FAQs

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.

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?

The centre is to provide impactful STEM education to our learners. Students not only learn but also “apply” STEM knowledge when they attempt problem solving.
We want students to have the aspiration to go into STEM and have the skills and knowledge as they grow up.
We take a modular approach, where under each programme, students are exposed to the different types of coding/robotics available. Each programme will be using a different robotic kit and the experience that they have with each programme will be different.
We will also want to impart soft skills to them, and whether they take the DSA route or not, we believe that  participating in competitions helps the kids build up their confidence, ability to speak and present, work with others to solve problems and get exposed to critical thinking and problem solving.
In addition to all of that, we focus on quality rather than quantity. It's not about having a fixed structure that forces all students to learn at the same rate but rather keeping the class small and addressing the different students' learning needs as well.
