All you need to know

Sakura season is the best season to be out and enjoying the blooms but we understand it can be hard to enjoy with kids in tow.

How about the opportunity to let your kids have some coding fun for 2 hours while you enjoy the flowers?

At Saturday kids, we believe in play because play is the best way to learn.  We opened up playroom for families to understand the power of play and how coding can help your kids build a better future for themselves.  Playroom is an environment we designed, with appropriate guidance and materials, where your kids can experiment with coding tools.  What we truly want is for your kids to see for themselves where their imagination and curiosity can take them.

Just come with an open mind and see where play can lead you!

This Sakura Season, we will be using VIVIWARE Cells to create your inventions.

VIVIWARE Cell is a new prototyping tool that sits at the intersection of programming and robotics and can help you bring your ideas to live. With 11 components encompassing sound, light, motion, sensors and more, it allows for creative combinations to encourage kids to tinker, build, and create. With VIVIWARE Cells, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Please see following site for examples of work created using VIVIWARE Cells.

Oh! The stuff you'll learn

In this introductory project-based workshop synergising design and robotics, we begin inventing a better future with the power of technology through the making of Sakura oriented designs using VIVIWARE Cells.  The kids would be shown an example of how they can combine a design idea with VIVIWARE Cells and then asked to replicate or design their own inventions.   In this workshop, kids would be encouraged to:

    • Think creatively 
    • Tinker with hardware and coding
    • Think on their feet & find their unique voice

Life skills you'll learn

Creative Confidence
Design Thinking

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

Your kid will love it.

If your kid doesn't think it's the best thing ever after attending the first 2 days of holiday camps (or first 3 weeks of term classes), and would like to withdraw, we'll issue you a 50% credit note of the amount paid.
