Holiday Camps 2021 @Genius Assembly


Lego Science 4 - 6 years

  • 5 - 9 Apr 9:30-11:30 AM
  • 12 -16 Apr 9:30-11:30 AM

Lego Science course for early learners is a creative and intuitive program that introduces preschoolers to early coding and critical 21st century skills, while naturally sparking their curiosity, creativity and desire to explore and learn together.

We use various lego sets in this camp that have the “Duplo” logo including Early Simple Machines and Coding express. The camp curricula allows children to intuitively explore early coding concepts while developing problem-solving skills, critical thinking and collaboration.

Kids who are comfortable building using the normal size lego bricks get to try their hands-on machines built using gears, pulleys and levers

Skills learnt:

  • Computational skills, Design & Innovation, Creativity, Collaboration, Expressing ideas and imagination

 

Lego Science 6 - 10 years

  • 15 -19 Mar 12:30-2:30 PM
  •  29 Mar - 1 Apr 9:30 AM-12 PM 

This is a unique course that teaches robotics and engineering using Lego education sets and programming skills using Scratch

The progression and difficulty level in the projects allow students to develop competency while exploring and learning about key science topics. 

We follow the eight science and engineering practices:

  • Ask questions and solve problems.
  • Use models.
  • Design prototypes.
  • Investigate.
  •  Analyze and interpret data.
  •  Use computational thinking.
  • Engage in argument from evidence.
  • Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information

​Skills learnt:

  • Computational skills, Design & Innovation, Science concepts, Creative skills, Presentation & communication skills

Lego Science 11 - 14 years

  • 12 - 16 Apr 12:30-2:30 PM

This camp is a hands-on, cross-curricular program that engages and challenges high school students to practice their STEM and robotics skills in a ‘near real-world’ environment. Easily adaptable to fit any learning environment, MINDSTORMS EV3 offers the opportunity for confidence-boosting in-depth study, preparing students to pursue further education in computer science, engineering and other related areas.

  • 29 Mar - 1 Apr 12:30-2:30 PM

Holiday camps are mostly for beginner levels, either complete beginners or who have just started playing chess

Topics covered - Rules, Check Mate, Special moves, Tactics, Chess Notations

Code Easy (Scratch) 6 - 10 years

  • 5 - 9 Apr 12:30-2:30 PM

Coding workshops are an amazing way for our kids to start developing important skills such as computational thinking, algorithmic logic, problem-solving and creativity.Coding, just like any other language, is learned best at a young age. There are many ways to teach programming, however, the main challenge is how to explain abstract mathematical concepts like axis, parameters and variables to young children. Scratch, a programming language that was developed by MIT, rises to the challenge. It uses colorful animation to help illustrate difficult concepts and opens a door to the wonderful world of code.

Highly recommended that students bring their own laptop or ipad/tablet so that they continue to practise at home.

You may also loan a laptop for the entire duration of the camp for a nominal amount. Please ask for it during registration.
