Creative and Critical Thinking Skills

BrainBuilder™ offers a holistic approach to maths education – learning new concepts and using the world-renowned Singapore maths model-drawing techniques to solve real life problems. Founded by world-renowned academic, Dr. Fong, BrainBuilder™ partners each child's maths journey to ensure that they gain the skills they need to master maths. 

The Creative and Critical Thinking Skills program encourages our 7 to 10 year old campers to think critically, and empowers them with the confidence to master maths. Children are given an intriguing problem-statement at the start of each day and will be invited to solve this thought provoking maths problem. They will develop their problem-solving skills every day through lessons, mini-games and exploration - and use these new skills to find a solution to the day's problem.

"BrainBuilder ™ is taught in a systematic manner which allowed my daughter to easily apply the concepts she learnt to solve more challenging problems. Sign up - you will not regret it!"
