Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I let my child join STEM programmes?

Research has shown that STEM develops a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives.

What types of programmes are considered “STEM”?

STEM is a teaching philosophy that integrates all four disciplines together into a single, cross-disciplinary program that offers instruction in real-world (as opposed to purely academic) applications and teaching methods.

What ages are your programmes suitable for?

We cater to learners from 4 to adult as we believe learning is a lifelong journey and that’s what we would like to provide.

Can my child join your STEM programmes if they have no knowledge or experience of STEM?

Yes of course, we welcome learners at all levels and our trainers will guide them to their fullest potential.

What is the difference between regular and holiday programmes?

Regular programmes are mainly for students who are serious about STEM and are keen to pursue STEM in the future. Our regular programmes are all based on competition preparation and prepare students’ portfolios for DSA or STEM-related endeavours.

Holiday programmes are fun short programmes designed to let kids have some fun while developing a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives.

Will regular classes be stressful for my child?

The methodology we utilize in our lessons involves helping students to master concepts or skills and guiding them to apply those to a more complex task, which is done incrementally and with guidance from teachers.

What’s the difference between STEM Institution and other enrichment centres?

At STEM Institution, we prepare our students for life beyond classrooms as well as for admission into their desired schools. On top of preparing students for DSA by keeping a detailed record of our students’ achievements for DSA submission, we also do mock interviews with sample DSA questions with our students.

Are your programmes held online or onsite?

Our programmes are held BOTH online and onsite with different timings available. For online classes, materials will be couriered to your place before class starts.

Are There Prerequisites or Language Requirements?

There are some prerequisites for some of the programmes, do contact us at +65 9244 0472 if you need to check whether your child is suitable.
