Our workshops are designed to supplement and enrich your child’s learning at school and encourages them to apply the concepts learnt at school into real life applications like designing their own ‘smart home’ which extends what they have learnt about electricity, sensors and other concepts in Science.

Our new curriculum framework features Junior, Intermediate and Advanced levels and our Junior levels cater to Years Prep to Grade 2 and are designed to give them a foundation learning into robotics, animation and electronics.

Our Intermediate and Advanced levels cater to Years 3 to 8 and allows a progression of knowledge and skills acquisition through the levels as they advance through the different levels of workshops. They will learn extensive and practical knowledge about gears, pulleys and other concepts introduced at school.

LEGO® WeDo

LEGO® Education WeDo is a fantastic, simple-to-use cross-curricular tool that enables students to learn, construct and then bring their models to life using intuitive drag-and-drop software. An ideal product for teaching in different subjects at primary levels, it can be applied to language and literacy, math and various engineering, design and technology-based subjects. At the same time students will develop and improve different communication, collaboration and team-building skills.

Brickmation (Stop Motion Animation with Lego®)

Brickmation is the practice of making stop motion animation using Lego.  Brickmation takes simple, prefabricated materials and puts them to new, largely amusing, ends.  In a computer generated imagery era, stop motion has a back to basics, no frills ethos behind them.

Coding

Coding, in the simplest of terms, is telling a computer what you want it to do, Code powers our digital world. Every website, smartphone app, computer programme, calculator and even microwave relies on code in order to operate. This makes coders the architects and builders of the digital age.

Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab and a graphical programming language that we use to teach students how to code and program your own interactive stories, games, and animations. Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.

Robotics with Edison

Edison is an easy to program, Lego-compatible robot that can navigate around obstacles, is sensitive to light, and can change its behaviour by driving over barcodes! Edison robots can interact with each other and, when connected to a laptop, can be programmed through an accessible visual interface to make music and to follow instructions. Edison will appeal to students curious about robotics and the nature of programming.

Robotics with Sphero SPRK edition

Sphero SPRK is a robotic ball that can be controlled by the SPRK app which lets you give your robot the orders with visual blocks representing code. Students can immediately see the connection between the program they created and how Sphero work and react. Sphero is the inspiration for the new driod BB-8 featured in the new Star Wars movie: The Force Awakens.
