School’s out, but fun learning still goes on at Inventive Kids through engaging hands-on STEM workshops! Our holiday programs are curated to actively engage students to develop inventiveness, problem-solving, sense making and inter-disciplinary thinking.
Our signature hands-on programs to create toy models that replicate real-life objects connect children to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math concepts through play. Concept applications and theories are ‘embedded’ in the building and playing process. Students will be ecstatic when they experience first hand their creations meeting the challenging objective(s) given by our STEM educators!
ABC is our prior requirements for any student joining our programs:
Brave to try and
Courage to fail.
It is the term break of KinderSTEM but the building and creating continues!
Our holiday editions of KinderSTEM focuses on creating and building objects that are seen in everyday life.
The students will be given mostly recyclables as the main building materials and the objective for their toy model to meet. Without any building instructions and only with the newly acquired concept(s) in their mind, the students need to design & build through an iteration of trial & error to create their toy models. Under these testing conditions, it often brings out the best of the students’ inventiveness, sense making and critical problem-solving skills.
These programs are specially designed for students who are avid builders to create some challenging toy models using Thinkertoyland®.
While building and creating the structure, the students will learn and understand the applications of structural engineering (symmetrical, weight distribution, etc) to weave physics into their designs, sharpening one’s visual-spatial, team work and communication skills.
LEGO® Mindstorms EV3 Holiday
Robots and automation are already in our present lives and will increase in the future day-to-day applications too. Therefore, it is best to start young to learn concepts and acquire hands-on experience to keep abreast of developments that are advancing rapidly daily.
This robotics program is suitable for age 8 to 13 years.
LEGO® WeDo 2.0 Holiday
Lego Education WeDo 2.0 is the best introductory robotics program to a young explorer (boy and girl alike) with no prior robotics experience to enter the robotics world. The Accelerated Basic captures the imagination of the child and the many possibilities that WeDo can do. Most students would continue into WeDo Intermediate program and/ or taking up other WeDo one-off workshops during the school holidays.
Suitable for ages 6 and 7 years.
