Kids return to school after long holiday

07 September 2015, 17:23

Lagos - Holiday Summer Camps are over as schools resume a new academic session on Monday after parents shopped for back-to-school items for their kids.

While Kids prepared to return to School for the 2015/16 school year, one Summer Camp kept its participants dreaming for a long time.

The Summer of Dreams Camp, organized by Inspiring Aspirations Media stood out of the pack. Participants were introduced to STEAM Education Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and the Skills of the Future outside the four walls of the classroom.

Subjects and activities included Robotics, Design thinking, Coding, Financial Literacy, Mathletics, Arts and Crafts, Creative Writing/Poetry, 3D Puzzles, Fitness & Dance, Play at the Park and Fun Days at Lekki Conservation Centre in Lagos and Ice Cream Factory Lagos. One of the attractions for the Kids was making their own Mini Cooper Cars with Cardboard.

According to the organisers, Inspiring Aspirations Media, Summer of Dreams was set up to nurture a new generation of creative thinkers as well as address gaps in the school curriculum. The yearly event is designed to inspire creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration & teamwork, awareness, digital literacy and global citizenship in Kids.

In their words, “we take kids on a self-directed learning adventure outside the four walls of the classroom. The kids are exposed to various learning materials and experiences which help them think, learn and do better in school and life. We are spurring a love for learning, imagination, innovation and play.”

The organisers of the Camp have recently been selected as one of the 100 New Imagination Chapters in the World by Imagination Foundation (a charity inspired by Caines Arcade). They will host the Global Cardboard Challenge in Lagos, an annual event that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. The event will hold next month.
