What Schools Don't Teach

Description

This June, let your kids embark on a five day journey that will bring them through a discovery of their own interests and passions and four different professions: entrepreneurship, design, marketing and software engineering.

  • Date: 19 - 23 June 2017
  • Ages: 14 - 18
  • Time : 0900 - 1630 Daily
  • Hands-on learning, projects and industry visits


What to Expect:

  • Career discovery through talks and hands-on learning
  • Learning through projects and presentation
  • Skills Development (Media/Design/Web)
  • Industry visit and mentorship

What you will learn:

  • Logical Thinking
  • Problem Solving
  • Design Thinking
  • Presentation Skills
  • Collaboration
  • Practical skills for the future


Here's what you can expect for each day:

passion discovery

Passion Discovery (19 June) - Mandatory: Kickstart your child's five day journey through dialogue sessions with peers and working adults, and activities, such as the use of self-assessment tools. We will help them uncover their own thoughts and ideas, and discover what they are truly passionate for. They will learn other useful career skills like Networking, and Portfolio-Building so that they can make the most out of the following days.


entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship (20 June) : Learn more about business development and gain the opportunity to come up with a new business idea, as well as how to make an impactful business presentation. The day ends off with an industry visit to The Hangar, home to start-ups and entrepreneurs at NUS.


design

Design (21 June): Be introduced to user experience and design principles. Making use of these principles and skills learnt, your kids will have the opportunity to put these into practice by designing a new product, website, or application with the guidance and mentorship of professional designers.


marketing

Marketing (22 June): Learn film and media techniques that are often used in marketing campaigns and understand more about the thought process that goes behind the countless public campaigns and advertisements we see all around us today. Leveraging on the skills taught through both the Design and Marketing sessions, your kids will get to work in groups to come up with their own marketing campaign.


software

Software Engineering (23 June): Get introduced to the world of programming and understand more about the process that goes behind the development of websites and mobile applications. Your kids will have the opportunity to build their very own website, and host their online portfolio.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. If my child is under the age of 14 years old, can he/she attend this programme?

Students under 14 years old may have a difficulty keeping up with the pace of the lessons and the activities that they will be involved in. Therefore, we would only recommend this programme to students aged 14 and above.


2. What does my child need to bring for the programme?

We recommend that your child bring along a laptop if possible so that they can bring their lessons home with them. Otherwise, we will have laptops for their use on premises.


3. Are there any compulsory days that my child has to attend?

In the event that you have purchased a 2 or 3 Day Pass for your child, the first day of the event is compulsory for your child to attend. The first day is structured to give them a better picture of what they can expect over the remainder of the course and also to allow your child to discover his/her passion and interests.

Aside from the first day, your child is free to attend any day of the programme that he/she prefers.


4. Can my child bring home his/her work after the programme has ended?

Definitely! One of the main outcomes that we hope to acheive through this programme is to build up your child's portfolio for future course and job applications.


Please Note:

Throughout the event, we will be taking pictures and videos of the youths as they are engaging in the various programme activities. By registering your child in this programme, parents/guardians are granting Praxium the right to use the youth's finished work, pictures and videos of the youth, and other material for company purposes. These purposes include the publicising or promotion of Praxium's future programmes and the youth's achievements on Praxium's website.
