Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy ensures that at least 50% of its programs contain hands-on activities. We believe that learning is best when immediately reinforced by a visual and tangible lesson. Some of the experiments we do are demonstrations for the safety of the children.

However, none of our workshops is "pure theory/lecture", unless otherwise stated. We encourage the children's active participation in experiments/activities whenever possible.

  • The key concepts per session will be kept minimal and simple.
  • They will be reinforced repeatedly, along with experiments, to achieve the desired learning outcomes.
  • Experiments and activities will be distributed over the duration of the session.
  • Theory sessions will be brief and serve to connect the different activities.
  • Videos and animations will be employed whenever possible.
  • Worksheets and Observation sheets will be provided wherever necessary.
