21st Century Skills
Hard skills can only take you so far. Which is why we weaved key 21st century skills into all our Mastery courses.
Problem-Solving & Innovation
Campers will learn to build and code a robot using Lego Mindstorms EV3. They will use sensors to program it to move/ stop and other movements.
Campers will learn to code using Scratch 2.0. They will be creating their own animation depicting an alternate ending of Marvel's Infinity War, and also code their own "Chase the Cheese" game.
They will learn what it means to identify problems, and come up with potential solutions. They will start pitching their ideas and form teams to create a business plan.
Today, they will go through a short session on strengths-finding, and learning how to leverage on them. They will then learn what it means to really build a business, from interviewing people, to planning their marketing strategy.
Fine-tune your proposal, put the finishing touches to your pitch, and pitch to a panel of judges! You'll end the week with lots of fun and laughter, and a better understanding of yourself and the power you have to change the world!
Our Mastery courses are jam-packed with cool projects, so that you can see your learnings come to life!
Final Young Founders Pitch
By Day 5, campers will have completed a proposal to solve a problem they want to solve. Their pitch will be recorded and selected ones will be submitted for Young Founders Summit SEA 2018.
