Summer camps

Offering great opportunities in 2017

Students will be immersed in practical application and exploration of science, learning key concepts through the use of science kits, practical experiments and building projects, using the scientific method as the primary method of investigation. The science summer camps will develop skills of critical thinking and problem solving, and ultimately shift students’ mind-sets and approach to STEM, building the foundation for careers relevant to the needs of their country and the 21st century. Learning Objectives It is anticipated that by the end of the science camps, students will be able to:

  • Ask testable questions
  • Use the scientific method to solve a problem in the environment
  • Use the engineering method to solve a problem in the environment
  • Collaborate with others in problem-solving
  • Communicate findings in a simple but clear way.
  • Apply their knowledge in new situations

This camp is focused on kick starting students to acquire the knowledge, skill and attitudes to thrive in 21st century careers. This is a fun, action-packed and exhilarating skill- building camp using educational games, leadership and entrepreneurial activities to nurture creativity, innovation, team building, communication, presentation and business skills. Students will learn how to take an idea from concept to design to market; how to speak persuasively to a target audience; how to develop a winning strategy, amongst others. The overall learning objective is to enable students become forward-thinking, proactive and business savvy to enable them take advantage of technological advances and growing markets in a fast changing world. Students will learn how to build tomorrow, today.
