Events and activities for kids
The squeamish needn’t worry – the rodents in this play are all actors. A helpless mouse has to talk its way out of the jaws of a ferocious lion or risk being turned into dinner. Presented by I Theatre, this production mixes live action with songs and puppetry to tell Aesop’s Fables in whole new ways. For kids aged three to 13.
Budding IT pros learn video-game design, robotics, animation and digital art at this five-day technology and creativity camp run by the Children’s Technology Workshop. Don’t worry, its not all geeky fun. The kids will also get to run around away from the computer. How’s that for mind-body balance?
Art Boot Camp
Let your kids immerse themselves in creative fun as Art Boot Camp offers exciting art classes and unique vacation workshops of various themes.
Children’s Technology Workshop
The Children’s Technology Workshop offers hands-on courses for children that are buckets of fun. Self-proclaimed tech geek and proud parent Darryl Reiter set up the school in Canada in 1997, after years of teaching. Staying true to its motto – ‘explore. invent. create.’– the centre lets bright young sparks dabble in technical work, from robotics to video-game design to programming. Eager teachers – most have a science or engineering background – are on hand to guide rather than instruct. There’s no memorising here, just pure understanding by exploring.
