Fun learning at Imagin8ors open house

Have you heard of Imagin80rs? Imagin8ors is an Education Technology Startup that seeks to reimagine learning. Their activities always encourage creativity thinking with loads of parent and child bonding.

Last weekend we attended their May Open House at The Meeting Point located at JTC Launchpad. The moment we stepped in, we were greeted by smiley and cheerful members of their team. The event started with a quick and easy to follow explanation on how to get started and what to look out for at the open house.

Smarties couldn’t wait to get hands on with the materials available after the explanation.

We “took off” with the board game where we have to create our own characters, obstacles, treasures, etc. It felt like a manual computer game.

After the board game, we went exploring other stations. We found a table of non toxic plastic which the team is experimenting with. Smarties got to touch, feel and even shaped the plastic which ever way they want.

Next stop, we explored the drone. Smarties were very excited as they get to gyro control and perform block programming.  Mei mei got to design her landing station for the drone too! There was always someone available to guide the little ones and the no one get lost in any of the activities.

The final station was the Light Costume. No, we didn’t get to wear anything but we did get to put on LED lights on our body and started drawing in a dark “cave”. What the smarties did in the “cave” were being projected out and parents to have a good view of it. Parents can join in too!

When smarties were done and out of the “cave”, they get to see what they did as well. It was really cool!openhouse13

We had a great time at the open house with both adults and kids fully “entertained” with the technology and concepts available for everyone to explore. It’s definitely a good way to nurture the imagination and creativity of each child, and also to learn, think, apply and see the effect immediately. Smarties were really awed by the activities at the open house.

Imagin8ors conducts open house every once a month on a Saturday. If you are interested in joining their future events/activities/open house, do keep a look out on their FB page. Do remember to say hi to us if you see us there too! 🙂

I am a busy mummy of 2 wonderful kids. Their thirst for learning has made me busy researching and making learning resources/materials for them. Most of the time will be according to the topics that they have requested. Otherwise, I will randomly pick a topic and create the materials for them. Most of the time, the materials will include right brain training as well. From them, I get to learn a lot too! However, material preparation is quite a challenge! It will even be more challenging if you are a working parent! Here, I would love to share what we have done and hope busy parents out there will find our materials useful for their little one. If you have any queries/comments or if you have any topics that you would like to cover with your little one(s), do drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can :) Our mission is to find, discover and reveal the fun of kids learning! Drop us a message if you are interested in any of our materials. Let's make learning fun!
