The award-winning Arkki programme is the only one in Singapore (& Asia) that offers an extensive, long-term curriculum based on architecture and design for children and youth ages 7-19. Our curriculum offers 30 modules for progressive learning, each carefully designed for the age group it caters for.

The hands-on, project-based curriculum is carefully designed to equip the children and youth with 21st century skills: creativity, complex problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and resilience.

------------------------------------------

The Explorers programme (Module 1A.1) is a starter course for 7-9 year old children that introduces the foundational elements of architecture and the process of creative and critical thinking.

Through ideating, planning and finally translating their ideas into 3D models and designs – the pupils will jumpstart their imagination and prove their assumptions by experimenting and testing their ideas, no matter how unusual they may sound.

The pupils will acquire better sensing of their surroundings from colors, shapes to structures and space from projects including the tower construction, temple facade design, shadow puppet show ...and many more! Critical thinking skills develop here as the pupils review alternative theories and find different perspectives to problems. The pupils are guided to observe the surroundings and use different senses.

The course is also designed for pupils to gain a stronger grasp of STEAM, Humanities and Social Sciences subjects through a series of super fun and educational projects that connect with real life challenges (e.g. how to build the strongest tower, draw inspiration from history and design a temple façade, designing a natural shelter for animal..). It intertwines different subjects through projects and teaches artistic methods through hands-on activities. This course enhances collaboration, communication and presentation skills leading to the building of positive self-image and confidence.

Exciting projects await! Students will bring their models home after each project.
