Instead of the traditional sit- and- stare- at- the- teacher- talking routine, Whizz Kidz makes learning fun. Students are immersed into an imaginary environment and story – think role-playing games with an educational agenda. Whether they are the evil minions of a despotic scientist or idealistic creators from an ancient era, kids will never have a dull moment picking up new concepts through hands-on investigation and discussions led by experienced educators.
There are tons of exciting science camps to choose from, including Dr Franky, Dr Who, Dr Evil and Mission Impossible 2.5. Or check out the technology camps, such as Dr Droid and Dr Lego Bot, where kids can create their own robots and control them. Movie fanatics will have a blast at Whizz Kidz Of Oz where they’ll learn how movies are made. Kids can also try out 3D printing and bring a keepsake home.
