“Design is all about learning from doing, that's how we evolve to the best solution.”

— TIM BROWN, DESIGN LEADER AND VISIONARY, IDEO

 
 

Our Approach

In this digital era, we are trying to encourage our youth to consume less, and create more. The 'maker' approach is to have students learn with their hands - through tinkering, making and discovering from mistakes. These practices will build students' confidence, enable them to think creatively and problem-solve, while equipping them to become future-leaders and innovators.
