Think of learning pathways as appetizers. Get started on your learning journey with curated programmes and content before delving deeper into topics that interest you.
Growing with Science Anytime, Anywhere!
A child’s discovery of the world happens in their everyday life – in their interactions with the people around them, their local environment, the community, and the world beyond.
Through our suite of programmes and resources, children will be given opportunities to explore the world around them through experiential learning. They will learn to apply inquiry or process skills such as observation, prediction, investigation and drawing conclusions through these experiences.
And while these activities will help children better understand scientific concepts, our resources also seek to equip parents to be part of their child’s journey with Science. Science is everywhere and learning can happen anytime, even at home! Find out tips on how you can be part of your child’s exploration in the complex and diverse nature of the world.

|All About Animals: Animal Life Cycles||Every living thing goes through a life cycle and your child may start understanding that as they grow! Go on an investigative journey with them to learn about the growth, and development of both familiar and even unfamiliar animals!|
|ABC’s of Applied Physics for Kids: Let There Be Light!||Light is made up of waves. These waves travel from light sources, bounce off objects and come to our eyes, allowing us to see things. Light sources come in many forms. Lamp posts help light up streets. Stadium lights help us watch a late sports match. Computer monitors and television screens emit light to display images. Light can also come from flames, not just electricity, like from the bonfire during camping. And of course, the biggest main source of light for us: the Sun!|
| ABC’s of Applied Chemistry:
| Acids and bases are present in the food that we eat and drink daily. Examples of acidic drinks are orange juice or vinegar, and they taste sour. Bases, like egg whites and baking soda, taste bitter.
Scientists use a pH scale, ranging from 0 to 14, to measure how acidic and basic a substance is. Do you know that we can make our own pH indicator in the comfort of our homes? Check it out!
