WE ARE  LITTLE SCIENTISTS

A nonprofit organization on a mission to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers

Little Scientists offers science-themed activities for children aged 3+.  Our courses are based on the philosophy of educating kids in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through structured learning skills using LEGO education sets, the Scratch and ScratchJr programming languages and engaging experiments.  Our projects are fun and exciting, allowing children to explore the subjects in innovative and inventive ways outside the curriculum. We encourage the children to think creatively, reason systematically and realise their potential to shape their own future and promote participatory engagement.

Take a look through our site to learn more about us.

ROBOTICS

Our LEGO Robotics courses are designed to build confidence in STEAM learning from pre-schoolers through secondary education. Our hands-on tools make learning playful, engaging and relevant while developing students’ ability for critical thinking, communication and 21st century skills like coding and robotics.

What we offer:

Discovery Clubs - weekly classes for children aged 3 to 12

Weekend Adventures - monthly weekend classes  for children aged 3 to 12

Holiday Camps - multi-day themed camps during the school holidays

PROGRAMMING

Coding for children at Little Scientists begins with unplugged activities for pre-schoolers (aged 3 to 4). Children will learn programming concepts through the use of games or activities that can be done offline using tangible objects, such as paper, LEGO and markers. Kindergartners (aged 4-6) will use ScratchJr while elementary schoolers (aged 6 to 12) will use Scratch 3.0.  Kids combine coding blocks to make programs. Visual programming teaches the fundamental concepts without typing or syntax. This places the focus on the logic behind the code. Once they’ve learned the basics, kids can transition to more traditional programming languages like Python, JavaScript or C.

SCIENCE CLUBS

Our mission is to nourish a lifelong love of learning through science in all our children; igniting their natural curiosity by providing exciting and engaging STEM experiments, professionally delivered in a structured, safe, supervised, educational and fun environment.
Through our bespoke science-based programs we develop personal confidence and self-esteem. We promote creative thinking, teamwork, imagination and problem-solving abilities. We teach them “how to think…. rather than, what to think.” We think this best prepares them for the unpredictability of future challenges they will inevitably face in our constantly changing world.

We offer a wide selection of different robot themes from which the birthday girl/boy can pick their favourite 3-4 to build with their friends.

 

Our Lego parties run for 2hrs at the location of your choice.
