  • Develop programme development skills such as debugging and iteration
  • Collect and present data in various visual formats – learn to identify patterns and make predictions.
  • Explore and observe a variety of phenomena and derive explanations based on scientific theories
  • Understand what a growth mindset is and take steps to implement the concept in their own learning
  • Gather information about a problem by asking questions and doing research; Demonstrate how a problem affects others and brainstorm ideas using various methods

Life Skills You'll Learn

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.
