Terms 1,2 and 3:  Academic Year 2022 /2023 Saturdays in Dubai

This academic year, we're delighted to launch our STEM Saturday camps.  Our camps are designed for children aged 4 to 14 and are delivered through our in-class programs at the Rove Hotel in Downtown Dubai and Studio One Hotel (near Arabian Ranches).

A 90 Minute Program Each Saturday for 10 weeks starting on 17 September 2022 followed by progressive programs in terms 2 and 3.

Our students enjoy in-depth learning on emerging technologies such as 3D Modeling & Printing, Robotics, Coding, and Game Design with our line-up of various courses.

Each course ensures a gradual progression from basic to advanced projects through a period of 10 sessions. Children get to work on a new project every session with new educational topics:

  • Little Explorers for 4 - 6 year olds
    • Saturdays: (10am-11:30am) Code Jungle - Fundamentals of coding through storytelling
    • Saturdays: (12pm-1:30pm) Playful Robotics :  Robotics with Lego-education tools

Friday & Saturday Programs - This Term's Schedule

Here is the schedule for this term's Saturdays program starting on 16 September 2022

Little Explorers Program - Ages 4 to 6

Saturday from 10am to 11:30am & 12pm to 1:30pm

Rove Hotel Downtown & Studio One Hotel

Our Little Explorers program is perfect for inquisitive, younger children who enjoy hands-on activities and are intrigued by technology.  For this term, we have the following schedule of activities:

Little Explorers Program

Description

Time & Location

Code Jungle:  Coding with Scratch Jr.

10 Weeks

The little explorers learn the basics of coding with a combination of an introductory programming language, Scratch Jr., a small plug-and-play robot. With Scratch Jr., children will learn to create their own interactive games and stories. While you may think your child may be too young to learn coding, the hardware-software resources that we use, together with our curriculum design, makes it very easy for the little ones to understand concepts while having fun. Our qualified and experienced trainers ensure that children are engaged and understand the basics and core concepts of coding.

Every Saturday

10am - 11:30am

Rove & Studio One

17 Sep to 19 Nov

Playful Robotics:  Robotics with Spike Essential

10 Weeks

 

With the fun element of LEGO blocks and the interactive drag-and-drop coding feature of SPIKE software, the little ones will delve into the world of robotics. Children will be exposed to computer science and the design engineering process using everyday themes and storytelling techniques. Children will also develop their literacy and mathematical skills along with socio-emotional skills as they turn concepts into reality.

Every Saturday

12pm - 1:30pm

Rove & Studio One

17 Sep to 19 Nov

Junior Program - Ages 7 to 9

Our annual weekend program for Juniors is designed to provide skill sets that will help them apply their knowledge in the real world. Each program follows a progression of basic to advanced. All of our programs are based on a differentiated learning experience wherein children are given tasks based on their abilities and support is provided to the students wherever they require.

Develop your child’s engineering design and robotics skills as they investigate ways of defining problems, brainstorming solutions, and testing and refining prototypes.

This term we have 3 different options for our Junior students:  Design Thinking Lab,  Robotics Squad and Tech Whiz

Saturday from 10am to 11:30am & 12pm to 1:30pm

Course Fees & Information

Students broaden their scientific, coding, design and engineering understanding through our hands on exciting robotics activities, learn the logic of computer programming through interactive software on touch screen laptops and get to grips with robotic technology.

Collaboration and Communication is at the heart of each STEM for Kids program!

We strongly believe that the next generation of scientists and entrepreneurs will require an array of communication skills that are far more advanced than what many of us are used to today. Self confidence through public speaking used to be an important component of a classic education, and we are bringing that back. We therefore encourage each student to present their work to an audience of peers.

 

Our Teachers
Our experienced teachers have a wealth of experience in both teaching and STEM related learning and have been trained to US standards.

 

Fees:  Payment is for 10 weeks of the program (1 Term and 90 minutes per week).  If you child starts after week 1, a pro-rated fee will be applied.

  • All Programs: AED 1,250 per child.
