The Keys Academy, for instance, said it offers courses that are multi-disciplinary in approach. At one of its offerings, a holiday workshop titled CSI: Murder Mystery, children aged 10 to 12 enter a mock crime scene and hunt for clues to help them solve a murder. One of the trainers, Mr Justin Olby, 46, said: “It’s an inter-disciplinary approach. You learn maths, physics, chemistry and communications. You learn to think critically and solve problems. There are no right answers, but there is a better one. The children are taught to make decisions for themselves and develop persuasive arguments.”
It may seem like you've only just packed away the tinsel, but March'll be here before you know it and Spring break along with that. And while Singapore isn't short of sanity-saving holiday camps, if you're looking for something that'll really stretch your 6-to-15-year-old, then don't miss Keys Academy's multi-disciplinary holiday programme. Most of the week-long camps involve awesome field visits, while all come with expert guest speakers, hands-on learning, and the opportunity to sharpen problem-solving, technology, and communication skills!

"We live in a world where tech skills are a requirement to succeed, no matter your field. A number of programmers that we spoke to for our Girls in Tech post cited early exporsure in programming as very important in their development as IT professionals, while many who learned programming as adults wished they had started earlier."
