Kids Extracurricular: STEM Classes Monday Afternoons

Best Living Japan is offering kids’ extracurricular – Tokyo STEM Classes almost every Monday afternoon from 16:30-18:00 in Autumn 2020. Your kids can enjoy 1.5 hours of STEM in a socially distanced safe space. STEM is being taught by our partner Coding Lab.  Sign-up for one class for 5000 yen, three classes for 14,000 yen (4,667 yen per class, including tax) or all six for 26,000 yen (4,330 yen per class, including tax). The maximum class size is 10 kids in grades 2nd – 5th.

* Masks are mandatory and temperatures will be take at beginning of each class. Kids will temps over 37 celsius will not be emitted to class. 

In the STEM + ART = STEAM period Students create while learning about science, technology, engineering, and math.  Kids will explore things like how gravity works, how electricity and magnets can make motors turn, code robots to solve puzzles, discover cryptographer, use chemistry to make invisible inks, and more.  We teach kids about the scientific method and how to conduct experiments, but we emphasis creativity and having fun.

All about our partner:

Coding Lab Japan 

We believe that every child should have the chance to code. There are many things that children will love about coding; creating their own game, app, making their own animated stories and the many other endless possibilities by harnessing today’s rapidly evolving technologies.

At Coding Lab, it is our mission to extend these benefits to every child we meet. Teaching them the joy of breaking down computing puzzles one step at a time, or seeing their faces light up as they test out their newly created game is what we delight in doing.

The idea of coding may seem daunting at first, but with the right guidance and practice, any child can learn to code.

We hope to infuse our students with enthusiasm as they discover this complex but increasingly valuable language, leading them to discover the wonders of creating their own app, writing their own code, and sparking their creativity as they design their own creations.

Through coding, our students learn the process of logical thinking, build self-confidence, and begin to understand critical reasoning. We want every child to experience the benefits of coding not only at their computer, but also to apply what they have learnt at school and at the workplace.

Our tailor-made curriculum based on a mixture of world-renowned coding programs (Eg. Scratch by MIT, Stencyl etc), offers an extensive range of programs that provides our students with a vital head start in life.

Learn to code with us today! Find out more about our coding programmes here.
