AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES

Our activity classes are designed to give children the platform for hands-on learning of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) concepts.  Every session is planned in a manner that children have the opportunity to learn the concept as well as build models with LEGO and other material. Creativity and teamwork are an essential part of all our programs.

We have centres in Tardeo, Cuffe Parade, Nepean Sea Road, Worli, Dadar East, and Khar West.



Toddler Scientists (TODS) (Ages 3.5 to 4 years)

  • Children use LEGO, Cubetto and other material to learn simple science and engineering concepts and get introduced to coding

The course is designed to get young hands becomes comfortable with small LEGO blocks through fun and age-appropriate activities such as patterns, life-cycles, numbers, alphabets and animals. Children will also get introduced to coding and programming with our friendly, wooden robots, KIBO and Cubetto.

Over the weeks, children will cover a variety of learning concepts. With this we hope to create a more holistic and fun experience for children, and also help them build upon 21st century life skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking.

Children will also create their own stories with LEGO, based on different themes. They will separate their stories in beginning, middle and end, also learning to create structure to stories.

In each one hour session, there is discussion of the topic, building and/or programming of the models and then each child will explain what they have built and learned during that session. Some sessions will involve team work and others will be individual builds. But, in each turn we wish to focus deeply on creativity and imagination, and problem-solving ability, and hence we avoid giving building instructions to children.

With this program, children will develop the following skills

  • Fine motor skills
  • Introduction to coding
  • Logical thinking
  • Translating creativity and imagination into three dimensional objects
  • Problem solving skills
  • Communication skills

Robotics and Coding with KIBO, Cubetto & LEGO (KCL) (Ages 4 to 6 years)

  • Children use LEGO, Cubetto and KIBO to learn simple, age-appropriate, science, engineering, robotics and coding concepts.

Over the course of each 9-week session, children will learn a variety of concepts through a combination of KIBO, Cubetto and LEGO.

  • Children learn coding fundamentals with Cubetto. Cubetto is a friendly wooden robot and is programmed to move with blocks. This screen-free method results in a programming language that you can touch!
  • KIBO is a screen-free introduction to robotics, using a wooden robot, programming blocks, as well as sensors. Children can learn various concepts through this fun robot.
  • LEGO is a tool that can be used by itself or along with both, Cubetto and KIBO.

Over the weeks, children will cover a variety of learning concepts. With this we hope to create a more holistic and fun experience for children, and also help them build upon 21st century life skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking.

  1. Science – This includes topics such as life cycle of a frog and vehicles. Children will translate their learning into 3D models of their own without instructions.
  2. Engineering – Children will build mechanical objects such as ziplines and windmills, some with instructions and some as challenges without instructions. These are the stepping stones to understand how the world around us works.
  3. Social studies – As children build things such as map of their classroom and sceneries of various places, they translate their understanding of what they see into 3D objects.
  4. Stories with LEGO – Children will create their own stories with LEGO, based on different themes. They will separate their stories in beginning, middle and end, also learning to create structure to stories. The stories can also be converted into a story book on LEGO software.

In each one hour session, there is discussion of the topic, building and/or programming of the models and then each child will explain what they have built and learned during that session. Some sessions will involve team work and others will be individual builds. But, in each turn we wish to focus deeply on creativity and imagination, and problem-solving ability, and hence we avoid giving building instructions to children.

With this program, children will develop the following skills

  • Fundamentals of coding
  • Importance of sequencing
  • Logical thinking
  • Scientific method of investigation
  • Translating creativity and imagination into three dimensional objects
  • Problem solving skills
  • Communication skills

Robotics with LEGO (Ages 6 to 8 and 8+ years)

  • Using LEGO’s robotics sets, build objects with motors and sensors and program them to move.

What is Robotics?
We use LEGO’s introductory robotics set called WeDo to teach children how to create objects with motors and sensors, and then program them to perform specific tasks. Our robotics classes are divided into:

Junior Robotics with LEGO WeDO (Ages 6 to 8 years)
Children use LEGO’s introductory robotics set to learn the basic of motors, sensors and programming. In each turn children will build their own robot using the WeDo set, and program it on a tablet to move. Each turn is 1 hour.

Senior Robotics with LEGO Mindstorms EV3 (Ages 8+ years)
Children use LEGO’s most popular robotics set, Mindstorms, to learn more advanced building as well as programming. The sessions are longer, for 1.5 hours each.

Our Method
Children build and program their own objects each class, a new project every week. Every fourth class, we present a challenge for children to solve, to build something on their own, without instructions, applying what they learned in the previous three classes.

We break the programs into multiple levels to support increasing complexity of building, use of different types of sensors, as well as programming.

How does it help?

  • Challenges given to children enhance problem solving skills. It also helps children use their creativity and imagination.
  • Programming enhances the ability to think logically – an important life skill
  • LEGO makes learning fun – learn while you play
