Inventive Kids® Play-Based STEM Learning Centre provides children with hands-on learning experiences in S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts to foster critical,inter-disciplinary thinking,problem-solving,inventiveness,communication and teamwork.
Adopting ‘play’ as the medium of learning, the centre’s distinctive STEM programmes aim to help kids develop and advance important skills beyond academic excellence. Play is fun, which is important to engage the creative side of the mind. It is also a natural learning process where children manipulate objects, experiment and discover how things work, and turn ideas into practical form. In fact, creating prototypes or toy models is the cornerstone of Inventive Kids’ programs.
During an Inventive Kids’ lesson, children will be given challenges to solve individually or as a team. As there is more than one single solution to meet the challenge, children will learn to generate ideas on their own and/ or harness the power of diversity of ideas from the entire team, build the prototypes and put them to the test. Many tests, in fact, as they will be guided to observe the performance of their toy models and to modify them – when required – to the desired expectations. The iterating cycle of building, observing, troubleshooting and modifications allows the children to explore endless possibilities revolving STEM concepts.
