UPCOMING HOLIDAY CAMPS
SUMMER 2020 HOLIDAY CAMPS (ONLINE / OFFLINE)
This Summer we are offering a variety of programmes to parents. You may choose to enrol your child for the online option (materials will be delivered to you), or send your child to us at our centre in Jaya One. Please note that there are only 5 spots available for each physical programme.
OPTION ONE: BRAIN IMPACT SIMULATOR PROGRAMME (10-15 YEAR OLDS)
Introducing a programme from Microsoft’s HackingSTEM modules! The Brain Impact Simulator programme allows students to build models to understand and mitigate brain injury.
Build and learn
Students build a brain impact simulator to visualize the effects of head collisions. Sensors on the simulator measure the amount of pressure the brain experiences when hit by a pendulum.
Connect your tools
Digitize your device using Arduino Uno. Students learn essential prototyping and electrical engineering skills by connecting the brain impact simulator to Excel to visualize the impact on the brain.
Visualize the data
Using a customized Excel workbook, students visualize the magnitude of the pendulum impact on the brain and analyze how each region is affected. Students can run and save multiple trials to compare impact data. This data informs students’ design of protective head gear.
OPTION TWO: JUNIOR CSI – THE CASE OF THE CAKE SHOP BURGLAR! (7-9 YEAR OLDS), RM150
Who broke into Miss Nellie’s cake shop? Who stole all her money? Join us in this forensic investigation for young investigators to solve this case! Perform experiments like fingerprint analysis, footprint analysis, powder analysis, handwriting analysis and other exciting experiments!
OPTION THREE: SAM & SUZY SCIENTIST SAVE THE DAY! (6-9 YEAR OLDS)
Follow up: SAM & SUZY SAVE THE DAY AGAIN!
Sam and Suzy Scientist are a pair of siblings who live in the village of Wunderland. They love science, and they love using their knowledge of science to help others solve problems. Join them this holiday on their problem-solving adventures!
OPTION FOUR: LEARN TO CODE WITH MICROBIT (9-13 YEAR OLDS), RM280 including Microbit set
Get an introduction to coding with Microbit as well as applying code to develop all sorts of fun applications! Make things like an air guitar, robot, code a game, and others. Fee includes a Microbit set (if you already have one we will reduce the fee accordingly).
OPTION FIVE: MAGIC OF STEM (9-13 YEAR OLDS), RM200
Experience STEM in a truly “magical” way! We learn that many things that appear to be magic are actually driven by science or engineering. A fun workshop for upper primary/lower secondary school students.
OPTION SIX: ELECTRONICS (9-13 YEAR OLDS), RM200
Hone your skills in engineering and electronics through these fun projects! Learn how to make a deskfan, build a musical bell sound circuit and make robots, amongst other things.
OPTION SEVEN: SOUND & WAVES (13-15 YEAR OLDS), RM200
A physics and engineering workshop where students learn about the properties of sound and how to manipulate or design gadgets to achieve the desired applications.
