WORKSHOPS FOR TERM 2

April to June 2018

Is it Magic? Using technology to create a wonder-filled world

How do we know what is real about the world and what is only imagined? How do we use our senses to perceive, interact with, and comprehend the world around us? How is new technology augmenting our ability to perceive the world in powerful and magical ways? Using simple circuitry, coding, and digital tools, children will be introduced to a series of quests to improve human sensory perception using technology, incorporating the use of Makey Makeys, a circuit board capable of turning almost anything conductive into an interactive object.

Biomimicry: Inventing with Nature

How can geckos climb straight up walls without falling off? How do hummingbirds hover so gracefully in mid-air? How do the shape of birds' beaks enable them to dive swiftly to fetch prey? During this Expedition, children are introduced to the natural wonders of the world and will learn how to create new technologies and innovations using these design patterns.

What are Lumineer Expeditions?

Lumineer Expeditions are hands on after school workshops open to all children from the community, led by our fully qualified and certified educators, in our dedicated makerspace.

Fun after school

Lumineer Expeditions are a series of hands-on after school workshops where you get to dream up fantastical ideas and make them in our dedicated makerspace built for kids.

Play with a difference

Lumineer Expeditions are based on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths), a curriculum designed to provide kids with the tools and knowledge to invent, design, and construct new innovations. We aren't just any ordinary STEM workshop - we teach STEM playfully and joyfully, and in a human and social context.

Powered by Luminaria

The Luminaria Educational Philosophy recognizes our children as truly whole human beings - we cultivate a balance of character strengths, a robust and inquisitive mind, and the fluency to work collaboratively to transform ideas into impact.

We also equip our children with the context they need to comprehend the world they live in, and help them build engaged empathy, ethical grounding, and critical thinking -- all imbued with authentic purpose and meaning.

Luminaria prepares our children to understand, contribute to, and become courageous architects of our rapidly changing world.
