Sparklelab | Making Learning Extraordinary

Getting a good education for my daughter has always been my priority. I believe that as a parent, I should give Meg the right training for her to be ready in the future - whether she will become a lawyer, a veterinarian, or a flight attendant. 

More than the profession, I think it is also important to build a strong foundation of learning that will be their building blocks as they grow. Good thing that there are a lot of options now that can help kids develop their potentials. 

Last May 4, we were able to experience what Sparklelab has to offer. Actually, when we were invited to the trial class, I thought it's just based on Engineering stuff and Math. But what they actually do is design play based learning experiences mainly in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). Their main objective is to prepare kids for success in the future by teaching them critical 21st century skills such as Imagining, Research/Finding Inspiration, Exploring, tinkering and experimenting, Designing, procedural thinking, Collaborating and Connecting/Sharing, and a lot more.

Watch the video to meet the people behind Sparklelab and the stop-motion animation film that the kids made! 
The kids were able to experience making their own stop-motion animation film. The first group used clay and Nursery rhymes so they've come up with Dumpty Dumpty (sorry I wrote Humpty Dumpty sa video), and the other group used toy soldier figures and bricks for their Zombie Apocalypse. It was actually fun!
Sparklelab also has workshops in game design and development, toy making, robotics, electronics, film making, and animation. 

I asked Rosanna (the founder) if the kids get intimidated especially if they're not good at Arts or Math or if they're not used to work in groups and she said no and added that the kids in fact love to go at Sparklelab. Well, Meg was shy at first but when they were grouped, the facilitator motivated her to do her part and she designed the background for their stop-motion animation film. So I think that really is something. What I also love about Sparklelab is that they work in groups so it can improve on the social interaction and team work among kids. 
They sure had fun!

They still have on-going workshops this summer so if you guys are interested for a free trial just contact them. The workshop consists of 6 sessions of 3 hours each for ₱8,500.00. The group size is between 5-12 kids. 

For kids 7-18 years old, they offer Game Makers 1, Game Makers 2, Toy Mill: Mad Scientist's lab, and Get Reel: The Art of Stop Motion. They also have the Bytesize program for kids 3.5 - 6 years old. It is a two-hour play group filled with stories, wacky design jams and lots of play.

Investing on something like this is valuable because this is something I personally believe in -- nurturing the education of our kids. While they fall in love with learning, they will be able to solve problems on their own and innovate something. So I guess that's making learning Extraordinary with Sparkle LAB.
