The Explorers Weekly Classes (September 18 - November 6)

The Explorers

Weekly Architecture and Design Course

(for 7 – 9 years old)
Nurturing creativity, higher order thinking, resilience and other essential 21st century skills through architecture and design activities! ✨
Designed for children 7-9 years old

The Explorers programme (Module 1A.1) is a starter course for 7-9 year old children that introduces the foundational elements of architecture and the process of creative and critical thinking.

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 pupils will acquire better sensing of their surroundings from colors, shapes to structures and space. Critical thinking skills develop here as the pupils review alternative theories and find different perspectives to problems. The pupils are guided to observe the surroundings and use different senses.

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.
