Supplementary Science & STEM Classes
We take things one step further than the usual tuition centre. In addition to our thematic workshops, we provide supplementary science and STEM classes that focus on scientific concepts and applications that are aligned with the National and IGCSE syllabus.
SUPPLEMENTARY SCIENCE & STEM CLASSES
Learning through hands-on experiments
We take things one step further than the usual tuition centre. In addition to our thematic workshops, we provide supplementary science classes that focus on scientific concepts and applications that are aligned with the National and IGCSE syllabus. Our classes feature a combination of theory and hands-on experiments, ensuring that our students are kept engaged. Students will also be able to sit for the International University of New South Wales Science Examination (ICAS). We bring science to life by linking complex science subjects with hands-on experiments in our well-equipped lab. For primary school students, our classes integrate other aspects of STEM i.e. Technology, Engineering and Maths, thereby giving them a more holistic approach towards learning the different disciplines.
Weekly classes by awesome educators
We have customised classes for different age groups. They will help enrich students’ science knowledge and prepare them for higher order thinking skills (HOTS) questions. We intentionally use small class sizes that allow for more personalised tuition and better exam scores. Our students are encouraged to ask questions, try new angles to their approach and take charge of their own learning, particularly if they are in secondary school. All of our classes are taught in English, so if you are searching for a science enrichment programme that will help to supplement your child’s learning in English, we can help you too!
All our trainers are passionate educators with a University science degree. Join our weekly supplementary science classes now to ensure a place!
MINI STEM EXPLORERS
The Mini STEM Explorers course is targeted at children aged 5-7 years. This course gives them an introduction to the world of science and aims to keep them excited through a series of awesome activities and experiments, every week! Topics covered in this programme include living and non-living things, plants, weather, toys, and computational thinking.
The STEM Discovery programme is targeted at children aged 7-9 years and consists of 3 levels: Level 1, 2, and 3. Students will be taught a deeper level of science in addition to performing an activity or experiment every week. Topics covered in this programme cover both the Malaysian national syllabus as well as the IGCSE syllabus, giving them a well-rounded perspective of science.
The STEM Exploration programme for children aged 10-12 years follows a project-based learning concept, where students are guided through a particular theme to complete their own project. This marks the foundation for IBSE (inquiry-based science education), since students are given the freedom to learn at their own pace as well as determine the outcome of their projects.
Bringing back the excitement in IGCSE Science through IBSE
Our proprietary Science Foundation curriculum allows our students to complete the entire IGCSE science syllabus in 3 years. Employing a combination of concept based learning and inquiry based learning, we believe this will give students the most holistic way of learning science. The classes are a combination of theory and hands-on experiments or activities, but even in the teaching we try to ensure that students facilitate their own learning through different methods. We currently run Science Foundation classes for students from the public, private and even international and home schooling centers, and they see a difference in the way they are taught at school and with us.
For those taking Checkpoint or IGCSE exams, we have recently set up special classes for you! Classes are conducted with strict adherence to the syllabus and are designed for you to take the papers at the desired time. But never fear – we still make sure you get to run experiments, learning science through theory and practical work.
Finally, for those interested in exploring research as a potential career path, we offer the SBA Research Mentorship programme. Under this 7-8 month programme, students will undertake their own research project, supervised by qualified instructors, which ultimately culminates in the publication of a paper or a presentation/exhibit at a science event.
The SBA Foundation programme compresses the entire IGCSE science syllabus into 3 years, which makes it suitable for those wishing to take the papers within this time frame. Students entering Year 7, 8 or 9 would be able to follow this course, although supplementary work is required prior to the sitting of the examination.
CHECKPOINT YEAR 9
Our Cambridge Checkpoint Yr 9 programme is designed for those entering Year 9, who would be sitting for the paper in 1 year. This 12 month programme will cover all the topics required for the examination, including time allocated for exam revision. We also offer practical work so as to keep learning a bit more interesting! This class is offered in both online and offline modes for convenience.
The SBA Research Mentorship programme is a brand-new, exciting programme targeted at students who might be interested in exploring research as a potential career option. In this 7-8 month programme, students will be guided through their own research project, culminating in a written paper or presentation at a relevant science/STEM exhibition. We have commenced our first cohort.
