Big Builders For Young Learners

Book Now!

Big Builders is a programme for children in nursery, primary 1 and primary 2. We aim to get our young children excited and inspired by science early in their life and to start an ongoing curiosity about their world.

We use K’NEX bricks which are larger than LEGO and easier for our young engineers to handle. Children develop their tactile, motor, and spatial skills as they build their models and learn science and engineering principles. These programs are conducted in small group settings to ensure that each engineer gains the intended knowledge and experience and that we can give the children plenty of time to ask questions
