Wow it works had its first event at Rochester Mall on 21st December 2012 . Most people may not know where is Rochester mall but its at Buona Vista , Singapore .
The “wow it works” program has a close relevancy to the syllabus dictated by MOE Singapore . We will use the “walkalong glider” as an example how this project can be fitted into MOE Singapore requirements as “Inquiry based education” for kids .
The Wow it Works program is an enrichment program for kids . The Wow it works program is NOT an ordinary enrichment program that you find locally in Singapore . It is more than just a Science enrichment program .
Kids are naturally curious . They love to take things apart and to find out how things work . As they are growing up , they want to learn more about the world around them – the mysterious sun that goes hiding at night , the wind that they cannot see but can feel as she blows on the face , the airplanes that are so huge and yet can fly . They are so magical but yet , amazing and fascinating to our kids .
Wow it works | Help kids discover
The WOW it WORKS program is specially tailored to help kids learn about the world around them and to encourage them to discover how things work . The process of learning is to really getting the kids to apply what they have learned by designing and building models so that they can physically see and experience what works and what did not work (and why) . The wow it works program gives kids the opportunity to design , construct and think , with guidance from the trainers .
