“Don’t be bored, make something.”

That’s what the business card of a young maker reads.

Our Makerspace is :

“A space with materials for students to let their curiosity and imagination come to life. An informal, playful, atmosphere for learning to unfold. A space where making, rather than consuming is the focus. A space where trans-disciplinary learning, inquiry, risk-taking, thinking, crafting, tinkering, and wondering can blossom.”

Why does your child need the Makerspace?

A makerspace builds critical 21st century skills in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths).

The old system of learning by memorising formulas is out.

What’s in is learning by exploring, making and creating.

In the process, makers build essential soft skills like dealing with uncertainties, frustrations and failures, being patient to see a project through to the end and working together as a team.
