What does it take to shape an idea and turn it into a reality?
At Saturday Kids, we point out the stars and provide kids rockets so they can shoot for the moon. But we understand that the distance between an idea and reality – between where we are and where we want to be – can be daunting, discouraging, and stop kids from dreaming big all together.
We can’t promise kids that their big ideas will succeed; after all, this ain’t a bubble – it’s the real world.
But what we can do is equip kids with grit, encourage them to get their hands dirty tinkering with tech, and cultivate their creative confidence to communicate their big ideas, seek genuine feedback, and receive constructive criticism.
With these superpowers in their toolbox, they’ll be all set to take on the world’s big questions and whatever life throws at them, and make an impact in their own unique way.
Let’s start by looking at things from a different perspective.
One of the best ways to get inspired? Lookin’ at things from a different perspective. Through the lens of the social sciences – primarily anthropology – we’ll launch our adventure into the world of tech and its problem-solving potential.
Combining this with an introduction to design thinking, kids’ll start the process of brainstorming possibilities, sharpening their ideas, and understanding the steps they need to take to make ’em possible.
Mix in some high-tech hardware.
Next, discover VIVIWARE Cell – cutting-edge hardware at the intersection of programming and robotics. Designed to encourage kids to tinker, build, and create, kids will get hands-on designing a prototype to test our their hypotheses.
Develop creative confidence through a play-based approach to public speaking.
We’ll introduce kids to Ultraspeaking, a play-based approach to developing public speaking skills. Through games and interactive group exercises, kids will learn to express themselves with confidence and creativity, engage an audience, and advocate for themselves and their ideas.
Learning how to learn is about progress, not perfection.
Synergising everything they’ve learned, kids’ll showcase their prototypes and pitch their ideas to their peers. But most importantly – they’ll have learned a thing or two about learning how to learn, and take away a lifelong learning attitude that values progress over perfection.
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.
