Week & Date
Topic of Discussion
One Nation, One Singapore
What does Singapore mean to me and my family?
National Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate Singapore’s birthday than to create our very own NDP parade of colourful floats.
When did you last have an adventure and why did it leave such an impression on you?
An A-Maze-ing Adventure
Mazes can be lots of fun, especially when making 3D versions out of recycled materials.
Home Sweet Home
Do you help out around the house doing chores? How can you contribute to making your home a beautiful place to live in?
Storing It Away
Transform recycled materials into usable storage spaces.
Home Is Where The Heart Is
Family is important. What are the like and dislikes of each family member? To understand them is to love them more.
Build A Frame
Treasure your special moments with your family members more with a self designed photo frame.
To Teacher With Love
We celebrate Teacher’s Day by remembering these special people in our lives. Which teacher inspires you the most and why?
The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword
Teachers are never short of pens, or pencils for that matter. Give your teacher a gift to treasure by designing a one-of-a-kind stationery holder.
Saving For A Rainy Day
Why is it important to save and do you have any tips to share on how you save your money?
You Can Bank On This
Create a piggy bank that does much more than help store away your allowance for a rainy day.
Once Upon A Time
We all love stories. They can make us laugh, cry or gasp in horror. Share your favourite story and let’s create some new ones together.
A Bookworm’s Best Friend
Books can be displayed prominently in your home or study with the help of a stand. How much weight can your bookstand carry and can you think of more uses for your creation?
Have A Seat
Thinking about others and their needs is an essential part of inventing and innovation. Whether it’s the disabled or the elderly, or even your family member, we can make a difference in their lives by creating something that they can find useful.
Putting extra thought into designing a piece of furniture makes it not just unique but also useful for the person in mind. Who would you like to design this for and how would it make his/her life better?

This is a 4 Day non-residential camp that will provide a creative platform for kids to turn entrepreneurs during the holidays. Invention challenges will help expand their minds to think out of the box while team effort and collaboration is required to turn a simple idea into a marketing plan or business proposal. Parents are not left out too.
There will be an Investors Fair at the end of the camp and parents will be invited to turn investor for the afternoon, going round the different booths to sample and try out the different inventions and provide objective feedback to our young entrepreneurs.
