School and Industrial Partners:

Cradle_Partners

CRADLΣ collaborates with schools to support curriculum innovation under our school-based workshop scheme. Partnered schools infuse STEM-based workshops into their curriculum creating more opportunities to allow experiential learning in the classroom. An example is the use of CRADLΣ home-built diffraction kits for a cohort to measure distances between objects. With the push for applied learning, we also support schools to provide professional development on microcontroller as well as student workshops under our school-based workshop scheme.

Together with CRADLΣ, Industrial partners create authentic programs and experiences for students. With industrial partners onboard, we are able to draw out their expertise, allowing students to view knowledge through different lenses. It makes links explicit, applying concepts into real-world applications and at the same time developing interest into possible career path.
