Event description

Description

This unique Maker Camp + Entrepreneur Camp + Bazaar program is the first of its kind, and the #LILBOSS track is especially designed for children in upper primary schools (10 to 12 years old).

Making actual products and setting up their first business is an immersive ‘real world’ learning experience for your children that will have long term impact on how they view, and eventually build, their world.

WHY SIGN UP?

Your child will benefit from :

  • A Shift from a Consumer to a Producer Mentality, and a better appreciation for how products are made and how money is earned.

  • Learn Design Thinking and Business Basics from professionals.

  • Hands-on prototype and digital creations, and learn small scale manufacturing techniques and digital product building.

  • Experience selling to the public for real money

  • Selling for a cause. A portion of proceeds will be donated to a charity of their choice.


CAMP SCHEDULE

  • Week 1: BUSINESS WORKSHOP & PROTOTYPE BUILDING (Nov 27 to Dec 1, 9 am to 6 pm daily) Our community experts will conduct multiple workshops on: business model canvas, design thinking and product design, materials purchasing, inventory management, accounting, distribution, and multi channel. marketing. Teams will also choose and ‘shop’ for materials, as well as finalise product prototypes.

  • Week 2: PRODUCTION & PRE-MARKETING (Dec 4 to 7 , 9 am to 6 pm daily). The week’s focus is on mass production, based on the final prototypes. The teams will also launch their promotional campaigns on social media, and will build and design their own booths for the bazaar.

  • Weekend Bazaar (Friday and Saturday, Dec 8 and 9, 9 am to 6 pm). Participants will sell and showcase their products at 2-day bazaar (10 am to 6 pm). At the end of the second day, we will award camp participants with special prizes and certificates of participation, and each team will award their donations to their charity of choice.


FAQ

Q. Is this only for 10 to 12 year olds?

A. The camp is suitable for age groups that are able to take direction well and have some level of social maturity and manual dexterity.

There will also be a separate track for TEENS aged 13 to 16 years old. For more details on this, please see: https://goo.gl/LAkXPJ

Q. Can my children sign up as a team, with their friends? How many per group?

A. Yes, we encourage friends and siblings (or other relatives) to sign up as a team, though this is NOT a requirement.

Each team needs 5 members each. Participants who sign up as individuals can choose teams and team members amongst themselves, during a 'networking session' at the start of camp.


Q. Are the children going to sleep over at the camp?

A. This is a daily drop off event. The venue is centrally located (across from Bugis MRT), and the Design Centre and camp will be open from 8:30 AM to accept children whose parents will need to drop them off on the way to work.


Q. Why is it a DROP OFF event?

A. As with many of our events, we encourage Independent Time for all participants. All the sessions will be supervised by a dedicated team coach, in addition to guidance from the domain experts.

However, we highly encourage parents to be present during the awarding ceremony for participants on the second day of the bazaar, on Saturday, December 9th, 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Show your support by also inviting other members of your family and friends to drop by the full day public bazaar!


Q. Can I help my child with any of the activities? Can we sell other products at the booth?

A. Because we encourage independence, an important trait for thriving in the future, we request that parents refrain from directly assisting in the performance of key tasks and assignments. Instead, the children will be guided by trained domain experts and more importantly, they will learn how to collaborate with other team members.
