge Application, Creativity and Design, Robotics and Engineering, EQ

DREAM: IT

Our MAKE: IT \ GEAR: IT campers will go on a Guided Campus Tour of the Singapore University of Technology and Design – Inspiring young minds! This happens on Day 3 in the morning.

 About The Partners

CURIOUS KITS

“Curious Kits is a home-grown brand, made up of a team of professionally trained architects who used to sit at the office just staring at the computer screen day after day. What the team really wished, was to be able to make more sketches by hand and build models from paper and cardboard.

We started Curious Kits out of a desire to see children’s education and entertainment done differently. The sight of children being glued to various mobile and electronic devices made us question if this is indeed the best way for children to develop a sense of curiosity and learn about the world around them.

Through Curious Kits, we hope bring hands-on fun back into learning.”
