Learning through Making encourages young minds to investigate, inquire, and take decisions on how best to repurpose information and materials to create something new. Making also develops divergent thinking and creative skills to empower student success outside of school.
Prior to the pandemic, every Saturday, we encouraged our whole community to come together at our campus and embrace the idea of Maker. Parent Makers of ASB share their knowledge, experience, and skills with the children and encourage them to develop a Maker mindset through hands-on tinkering and creating. STEAM Maker projects weave Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math together.
At ASB, over 200 students, parents, and teachers meet one Saturday per month to explore making, learn, and have fun.
Every Spring our Middle School students embark on a week of exploration through our Studio 6 program. Students are allocated into groups and matched with an adult mentor, who will guide them through a series of workshops that are creative, hands-on and challenging. Examples of previous years’ Studio 6 activities include:
- Create a mobile library using a Mumbai rickshaw.
- Cake decorating
- Aqua Robotics
- Flavour Diaries cooking experience
- Black Box theatre
