For whom: children aged 4 to 12
What we do:
Little Scientists uses Lego Education tools to teach the basics of engineering and physical concepts such as forces, bracing, tension and compression, loading constraints, building to scale etc. By combining familiar Lego elements with sensors, motors and microprocessors, children can explore everything from basic pulleys and belts to motion control and computer programming.
Coding is a 21st-century skill that constitutes a completely different empowered relationship with technology and supports various skills, such as logical thinking, communication, team working, creativity, or even mathematics proficiency. At Little Scientists we believe that the best way to learn is through structured play. This is especially true for young children which is why we coding through games. From OSMO to Scratch and Java, here's our list of top coding tools used in out workshops and camps:
Our Science Clubs are packed full of exciting science experiments that introduce children to a wide range of science topics, from chemistry, physics, biology to engineering, geology, astronomy, scientific history and much more!
Through our bespoke science-based programs we develop personal confidence and self-esteem. We promote creative thinking, teamwork, imagination and problem-solving abilities. We aim to teach children "how to think…. rather than, what to think."
