How to Equip My Child with Skills for a Tech-Centric Future


In this upcoming meetup, we'll be looking at the theme "Preparing My Child for 2027". What knowledge, skills and attitudes would the next generation have to learn, and what can I do as a parent to nurture my child's interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM)?

How to Equip My Child with Skills for a Tech-Centric Future

We'll start off with a short sharing on how the economy of the future is going to be like when a wave of disruption hits traditional businesses. We'll then hear from a panel of parents on what they are currently doing to prepare their kids for the new economy.

Finally, we'll hear from some of our very own young CEOs, who will pitch their start-up and social enterprise ideas, before taking a break to chit-chat over tea.

Come join us for 2 hours on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and meet other parents of young entrepreneurs as well!

What is RPN?

We're a group of parents, and our kids are interested in start-ups, tech, design and entrepreneurship. Each month, we get together to discuss ideas and activities to support our kids. We weave entrepreneurship into our parenting to teach them values and skills.

Collectively, we’re known as the Reactor Parent Network (RPN), so called because when the right elements are brought together in the right environment, a reaction occurs.

Through this Meetup, we hope to nurture our kids and support them in their personal and professional development. As a parent, we hope that our child will grow to be independent, resilient, and above all, contributing members to society.

Our community will meet up regularly to share ideas and best parenting practices. These 2-hour RPN Meetups may include guest speakers, industry representatives from start-ups and SMEs, and/or learning journeys to places of interests.
