Imagine if you can create anything you dream of. Every artist, sculptor, and designer knows the magic of creation begins from the moment an idea takes root. Kids are chockfull of ideas, but ideas can only go so far.
Imagine what happens if we empower them with a tool they can use to turn ideas into reality?
3D modeling translates an idea into a computer aided design, before a 3D printer takes the design and prints by adding materials layer by layer to form a shape. Creating something has never been that easy. It's almost magic.
From printing your own toys, to a colourful model house shaped like a dinosaur - the only limit is your imagination.
Saturday Kids takes a design-based approach that emphasises digital creation. By making it fun and engaging, kids receive a well-rounded education in computational thinking that is more meaningful than simply playing with gadgets.
What They Say About Us
"... My children, ages 10 and 7, loved the beginner Scratch course with Gavin. They both found the class creative and interesting, and I was impressed by the games they managed to create. Most importantly, they're now excited by the world of programming. Highly recommended!" - Maya Thiagarajan
"... Adeline has gone above and beyond the call of duty to enable my son to attend a one off session as part of the ArchiFest 2015. It took that single session to get him hooked, today he could not wait to show me what he had done in class, he is by all accounts a minecraft freak who spends hours playing both Roblocks (and I probably got that incorrect) and Minecraft... and for the first time he is not running to play other people's creations but his own... I am absolutely delighted in the 'mindset' change in my son attitude... I just wish you ran more classes.. so that we would have more options.. :) Thank you for a wonderful and exciting enrichment program that is so much more than academics.. its fun but for me as a mum, an important future skill set for my son. Can't wait to enroll him in the next course.. :)" - Emma
"... I have been meaning to write to you to let you know that my son loved his workshop with Saturday kids in June and I will be enrolling my daughter too for the beginners course that you are doing in October :)" - Divya
