Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

Jam-jam paling menyenangkan dalam minggu anak Anda

"Saya mengacungkan jempol. Linkungannya sangat kondusif, para pengajar berpengetahuan, ramah dan mudah didekati. Terakhir tapi tidak kalah penting, saya terkesan atas apa yang mereka telah pelajari dalam kurun waktu yang singkat."

"Adam sangat menikmati dirinya sendiri selama camp 5 hari. Dia meminta untuk datang ke kelas lebih awal dan ketika dia pulang, dia melanjutkan proyek coding-nya setelah makan malam. Saya tidak pernah melihatnya sangat serius terhadap sesuatu sebelumnya."

"Anak 8 tahun saya menyukai kelasnya dan terus bercerita tentang betapa serunya kelas tersebut. Saya pikir dia juga bangga bahwa dia dapat membuat permainan yang memotivasi diri sendiri. Sebelum tidur pada Jumat malam kemarin, dia bilang "saya harap ada kelas di hari esok!"
