Create Lab inspires children to create with technology and develop computational thinking skills - attributes that are key to becoming 21st Century Leaders. Our joy comes from encouraging children to be curious, creative, problem solvers, and collaborators.
Our partnerships with leading academics from top global institutions (the University of Oxford, National University of Singapore, George Washington University, and University College London) enable us to deliver programs, around coding, robotics, design thinking, and STEM, that foster our goal.
The courses are taught using age-appropriate technology platforms. During early years (5-7 years of age) we keep the pedagogy screenless and children learn science and technology concepts through Tinker Lab and Beebot Robots. For Tweens (8 + years of age) we run the best coding courses where they can develop their own stories, game, and apps using MIT's programming tools like Scratch(R) and AppInventor (R). Older Children (12+ years of age) can engage in our world-class courses to learn Python, Web Design (using HTML and Java), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML).
Providing quality student engagement and learning is at the heart of everything we think & do
Continuous research and dialogues with experts, drives curriculum development and training
Learning and teaching are fun when students take ownership. We encourage open-ended creativity and allow students to explore
