DINOMITES - Cross Curricular
Albert Einstein believed that imagination is more important than knowledge. At DinoMites, developing imagination, creativity and thinking is at the heart of all we do. Hands-on learning and experimentation are also fundamental. As we explore a broad range of themes, concepts and ideas, the DinoMites will be immersed in a rich learning experience spanning a range of curriculum areas- science, maths, language, technology, philosophy, creative arts and more.
The program will allow for flexible learning styles and will encourage the development of higher level language, thinking and communication skills.
SCISPIES - Science, Mathematics and Technology
Science is exciting – it helps explain the world as we know it and it provides us with a methodology to enhance our understanding of every aspect of the universe from the micro to the macro level. Highly able children are naturally curious - their search for knowledge and meaning, and their engagement with abstract ideas is well suited to the exploration of all areas of science, technology and mathematics.
The SciSpies club program offers a smorgasbord of hands-on learning across a range of sciences including physics, chemistry, biology, meteorology, astronomy, earth science and more, as well as some mathematics sessions. Along the way children will also have the opportunity to think and work like a scientist, proposing and testing their hypotheses via experimentation, observation and modification. Extending and challenging members’ thinking is paramount.
JUNIOR TECHNOKIDS - Technology
Do you like to know how things work? Do you love to invent and construct? Well then, Junior TechnoKids is the club for you! Junior TechnoKids will focus on all things cool and technical - robotics, electronics, programming, machine design and more! Using some great kits and other materials, members will create, construct, test and innovate as they investigate scientific principles and solve problems!
Junior TechnoKids members will learn to analyse, collaborate, persevere, take calculated risks and learn from their mistakes as they are challenged by some exciting design briefs.
