  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Let us know if you have any questions that are not available below. Email us at info@onemakergroup.com

    What does the fees includes?

    The camp fees includes 2 snacks and a lunch, a toolbox equipped with appropriate tools, a camp T-shirt and a Maker journal.

     

    At the end of the camp, participants will be awarded certificate of achievement, skill patches and a commemorative camp patch.

    Where will the activities be held?

    All activities will be carried out within the confines of the National Design Centre, specifically the PrototypingLab at level 1.

    Do you cater to special dietary needs?

    Yes, do let us know during registration if there are any specific dietary needs or allergy. Essentially, all food will be provided by halal certified caterers.

    What is the unique feature of this camp?

    Unlike other holiday camps, the Make-vember Camp focuses on hands-on making especially within the technology, science and engineering domain. We allow our participants to develop confidence in the face of ambiguity by facilitating multiple problem-solving scenarios.

    What is the class size?

    All camp participants will be assigned groupings which consist of no more than 10 members.

    What is the minimum age of the child in order to be eligible?

    In view of the complexity of the work output expected from the child, the preferred age for the participant should be between 6 to 12 years old.

    How is the camp facilitated?

    The camp begins every day at 9am sharp and ends at 5pm. All camp participants will be briefed of the day's expectations before breaking out into work groups where children will be placed in groups of 8-10 persons working with a maker facilitator. The programme is extremely high-touch and are facilitated by trained and experience adults with the teacher to student ratio of 1:6.

    Who are the facilitators?

    Each making activity is led by an experienced maker and assisted by trained leaders who may be made up of university or polytechnic tertiary students.

    Can parents stay with the child throughout the camp?

    No. While we would love very much to have the parents' involvement in the camp, we are also mindful that the child needs their own space and time to develop their own ideas. Having parents looking over their shoulders can be unbearably stressful. Nevertheless, do discuss with us especially in circumstances where there is a critical need to do so e.g. child with special needs.
