Maker follows the main principles of STEAM education, which require that abstract scientific laws must be put into practice. Put simply, kids need to get ‘hands on’ to fully understand how things work. Consequently, children at Maker get regular opportunities to assemble a variety of mechanisms under the guidance of their mentors. In addition, great attention is paid to the creative component so that children do not just collect ready-made models but also invent something new. The development of creative abilities is stimulated by drawing and music, which are also given considerable attention in the Maker.
In addition, Maker offers weekly lessons with a frequency of 1-3 times a week. Thematic blocks are formed into 4-week courses that allow children in two age groups, 6-9 and 10-13 years old, to study the following areas:
- Engineering and circuit modelling
- Programming and 3D modelling
At the same time, children will develop creativity, imagination, and an innovative approach to problem-solving. Thanks to the practical orientation of the programme, students will understand how to apply the acquired skills outside of Maker in their everyday lives.
