Studio 5/6, an ICT maker space initiative by the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) aimed at nurturing youth as digital learners by sharpening their 21st century learning skills, will be hosting free online workshops for kids from July 5 to 30, 2020.
Studio 5/6’s young makers will take a deeper dive into a project based programme this summer and develop their digital skills during this month’s campaign titled ‘Digital Champions Camp’.
“We have constructed different digital series workshops for children between 7-10 and 11-14 years old to get involved with a specific series to gain a deeper understanding, including Minecraft Coding, Star Wars Prototyping, Digital Circuits and Exploring Arduino.
“These project-based workshops are centred on tackling various digital challenges. Engaging children with the depth and mastery of a specific subject will provide them with a meaningful purpose to apply to their learning,” Studio 5/6 said in a statement.
The statement added: “We offer technology and allied equipment support for hands-on learning opportunities. Here, youth can develop their problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, and innovation skills. This will also develop young people’s knowledge of technology and help them to become future creators of technology.”
Studio 5/6 said the participants will be able to select a series then take part in workshops across four days, culminating with a project on the fifth day using the skills that they have learned. Once the participants have completed the final project, it will be evaluated, and they will receive certificates for their participation.
