Best in STEM-based
Inventive Kids strives to bring hands-on learning experiences to foster inter-disciplinary thinking with inventiveness to prepare our children for the future.
We are also a:
LEGO Education Beta Test Panelist in Asia
LEGO Education Retailer
Our hands-on experiential learning activities impart STEM concepts and skills through the creating and exploring of toy models. Purposeful play develops focus and builds a strong foundation for learning and creative thinking.
STEM & ROBOTICS CHALLENGES
Our students look forward to our practical STEM challenges which position them to analyse problems & devise divergent solutions. They need to apply sense-making, inventiveness and persevere in executing their ideas until they achieve a viable solution.
DEVELOP A GROWTH MINDSET
We cultivate a growth mentality whereby goals can be achieved through diligence, good strategies and input from others. This growth mentality is the cornerstone of our learning experiences to nurture self-efficacy of our students to succeed in life.
What is KinderSTEM™?
KinderSTEM™ is a developmental, heuristic play-based STEM program for preschoolers, nurturing a holistic skill set of visual-perceptual abilities, cognitive processing, motor skills and real world STEM application knowledge.
Our lessons incorporate hands-on applications and real world knowledge into activities that aim to develop logical reasoning and problem solving strategies, providing an early advantage in critical thinking for your child. Every activity also has the consistent theme of developing a child's visual-spatial perceptions, working memory, eye-hand coordination and motor skills.
We have also included a hands-on screenless coding robotics program in our KinderSTEM™ curriculum that is suitable for young learners. Through hands-on play, our students will develop cognitive abilities, imagination & and coding skills!

Clarity of basic concepts lays the foundation for any studies (including the ability to answer a certain 2019 PSLE math question involving shapes :)). This methodically organised term expands a child’s visual-spatial and numeracy skills through exploration of shapes, patterns, sequencing, symmetry and simple math, through play.
The thorough hands-on manipulation of simple & compound 2D & 3D shapes gives young children an early advantage in geometry and key science skills of observation and categorization. Simple sums and shapes pattern recognition trains critical thinking and logic skills and helps to lay the first steps towards learning complex number concepts and mathematical operations.
The students will also learn basic coding to move a robot which includes planning the shortest route for the robot to travel by applying logical thinking and arithmetic (sequential and simple math) in their decision.
Simple & compound shapes
2D & 3D shapes
Patterns & Sequences
Symmetry & Balance
Single & Double Digit Addition & Subtraction
Introduction to Matatalab
(Hands-on Screen-less Coding)
Analytical and problem-solving thinking will be consistently practiced throughout this term as we focus on relevant and applicable concepts in real-world settings such as time and money. Our aim is to build confidence & independence within an individual student, even as they work in groups. They will experience what it is like to buy and sell "materials" in Singapore currency to build their toy models while strengthening their addition and subtraction concepts!
After learning to code in Term 1, the students will now code independently and confidently by themselves. This time, the routes will be full of obstacles and they need to analyse the mat to decide a shortest and safest route, sharpening their critical thinking in this process.
Ones & Tens
'Carry-over' technique for addition & subtraction
Time (Hours, minutes, seconds)
Concept of decimals
Math operations with currency
Strengthening basic coding concepts for self-reliance
How are Archery & Volleyball related to simple multiplication and division concepts? Through such exciting games, the students would want to know how well they are faring in points and thus, they need to quickly calculate their scores with the use of multiplication. Working backwards in the form of division, the students will ‘see’ how the total scores can be easily reasoned and understood.
Angles and its application will also be introduced through a Billiard session and the concept of angles is further strengthened through the coding lessons as the students need to code the robot to draw various shapes with different angles.
Multiplication & division
Mirrors & reflection
Angles & navigation
Classification & data collection
Exploring complex programming sequence through Matatalab
This term exposes the young students to some simple mechanisms that are used in our daily lives. They will learn how gears work and the application of compound gears, wheels & axles, etc. Additionally, their math will be strengthened through playing games that require not just math competence but also motor and coordination skills to be successful.
In this term, the coding segment now includes colour sensor and music to make the challenges even more exciting, concurrently, strengthening their basic concepts in coding - sequencing & directions as well as critical thinking to solve problems along the way.
Weight & Distance
Gears & Pulley
Wheel & Axle
Multiplication & Division
Application of coding through music and remote
