STEM HOLIDAY CLUBS

Exposure to STEM related concepts is key to promoting a love for Science and Technology, but also enables children to become more confident in these fields. We believe that every child has an innate ability to grasp and understand complex Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics concepts.

Our STEM Holiday Clubs are designed to allow children to explore STEM topics with a fun, interactive, and hands-on approach, while incorporating experimentation, song and play. The clubs explore a different topic each day and typically run for between 1 and 2 weeks every major school holiday. We invite your child to join the fun at the Blairgowrie Recreation centre. See below for further details on our latest/upcoming STEM Holiday Clubs.

 

OUR OBJECTIVES:

74% of South African companies struggle to fill engineering roles and less than 10% of young women are interested in STEM careers! We face an unprecedented need to change stereotypes and our aim is to equip our children with the skills required to be relentless in the pursuit of knowledge and learning so as to stay relevant in our current Digital Age. We want to change those stats.

 

STRUCTURE AND TIMETABLE

We will not be having our usual June-July STEM Holiday Program, as we are training our Robotics students this winter for the World Robotics Olympiad and RoboWars.

Our next STEM Fun Holiday Club will run during the August  and December school holidays. See below for further details:

Our STEM Fun program is made up of 5 or 10 days of activities. Each day is completely self-contained, so kids can attend any day(s) of interest to them:

Date Day Theme Description
 Mon: tbc  Air Blasters  Build Air cannons and a fart generator
 Tues: tbc  Riveting Robotics  Build and Code a robot
 Wed: tbc  Chemistry is Cool  Explore molecular chemistry through icy cold experiments!
 Thurs:tbc  Palatable Printing  Explore 3D printing while designing your very own 3D print
 Fri: tbc  Dino Math  Mathematics with a prehistoric twist

Each day includes:

  • Hands-on experiments and learning activities
  • Fun, educational songs
  • A snack of sandwiches, juice and fruit
  • A photo of the child, specific to the theme of the day.
