SINGAPORE – Young children will be able to discover world-changing science in a creative way when the Science Centre’s KidStop Steam Festival for Young Learners kicks off on Thursday (Oct 8).
The four-day event till Sunday (Oct 11) is aimed at children aged three to eight, and melds virtual and on-site events at KidsStop, the Children’s Science Centre.
Steam marries the four disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (Stem) with the arts so as to foster more holistic, multidisciplinary learning, said Associate Professor Lim Tit Meng, chief executive of the Science Centre.
Virtual events include interactive storytelling and sing-along sessions, while on-site activities include a coding challenge for kids to create and protect their own moving bot, and activities around marine conservation.
An All-In “passport” for $38 per child ($5 for accompanying adults) lets children enjoy both online and on-site activities at the festival.
