Loki is leading an army of Frost Giants to invade Earth! 

Kids being the best and brightest S.H.I.E.L.D Agents have been chosen to help the Avengers in battle. They will join Avengers to help them complete their missions which include clear blocked passageways, defect enemy drones, distract and destroy Frost Giants. Kids be part of the mission to save the Earth! 

S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents will learn and gain exposure to both scientific method and the engineering design process, learn fundamental principles and concepts used in the natural sciences and civil, mechanical and chemical engineering. 

Looking at the camp synopsis, Little KW being a Avenger’s fan is so excited to know at the SuperHero Science holiday camp, he can be a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent and embark on an important mission!

I am a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent on a mission together with the Avengers to save the Earth!

To prepare ourselves for this important mission, we learn about gravity, projectile trajectory, potential and kinetic energy!

Kids DiscoveryWorks 3

SuperHero Science – Arrows Away! (Potential and Kinetic Energy)

As Agents, we must know how to make our own weapons and undergo weapons training where we will conduct experiments with our newly made bows and arrows to determine the optimal angle of launch to achieve the furthest range of 45 degrees!

Kids DiscoveryWorks Holiday Camp 2

SuperHero Science – Reaction Distractions (Chemical Reactions)

In the afternoon, we wasted no time to further engage in hands-on experiment to learn all about chemical reactions! We learned about atoms, molecules, and chemical and physical changes. The ability to recognise common signs of chemical reactions when embarking on our own series of experiments and make our own bottle rockets! Looking at how our bottle rocket shots up, we have succeeded! 

To save the Earth, we must be fully prepared! 

Day 2 of SuperHero Science

Kids DiscoveryWorks 6

SuperHero Science – Bridging the Gap (Bridge Engineering) 

We have reached Day 2 of our training and my fellow agents and I are looking forward to apply what we have learnt into engineering tasks!

Bridges are an important mean of transportation. There are four main types of bridges: Beam, Truss, Arch and Suspension Bridges, we learnt all about them and the forces that act on them. 

Kids DiscoveryWorks SuperHero Science Holiday Camp

Today, we spend a fruitful time learning from our S.H.I.E.L.D. instructor. It’s an eye-opener and mind-blowing to learn and discover amazing work from famous architect like Shigeru Ban. As Agents, we are challenged to exercise our knowledge and engineered into making our own weight-bearing bridges made out of straws! The bridge that can support the most weight will win! 

Kids DiscoveryWorks 8

SuperHero Science – Balloon Power (Newton’s Third Law)

We get to conduct experiments with pinwheel and balloon rockets, design and make our very own balloon-powered cars. In the process, we learnt more about Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion. 

Kids DiscoveryWorks 7Agents gather to discuss and work together to complete their tasks.

Day 3 of SuperHero Science

This day marked the last day to complete our mission! We have much to learn and to finish our work to save the Earth! We learnt all about friction and get to conduct a series of experiments to find out and explore how friction acts to slow things down, we Agents get hands-on to build our own balloon hovercrafts! 

Kids DiscoveryWorks 2017

SuperHero Science – Discovering Hovering (Friction)

Fidget spinners is very popular right now!

At the camp, we get to make DIY fidget spinners which rely on reduced friction. It can be pretty stressful fighting Loki and his army of Frost Giants, we need to destress and by making our own DIY fidget spinner, we can use that for some stress relief! 

Kids DiscoveryWorks 11

I am working on an experiment with my fellow Agents! 

SuperHero Science – (Non-Newtonian Fluids) 

We learnt about ‘normal’ liquids, like water are called Newtonian fluids after Isaac Newton, it has a constant viscosity and is affected by temperature. Non-Newtonian fluids is affected by force or sheer stresses like stirring.

Today Got Class Interview with Lydia Ang and Jaclyn Yap

Question 1: Why did you start TGC?

TGC: We launched Today Got Class last year because, as parents ourselves, we believe that parenthood can be simplified. Time saved is time spent with our children, our family and friends. “For Parents, By Parents” is our tagline.

Question 2: What are some of the challenges parents face?

TGC: As multi-tasking mothers who were once corporate warriors – we understand the scarcity of time spent with our families. Currently, many enrichment centres still require parents to be physically present to make payments over the counter before class confirmation, which can be highly time-consuming for working parents. We’re constantly innovating our technology to provide convenience to busy parents.

Question 3: How does TGC benefit parents?

TGC: Today Got Class enables parents to browse and book the best deals in quality enrichment classes. We stress on quality because we have children and we understand that parents would want what is best for them too. There are 10 enrichment categories offered on Today Got Class. Parents have access to search over 1,000 classes island-wide, across 120 locations at Today Got Class. The categories include arts, brain training, Chinese language literacy, English language literacy, engineering and math (STEM), holiday programmes, life skills, music and dance, play groups, science, sports and technology. We even personally screen and curate the centres listed on our platform and strive to offer the most competitive price.

We have implemented TGC Reviews, where we share independent reviews by parents, for parents.

It can be found here: http://www.todaygotclass.com/whatsnew/category/tgcreviews/

Question 4: How does TGC support parenting and mummy groups?

TGC: As mums ourselves, we believe in supporting other parents. We are doing an extended outreach to fellow parenting and mummy groups. We have been working with one of the parenting groups to organise an upcoming community event. Apart from securing sponsorships from our centres to contribute for lucky draw prizes, we have also invited key speakers to share their experiences and organising a few trial classes on-site.

If you would like to find out how we can support groups with exclusive offers and more, simply e-mail us at hello@todaygotclass.com.

Question 5: Does TGC have any partnerships that could benefit parents and children?

TGC: Some of our partners include Disney on Ice and Hi-5 live in Singapore. TGC parents will enjoy discounts when they purchase show tickets for Disney on Ice and Hi-5 live in Singapore.

Question 6: What are some of the activities parents can enrol their children in during the upcoming school holidays?

TGC: We are currently pending confirmation to lock down the main programs for the upcoming June holidays. Once we have further details, we will feature a holiday programme guide as follows: http://www.todaygotclass.com/whatsnew/holidaydeals/

Question 7: How can parents sign up for TGC?

TGC: It’s very simple to find classes, book, and be rewarded. To start, sign up for an account, search across 1,000 classes and 120 locations, check for availability and the best prices.

For every 100 Reward Points earned, you can redeem S$1 off your next class booking. To redeem your reward points, simply key in the number of points (in units of hundreds) that you wish to utilise while making payment for your class booking. The discount (based on number of points indicated) will be deducted from the final payment amount.

Question 9: What is the feedback from your users?

TGC: The Parents

Our users are the busy parents who appreciate using our portal. Some of them find the reviews and recommendations posted by other parents extremely useful. We work with a large community of parents. They are constantly sharing constructive feedback with us such as what would be relevant to them and what kind of classes would benefit their children. As parents ourselves, we also take into account our parenting experience that we use to provide personal recommendations when trying understand each individual parent’s needs. We take our users’ feedback seriously and work very hard to address them.

Some of the testimonials received from the parents were:

  • “Effortless and convenient”
  • “As a first time parent – Today Got Class played an important role in our child’s early childhood education and development
  • “Thanks to Today Got Class’ recommendation, I saw an improvement in my child’s development” 

The Centres

There were a couple of concerns that the centres faced where they might have to realign their administrative work before partnering with us. However, we spent time to walk through the back-end system meticulously and they found the technology behind the process simplified and user-friendly. Furthermore, our partners strongly believe that Today Got Class adds value to their businesses and broadens their reach to a new segment of parents.

Thank you Lydia Ang and Jaclyn Yap for taking our interview!
