The Experimenters

Weekly Architecture and Design Course

(for 10 – 12 years old)

Equip yourself with creative and design thinking techniques and turn your ideas into powerful showcases. ✨

Designed for children 10-12 years old

The Experimenters programme (Module 3A.1) offers a rich set of exciting and challenging architecture projects that examine design and technology from different viewpoints. The holistic activities encourage the practice of higher order thinking skills (HOT) and study subjects such as math, history, geography and biology. The concept of sustainable development will be introduced in this module.

In Arkki's The Experimenters, the pupils will dive into the world of architecture and design through studying objects, materials as well as larger entities. From creating a marble track tower to optical illusions and nature-inspired designs, the students will learn various techniques of design, creative thinking and building with different model materials and tools.

Over the course period, the pupils will be guided through a deeper level of critical thinking to process, produce, present and appraise. The space to experiment and re-imagine solutions will deepen their knowledge of STEAM, Humanities and Social Science subjects, at the same time, foster complex problem-solving skills through architecture.

This course also aims to strengthen pupils’ communication skills, leadership, expression of thoughts and help them develop a stronger relationship with the natural environment.

Witness knowledge in action! Our award winning creative programme infuses the application of STEAM subjects [Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture/Art, Mathematics], Humanities and Social Sciences with situation-based projects and support the development of innovation skills and competencies. You will enjoy the experiential learning, problem-solving process, collaboration and working through the creative process of building and environment design.
  • Get creative,
  • Unlock your critical thinking skills,
  • Have fun and
  • Bring your models home!

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.
