It was a chilly winter afternoon when I was visiting a friend’s house. As I absentmindedly left the window ajar, my friend exclaimed, “Close the window! You’re letting the cold in!” We shared a good laugh, but it got me thinking: is cold something that actually “comes in”, or are we, in fact, letting the heat out?

Imagine a vast, shimmering lake, brimming with life. Birds soar above, fish dart below the water’s surface, and children play gleefully along the shore. Fast forward a few decades, and that same spot has become a barren desert, with cracked earth where water once flowed.

When your child first learns about cells, it’s easy to marvel at these tiny building blocks of life. Cells are where the magic of life happens, and recent scientific advancements have put a particular kind of cellular machinery – mRNA – under the limelight. Let’s embark on a journey to understand this exciting domain of science, and how it’s revolutionizing the world of medicine, particularly vaccines.

Unraveling the difference between plant and animal cells isn’t just fascinating; it’s foundational in STEM. By understanding these basic cellular differences, we lay the groundwork for more complex scientific explorations. And it’s through questions like your child’s that we rediscover the wonder of the world around us.

See Possibilities

Charge up the excitement of students through intriguing demonstrations that get them thinking of the phenomenon behind how and why things happen, then introduce Science concepts or explain Science themes with the assistance of interactive videos from STEMWerkz Channel so students are able to see the relevance between both activities. 


Close the loop between each classroom lesson

Have students to continue their exploration on Science themes using the guided learning journey in STEMWerkz Quests at home, or in their free time learn through play in the game-based town building zone, STEAMValley! Learning can happen beyond the classroom – it can happen anywhere!


Students are given exposure to various Science themes and hands-on investigations to pique their curiousity.

  • States of Matter: Explore how different kinds of matter exist and can be described and classified by its observable properties.


  • Energy and its forms: Investigate how sound can make matter vibrate, and vibrating matter can make sound.


  • Forces: Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence on how each force acts on one particular object and has both strength and a direction
  • Force, Motion and Energy: Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.


  • Energy and its forms: Investigate it energy is present whenever there are moving objects, sound, light, or heat.


  • The Sun’s Rays: Light and its Effects: Find out if energy can be transferred from place to place by electric currents, and if it can then be used locally to produce motion, sound, heat, or light.

Explore Concepts

Build upon students’ foundation of Science with problem-based projects. Following The Framework (Robert H. Tai, Associate Professor of Education, UVA’s School of Education and Human Development), from identifying problems to designing solutions, we motivate students to practice ownership and stewardship while applying their Science and Engineering knowledge to bring their projects to fruition.


These projects are designed alongside the teaching team and aligned to curriculum, where opportunities are made to allow hands-on tinkering, independent research work, tagged with guidance from teachers to reinforce Science concepts where necessary. 

The structure of the Explore Concepts project leverages on the Engineering Design Process, which enables students to formulate different approaches to everyday dilemmas. This process is provides support in creative problem solving and decision making, encouraging students to continuously evaluate which approach is likely to bring the greatest success.
