Archimake session 2

Archimake compliments the school curriculum by putting into practice many theoretical, abstract concepts. 
Numerical understanding, such as quantity, weight, size, scale & proportion are explored through use of materials. The decision making re­quired during the creative process strength­ens child's ability to self evaluate & correct through trial and error.

Children learn about cause and effect, through testing models and in addition be­come familiar with the physical properties of materials and their appropriate use. 
This lends itself to inherent structural under­standing, physics and engineering, whilst simultaneously developing appreciation of aesthetics, harmony and composition.
We seek to minimise gender division of arts and sciences by enabling children to explore what stimulates them in an integrated way.
Through constructive play children explore space, structures, making, teamwork, problem solving, recycling, leadership and communication. 
Kids learn about relation between the space we live in and the impact, even the smallest idea or project can have on our environment. They can boost their learning, complimenting the curriculum and develop creative and scientific skills to last them a lifetime, whatever field they choose to excel in the future.
