Course Overview: 

This woodworking camp seamlessly integrates STEAM concepts into the art of woodworking. The super fun camp is designed by an experienced science teacher and creative professionals. The sessions empower young minds to explore, experiment and create using wood as their canvas.

Course Content: 

Day 1: Make a bread tray

The introductory session provides children a chance to work with hand tools and wood to build something functional. They will need to learn about joinery and reinforcements of corners to create a stong and stable structure. Measurements and geometry will also be employed in the making of a bread tray.

Day 2: Baking Focacia bread 

Children will gain experience using digital scales and timers to ensure accuracy and consistency during the baking process.

Baking bread offers artistic opportunities when it comes to decorating the loaves. Children can experiment with different ingredients to enhance the bread's aesthetic appeal. They will also learn about gluten and how the kneading and resting process affects the structure and texture of bread.

Day 3: Learn About Windmills and Build Your Own

The lesson starts with an interactive briefing on how Windmills work. After discussing the components of a windmill, children start their own woodworking project to create a pulley system that requires wind to work.

Day 4: At the end of this lesson, children will understand the basic concepts of electric circuits, identify key components and incorporate a simple circuit in a toy design of their own. The project also involves designing and painting.
