The Arkki Programme

The award-winning Arkki programme is the only one in Singapore (and Asia) that offers an extensive, long-term curriculum based on architecture and design for children and youth ages 7-19. Our curriculum offers 30 modules for progressive learning, each carefully designed for the age group it caters for.
The hands-on, project-based curriculum is carefully designed to equip children and the youth with 21st century skills: creativity, complex problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and resilience.
Through ideating, planning and finally translating their ideas into 3D models and designs – the pupils will jumpstart their imagination and prove their assumptions by experimenting and testing their ideas, no matter how unusual they may sound.
The course is also designed for pupils to gain a stronger grasp of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) subjects through a series of super fun and educational projects that connect with real life challenges (e.g. from building the strongest tower, drawing inspiration from history and designing a temple façade, to designing a natural shelter for animals). It also intertwines different subjects through projects and teaches artistic methods through hands-on activities. This course enhances collaboration, communication and presentation skills of the pupil leading to the building of positive self-image and confidence.
