Our primary school incursions are tailored and designed for K to Year 6 students.
The STEM workshop offers a hands-on approach to get your students engaged in the learning process in a very unique way. STEM education teaches maths, geometry, expression, art, problem-solving and much more in a play-based environment.
during the incursion?
Our staff will bring thousands of magnetic blocks and provide stimulating, creative and fun activities.
JC Ingenium encourages learning the fundamental concepts of engineering and math. At the same time children learn and explore the 3D version providing a deeper understanding of space and volume.
During our workshops, students develop their team building skills by working towards the common goal of building a giant structure together, the creations will then be joined together to create one large final project.
At the end of the workshop the children will help dismantle their constructions and tidy away the blocks.
JC Ingenium can cater large groups up to 50 children, however if you have more than 50 children just give us the number of students and their age range and we will tailor a program that will match your needs!
For the number of children we need a large space like a school hall or gymnasium so that children can work confidently. We also require one large table to set up the magnetic tiles and at least 3 educators from your centre to assist staff during the session (with guidance provided by our staff throughout). Our set up does not take more than 10 minutes and we arrive at least 15 minutes earlier so that the session can commence promptly.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM
This program is a recreational and educational project, which aims to awaken in children an interest in architecture, the environment, the city and sustainable development. Children will spend hours creating, dreaming, exploring, thinking, imagining and learning that building is more than just constructing a tower.
We provide 4 fun lessons of 60 minutes each.
LESSON 1: Columns and Bases - Every construction has a foundation
LESSON 2: Bridges - Circulars, upward and downward
LESSON 3: Mandalas - Scale from small to giant
LESSON 4: Building a City - 3 projects in 1
Investigate and learn to observe the environment from another perspective, through experimentation and exploration, helping to develop visual thinking.
Help towards creativity and fine motor skills by developing models and constructions, while favouring the development of memory and knowledge.
Respect the diversity of children, since the workshops are based on participation. The integration of differences between children is part of the workshops.
Learn and enjoy teamwork and collaboration, to promote mutual learning between participants and social values such as: tolerance, responsibility, effort, overcoming and patience. In the same way they will discover their personal abilities and their development, individually.
