HacKIDemia is back again for the September edition and this time, we will be at the Science Centre Singapore!
We invite kids and their parents to join in for a morning of creative and interactive learning involving science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (S.T.E.A.M) through a series of mini hack!shops.
The programme will adopt an 'unconference' or 'BarCamp' approach where kids are allowed to move around and participate in any activity that they like. Parents are also invited to mentor and facilitate a mini activity as well.
The following workshops will be offered:
1. Exploring squishy circuits
2. Make your own electronic toy brick
3. Build a bristlebot
4. Experiment with paper circuits and conductive ink
5. Learn how to solder (* parental guidance required)
6. Take things apart: Harvest components by tearing down electronic equipment
7. Sensor basics with Arduino and oscilloscopes
8. Breadboard electronics (with ATtiny85)
9. Learn technology with littleBits
Each activity is facilitated by a mentor for five kids (5-12 years old) and the duration is approximately 45 minutes long.
About HacKIDemia Singapore
HacKIDemia Singapore is part of an international network of HacKIDemia mobile invention labs started in Singularity University, Mountain View, California by educator and former Googler, Stefania Druga. It aims to sensitize kids and their parents about value behind building hardware and software in a playful manner through creative, interactive and hands-on workshops. Currently, there have been more than 40 workshops conducted for more than 2000 children by 200 mentors in ten cities around the world: Bucharest, Berlin, Sofia, Austin, Sao-Paulo, Lagos, Dallas, Paris, New York and Singapore.
The September HacKIDemia hack!shop will be held at the Science Centre Singapore (15 Science Centre Road) about 5 minutes walk from Jurong East MRT interchange. Admission to the Science Centre is included with registration.

When & Where
We are inviting the maker community in Singapore to work together in creating a supportive tech-ecosystem to grow a new generation of makers that is tech competent and world ready.
As a not-for-profit project, HacKIDemia Singapore is driven entirely by volunteers. Adopting the 'hacker ethics', we want to serve communities that are marginalized socially or academically. We welcome volunteers from diverse backgrounds such as arts, design, psychology, science, engineering, IT and business to serve as mentors and conduct regular workshops for kids in software and hardware, art, science, design & technology.
