Any Science tuition centres that offers hands-on activities?

Postby christopherchen » Wed May 02, 2012 11:06 am

I am looking for a centre which is more well-rounded and include hands on activities or even experiments. Any centres or private tutors to recommend?

At Mastery, we believed that students learn better with hands-on activities.

I do experiments in my Secondary level classes. It is a great way to learn science. I remember enjoying that style of learning when I was in Secondary school in the US. Descriptions of our classes are here: http://physicsandcalculus.com/singapore-physics-tuition

My son attended the science workshop at Up activity center. Cheap and good! It's not really tuition, but for encouraging curiosity, it's alright. check out the facebook. http://www.facebook.com/upkidssingapore.

Does anyone have any more recent recommendations? I am also looking for something more hands-on and more focussed on exploring science outside of the school curriculum. Not trying to teach ahead of the school but satisfying my son's curiosity. I find the primary school curriculum very limited and rigid so I don't want him to lose his interest and passion for science.
