Description

Overview:

The Young Maker series #1: Tinker teaches children of age 9 - 15 various making skills through mini projects. Children will then apply the various making skills to complete a self-directed creative project. Concepts including maker mindset, making tools and design thinking will also be introduced throughout the series. Great starter class for children who are interested in inventing, creating and tinkering. A certificate will be issued upon completion of the series.

「年輕創客系列#1: 小工匠 」會教授9歲以上的小朋友不同的DIY技巧和全人發展概念,當中包括創客思維、創客工具運用投巧和設計思維。在課程中,孩子們將運用各種製作技巧來完成一個自主創作的項目。作為一個專為小朋友以設的引導課程,這個課程特別適合一些對發明、製作及科學有興趣的小朋友。完成課程的小朋友會被頒贈證書去表揚他們的學習成果。
