STEAM Program by sandbox.asia
About the Event
We are a provider of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) complementary education with the goal of preparing children for a digital future. We want to give our kids a platform to learn “hard” digital and useful “soft” skills, that will make them relevant in a digital landscape. Our belief is that these skills will be crucial for them to chart a successful path in their lives and careers, to understand, participate in and capitalise on the opportunities in the new digital economy.
Currently we provide Robotics, Programming, Game Development, Digital Content and Digital
Arts & Design classes. Our programs are designed for children aged 6 to 14. Though our courses are grounded in technical knowledge and skills, we emphasise structured and critical thinking skills, problem solving and teamwork via task and project based learning. This steers the children to a more holistic outcome rather than just rote learning.
Current Programs Offered
Kids will learn programming, mechatronics design and assembly in order to build any robotics project of choice on either an Arduino or Lego platform.
Students will be introduced to baseline development skills such as programming flow and also basic game designs using Unity.
