Each week presents a different challenge which calls on students to twist their brains and research about the topic or problem presented to them.
From hands-on SCIENCE experiments, ARTS and HUMANITIES to SOCIAL games and activities the EXPLORERS programme aims to encourage knowledge acquisition and idea sharing within a fun and creative environment.
The STEAM Model
In an ever changing world, abundant of knowledge children need no longer be told what to study. Rather our aim is to teach students How to Learn in order for them to learn to Think rather than just be consumers of technology and information.
As our aim is not to predict the outcome of human achievement but rather to create the right environment for individual growth to take root.
All of EXPLORERS’ weekly activities and workshops follow the STEAM Model which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. The basic model of STEAM based education is to teach kids to bridge subjects and problem solve during hands-on activities. The idea behind this is to have children learn in an multidisciplinary and creative approach rather than by subject (ex. Maths, Languages or History as stand-alone subjects).
This creative approach allows students to use and apply knowledge from different domains towards different solutions or to simply come up with different ideas. It encourages students to think more broadly about real-world problems. It has helped create innovations like the iPhone, the original laptop computer, and is even revolutionizing cooking in third world countries, and improving air quality as a result.
It helps students ask questions, connect the dots, problem solve, think creatively, and be innovative. And not only can STEAM save the world, it can save our kids too by making their future bright.
