About this Event

Research has proven that hands-on experiences boost learning in Science. To quote Professor Sian Beilock, “…our actions matter for how and what we learn.” This is especially relevant in the recent avalanche of online learning.

Thinkers Bonkers offers exciting, engaging and meaningful lessons for your kids. Suited for children ages 5 to 7, our guided Science inquiry lessons hinge on the children's natural curiosity and existing mental models of Science concepts. The program aims to sharpen kids’ thinking and process skills through concept teaching, experiments, model making, role play and puzzles.

We create an environment and structured playground for children to:

• internalise the true nature of Science

• practise Science process skills and attitudes

• guide the children to be thinkers and not followers

• develop 21st century competencies such as innovation, communication, collaboration and others

• reorganise and restructure their mental schemata about science concepts to construct their own understanding of Science concepts

Thinkers Bonkers is the brainchild of Singapore trained teacher, Malar Oly, who seeks to provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) enrichment programmes to primary school children. She has first forayed into the Science arena. Not interested in Bang – Boom Science demonstrations which hardly offer children anything more than a high adrenalin rush, she has carefully crafted a series of guided, but fun-filled lessons that hinge on Inquiry to give not just a flavor of Science but a firm foundation in Scientific Literacy as well.

Malar taught English, Mathematics and Science to primary students in Singapore before migrating to Australia. Having worked with high ability pupils in Singapore, she has developed her ability to implement differentiated instruction for optimal learning of her students. Science teaching has been her interest and specialty. In her years of teaching Science, she carried out Inquiry focused lessons and remodeled lessons to infuse thinking skills and specific process skills to suit subjects. This provided the depth and breadth of learning beyond syllabus for her students. Her practicum for the certificate in teaching high ability students was anchored on Science lessons.
