It’s cool to be smart, and no one knows this better than Smarter Me, the organisers of Young Founders Summit - the global startup competition for kids and teens.
Smarter Me believes in instilling the 4C1R in kids (Critical thinking, Collaboration, Creativity, Communication and Resilience). Their camps prepare kids for the future and the REAL world. This means your child could be learning about financial literacy, entrepreneurship or innovation, with plenty of room for creativity and realism. Don’t worry, they are also age-appropriate. Older kids think of a real-world problem they want to solve, prototype their solution using robotics and coding skills and pitch their business plan, while younger kids learn the ins and outs of setting up a brick-and-mortar business, while also learning coding and robotics.
Parents can choose from one of their 3 signature camps, that attract not only an audience from Singapore but also overseas (yes, they are that good!). Smarter Me run them November all the way to January, so students across different schools can participate and take advantage of these hugely popular camps.
