Each of our sessions will lead you and your child through the creative process.
Whet your apetite
Each time you will learn something new. We keep this introduction short and exciting, just to get gears in your kids brain working. Each time we expose them to an emerging technology and its application to help them find their passion.
The big question
Next we present you with a challenge in the form of a short, animated video. The characters in the story face a problem - related to the topic you chose.
Maybe they are sick and the nearest hospital is too far; or perhaps they are trying to save endangered animals from poaching.
These are adaptations of the world's real, global issues in a kid friendly way.
A structured way through the creative process.
The design thinking process starts with empathy: relating to the characters in the story. Your children will work together with you and other children online to discover what problems the characters are facing. This builds their emotional intelligence.
Then ask the classic How might we...? question and define what needs to be created to solve the problem. Once you know what to create brainstorm with other children online.
Finally, using your tool of choice build with your child a prototype of your invention and share it with the group
Creativity, innovation is a skill that can be built. Our facilitator will guide you through the creative process and teach you a new tool, technique or method every time that you can use in a particular phase of the design thinking process. As you go through the steps several times in multiple sessions your kids with learn valuable skills that she can use for a long time.
To conclude the session - while your are still working on the prototype - the facilitator will also link what you invented to real life, existing innovations. These might be futuristic but they are all existing inventions to show and implant in your kid how much is possible with care and knowledge of emerging technologies.
The facilitator also ensures that it's safe for children to connect and share video online.
