STEM Programs

In today’s rapidly changing world, many industries are growing in their capacity for technological advancement and innovation. STEM education approaches the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in an interdisciplinary way that promotes problem-solving skills. We offer a range of programs that equip students with hands-on experience to come up with inventive solutions to real-life scenarios. Being well-versed in STEM provides a competitive advantage in the workplace, but also instills a valuable analytical lens with which to navigate life’s challenges.

Robotics
Level 1: First Lego League Jr. (FLL Jr) Robotics Program​

Ages: 6 -9 Duration: 16 hours (8 weeks x 2 hrs/week)​

This program introduces young children to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts. In teams, children explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. and construct a motorized model using LEGO elements. In the process, students learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and core values including respect, sharing, and critical thinking.

Please note that participants are accepted on a first-come first-serve basis; however, given the under-representation of women in STEM fields, priority will be given to female students where required to achieve equal participation of both genders. Priority will also be given to older students that may not have an opportunity to participate in future iterations of the program due to age.

Level 2: First Lego League (FLL) Robotics Program​

Ages: 10 – 14 Duration: 24 hours (8 weeks x 3 hrs/week)​

Prerequisite: Preference may be given to students that have completed the FLL Jr Program​.

This hands-on program enables students to learn, play and compete using science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts. In teams, students are tasked with missions against a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. On a tabletop map, they receive points for successfully completing as many missions as possible in a timed, competitive environment.

Please note that we accept participants on a first-come first-serve basis; however, given the under-representation of women in STEM fields, priority will be given to female students where required to achieve equal participation of both genders.

iCompute
Level 1: Computer Coding Program​

 

Ages: 9 – 12 

Duration: 15 hours (10 weeks x 90mins)​

​This program teaches children how to solve problems, think creatively and express themselves using computer technology. Children will design a computer game and learn how to make characters move, dance and sing using Scratch, a simple programming language designed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. No prior experience in coding is required.
