Students enrolled in Explorer, Maker, Technology & Engineering, will gradually gain the fundamentals knowledge in engineering, technology, creative and design. Our lessons enable the students to think from a different perspective enabling to use their imagination towards their advantage; understand how to safely handle tools and basic production skills; understand the basic engineering design process, and develop interpersonal skills such as: independence and collaboration. As a result, students gain the confidence and creativity skills which is necessary for other areas of their academic performance.
*This course is targeted for students entering grades 1-2 in September
To be able to come up with an innovative idea, and the ability to think critically to tackle real-life problems, children must first learn how to observe the world they live. They need to experience the basic knowledge and skills in different fields, so that they can gradually discover their own interests and use skills to their advantages.
In the “Explorer” course, students will be introduced to 8 different fields: as circuits, materials, and engineering, just to name a few. Our diverse course content develops the students’ fundamental skills in all the different areas of education.
The Creative Generator
*This course is targeted for students entering grade 3 in September
When a child wants to complete a project, or task, their train of thought tends to be more direct and focused. On the other hand, when adults make decisions, they are constrained by other factors such as: cost, efficiency, feasibility, and resource allocation, while a child will only have to focus on “how things work.”
Some of the questions that might go through their minds, such as: How things move from A to B? Does this apparatus spin, crawl, or senses? How many ways can we solve this problem? Innovation develops from thinking outside the box.
Students are exposed to the 8 basic machine functions in “Maker” that are used in industry today. Moreover, they will gain a deeper understanding of how materials are used with respect to their unique properties. Maker curriculum embeds eight different exclusive challenges to develop the students in the following areas: confidence, critical thinking, making techniques and problem solving
Electronics, Coding, and Robots
*This course is designed for students entering grade 4-6 in September
Contrary to the popular belief, “Technology” curriculumis not about developing a specific skill such as: connecting circuits, programming or even soldering. The curriculum aims to provide a platform for children who take an interest in working with robots, Iron Man, and remote-control racing.
“Technology” is a highly specialized curriculum. We coach in the ways that students can absorb the lesson and in-turn, apply what they have learned towards their projects. Students will use Arduino microprocessors to realize their projects. Students will understand the functions of different electronic components, programming logic and the communication between software and hardware. As a result, students are immersed in the environment that allows them to strengthen their skills and knowledge in the technology field and have fun while doing so.
Vehicle, Bike, Machine
*This course is designed for students entering grade 4-6 in September
"Mechanical engineering" exercises students’ ability to observe, think, and creating things by the operating industry standard machinery. Moreover, students will collaborate and independently build, improve, and test complex machines. Undoubtedly, engrossed in this environment broadens a child’s creative horizons while developing relative skills.
This course provides students with an extraordinary experience: properly handle professional tools and equipment, processing raw materials, creating practical projects in professional studios, and understand the working principle behind industry standard machines. Students will collaborate with peers so that they will gain the necessary hard skills and soft skills to advance in their future education paths.

Creativity and innovation are two different concepts. Creativity is about coming up with the big idea while innovation requires a specific skill set to execute a certain idea.Our philosophy is: Making is a Fun Way to be Creative. Learning at Wowkids is divided into three stages: 1.Exploring (Explorer) 2.Experience (Maker) 3.Development (Tech & Engineering).
Students enrolled in our Explorer, Maker, Tech & Engineering courses, gradually absorb the fundamentals of engineering, technology, creative design through our carefully crafted projects. The classes develop the students’ intellectual open-mindedness and imagination; master the safe handling of tools and basic production and assembly skills; develop the cognitive skills in engineering design process and cultivate the independence and collaboration. The projects itself are not the end of the finish line. Their projects are just the tools used in exercising their skills. As a result, our students gain the confidence and the mind-set to enhance their skills in other areas.
Exploreris targeted for students in grade 1 and grade 2 students that have not enrolled in our courses previously. Maker is targeted for grade 2 students that have already completed the Explorer and for students in grade 3 that have not previously enrolled in Wowkids courses. Grade 3 students that have previously enrolled in Maker can enroll in Technology and Engineering. Students in Grade 4 – 6 can enroll in Technology and Engineering without prior enrollment in Maker.
Students must be interviewed prior to enrollment. Our coaches will communicate with the children and parents and give suggestions on course selection based on the child's performance during the interview.
Due to the complex nature of the work that our employees do during working hours, we do not accept and any form of visitation without an appointment under any circumstances. Open-house dates will be notified through the official Wowkids WeChat account.
All students must pass our interview classes to enroll for September courses. During the interview process, we will assess your child(ren) based on our evaluation to determine whether he/she is the right “fit”. During our interview-admission days, you may visit the campus upon registering for our interview. Remember, registration for interview is required for visitation.
Wowkids classrooms are always conducted bilingually. The lessons are conducted in English with accompanying Mandarin Chinese explanations in specific background knowledge and underlying scientific theories.
Every week, Wowkids has a total of 8 time slots. If you are unable to come at the registered time, you may choose change classes to other time slots if there is vacancy available. If none of the time are suitable, you may choose come in during the designated make up classes on the following Wednesday at 4:30pm -6:30pm. If you do not engage in either of the options above, then it will be treated as a missed class.
Wowkids is the organizer of the international competition DFC (Design For Change) every year. All students will receive a certificate of completion upon completing a full-year course at Wowkids. Wowkids Year Book is available for purchase for all Wowkids students. The book which records children's learning progress growth, and projects for the entire school year.
