Introduction

Girls Maker Club (GMC) is an all-girls-only hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) & robotic programme for female students. GMC serves to increase girls’ confidence, awareness, interest and grit to pursue technology fields through comprehensive lessons on computational thinking, problem solving, coding, presentation and design thinking skills using open source softwares and compatible hardwares such as Micro:bit.

Class Delivery Method

GMC students will meet weekly in Arus Academy to learn coding and project making.
In addition to STEM knowledge and project making skills, GMC places a high emphasis on the character development of female students to be bold and equally confident in the STEM fields. GMC students will meet weekly in Arus Academy to learn coding and project making in a safe and conducive environment that allows their voices to be heard. Besides the weekly meeting with teachers, students can also reach out to teachers through Whatsapp group for additional advice and technical assistance.

Snapshots of students learning journey

After 5-months of comprehensive learning, GMC students will get to showcase their coding knowledge and project making skills to build physical project prototypes that help to solve real world problems. They will also get the opportunity to present and exhibit their maker projects along with their peers at the end of the programme. This holistic STEM and robotics programme not only exposes students to the 21st-century skills like coding, problem solving and project making, it also encourages our girls to be aware of the importance of knowledge and their full potential in life.
