The IKS Curriculum
The main aim of the IKS curriculum is to promote the love and joy of learning science. Complex science concepts are introduced, broken-down and paired with fun hands-on experiments. Play is used to successfully engage our kids in the process of learning. Ultimately, this makes exciting scientific phenomena more approachable, understandable, and enthralling!
It is a fact that children love to PLAY. The IKS curriculum is revolutionary in that its design derives from understanding that concept. The IKS strategy is to guide their play with highly enjoyable tasks and goals. We use the field of science as a vessel to, not only expose our children to science, but also to promote the development of strong social skills, collaboration, persistence, respect, and communication. The IKS curriculum is highly entertaining and engaging! The kids are motivated to constantly refine and improve their efforts, resulting in a self-motivated increase in their ability to learn and grow.
