The British Council, in partnership with Kids DiscoveryWorks, is proud to present new, innovative programmes that bring Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to pre-school and primary school children. Through engaging games, role-playing and hands-on experimentation, these exciting programmes ignite interest in learning through play.


Introduce your child to the wonderful and amazing world of science! In this program, junior Scientists and Explorers will engage in fun, hands-on learning activities that are sure to bring smiles to their faces. As they explore each lesson topic, Explorers will have the opportunity to develop their skills of observation, communication, critical thinking and collaboration. A great way to make your child's first memories of science fun and meaningful!

Your child will have a ton of fun learning about:

  • Light and sound
  • Primary, secondary and tertiary colors
  • Magnets
  • States of matter, and more!

Did you know that the Three Little Pigs were civil engineers? And the poor, much-maligned Big, Bad Wolf was only a structural engineer trying to do his job!

This unit harnesses the power of beloved children’s stories such as The Three Little Pigs, The Tortoise & the Hare, Jack & the Beanstalk, The Gingerbread Man, and The Billy Goats Gru to expose our young Engineers and Scientists to basic scientific and engineering principles and concepts used in aeronautical, civil, and marine engineering and even forensic science!

Your child will have loads of fun:

  • Building stable shelters for the Three Little Pigs
  • Designing boats for the Billy Goats Gru
  • Helping the Pied Piper make new musical instruments
  • Building bridges for the Gingerbread Man, and more!

Earth is under attack! As our best and brightest field agent, your child has been selected to assist Earth's superheroes on their mission to protect Earth! Agents will gain exposure to both the scientific method and the engineering design process, and learn fundamental principles and concepts used in the natural sciences and civil, mechanical and chemical engineering.

Your child will have a great time:

  • Destroying enemy ice barriers… with physics!
  • Designing a balloon-powered car
  • Exploring chemical reactions
  • Rebuilding Heroes Tower, and more!

What is STEM

STEM is a new approach to education that emphasizes teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in an interdisciplinary curriculum. Instead of teaching these disciplines as separate subjects, STEM integrates them into lessons that uniquely require students to actively engage a problem and apply their learning to find a creative solution. 

The pre-school and primary years are critical times in a child's development. These are the years when your child will build key skill sets and tools required to understand and thrive in the world. With the pressure to raise test scores, however, many schools today have a very limited amount of time to devote to hands-on discovery and exploration, or to allow children to experience the pleasure of designing experiments to creatively solve real-world, relevant problems. The British Council and Kids DiscoveryWorks aim to fill this gap.

Fun: Ignites interest in learning through play

Hands-on: Encourages exploration and discovery through experimentation

Creative: Provides opportunities for inventive problem-solving

Educational: Advances better understanding of math, engineering and science through early childhood exposure

Collaborative: Builds confidence, collaboration and communication skills


Please note that a minimum enrolment of 8 students is required for each programme to run. The British Council and Kids DiscoveryWorks tries to inform parents as soon as possible should it appear that a programme will not reach its minimum enrolment. On these occasions, we will fully refund any fees paid and offer priority enrolment in other programs at our centres.
