What does your child learn

Design and Build LEGO engineering models that promote constructive problem solving and helps understand why things around them are built in the way they are.

Using ScratchJr to program their own interactive stories and games, children learn to design simple programming solutions while creatively express themselves on the computer.

Design 3D models with Minecraft Education and build theme-based challenges that promotes creativity through an incredibly popular game-based learning platform.

Develop the ability to question the world around them and think 'outside the box' in order to overcome challenges and hurdles.

You can't use up creativity. The more you use the more you have.

Course Overview

This course offers a perfect combination and balance between Game Design and Computing along with Engineering in alternate weekly classes.

In Minecraft week, children will immerse in a 3D virtual world and be introduced to theme-based building challenges that promotes creativity and problem-solving skills.

 

During a computing week using ScratchJr, students will be encouraged into a gentle introduction to coding concepts using a graphical block-based interface to make their favorite characters move, jump, sing, or dance. 

During an engineering activity using LEGO Bricks, students will design and build theme-based LEGO models that engage them in understanding and working on real-world topics.

These sessions will encourage your young child’s natural creativity, innate curiosity about the world, build on their ability to solve problems independently, and capacity for forming and answering their own questions getting them interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and they will be better equipped to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
