Can your child come up with the solution to encouraging exercise or healthy eating? We certainly think so. After all, we have guided over a hundred children to create solutions for these problems over the last two years.
We created a course that will have children working together to create new solutions for real world problems and make them a reality using Littlebits. Littlebits magnetically snap together like lego to allow students to easily create smart electronics without knowledge in coding or hardware creation.
Working in groups, the students will interview people on the street to understand the target audience. An important part of Human Centered Design, a methodology created by Stanford University and used throughout the globe, the course will go through interview and questioning techniques to extract insights.
Using Littlebits, students will create working prototypes that tackles the inconveniences of the target audience.
- By the end of the course, your child will be able to understand the basics of how electronics work.
- Your child will be using design thinking throughout the entire workshop. User empathy uncovers insights through interviews, and create solutions.
- The chance to share your child’s creation with the world on the LittleBits idea portal.
My child doesn't even know what design thinking is.
Can he/she cope with it?
Yes! That's what we're here for. While Design Thinking is commonly used for adults, we've seen many children cope perfectly well. Besides, we will make sure that no child is left behind.
Great! What should my child bring?
All materials will be provided, so your child can arrive empty handed. However, if your child can't stand wintery conditions or parched throats, we recommend bringing along a jacket and/or drinks and snacks respectively.
Will my child be able to bring home the prototype?
Your child can bring home the prototype that he/she has worked on, minus the Lego and Littlebits components. Other children would want to play with them too! However, if you would wish to purchase a set of LittleBits, do contact us and we will make the preperations to send it to you, or for you to pick up on the day of the class.
What is the refund policy?
The class will proceed with a minimum of 4 students. Refunds will be made accordingly and we will inform you in advance if the workshop is cancelled. All other refunds will be on a case-by-case basis. If you are unable to make it for a class, we are happy to slot your child into our other sessions.
