Learn to build, invent & prototype your own inventions with electronics!

What if kids can create their own piggy bank which buzzes when they save a coin? Or a toy dinosaur that flashes its eyes when someoneโ€™s about to enter the room? We bring kids through design thinking, an ideation & human-centric problem solving methodology by world-renowned design firm IDEO (who designed the computer mouse you're using now!). And then, we challenge kids to put their inventive skills and creativity to the test with a case study. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

For Kids aged 7-13

All you need to know!

These are littleBits.



Theyโ€™re fun electronic modules that invite kids to get creative while learning. Like Lego, littleBits are small, simple, intuitive blocks that snap together with tiny magnets.

Within every kid lies an inner little inventor. With the power to build from imagination, theyโ€™re filled with a sense of creative confidence and curiosity to build awesome inventions like this:



But itโ€™s more than just building cool inventions. Itโ€™s about inventing with a purpose and thatโ€™s where Design Thinking comes in. Design Thinking is a problem solving technique that tackles how we face issues by thinking from the perspective of others. By encouraging kids to invent for the people around them, we hope to inspire them to grow up and become more empathetic people.

After all, isnโ€™t that the key to making the world a better place?

Oh! The stuff you'll learn!

Pedagogy

Saturday Kids don't learn to code. They code to learn.

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. My Child is new to electronics and design thinking. Will he/she be able to follow?

The littleBits Electronics and Design Thinking course is an introductory course, so no need to worry about that, we'll make sure that all students are following as we progress through the class.

2. Can my child bring his/her inventions home after class

Absolutely. The course fee includes a littleBits Base Kit which your child can bring home and continue the inventing.

3. My child is younger than 7, can he / she join?

Having a range of kids with differing ages (& abilities, especially at the younger ages) might not yield the best learning outcomes. However, we do have a littleBits Junior programmes where the age range is strictly for kids 5-6, so do check that out.

4. Iโ€™ve enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?

Weโ€™ll provide all equipment and materials. Though you might want to bring a jacket and light snacks in case he/she gets hungry.
