Who are the Skyrock Club instructors?

Skyrock is comprised of high-energy and skilled instructors with backgrounds in science, engineering, design, computer science, art, and most importantly, teaching. Our instructors at Skyrock care about developing their students’ confidence and understanding of technology and engineering through creative freedom in a relaxed and controlled space.

Tech Clubs

What is a tech club, and how is it different from a regular class?

TECH CLUBS are after-school and weekend clubs where kids learn to create, connect and collaborate with each other through technology and invention.

No textbooks, just projects, since we learn through making.
No tests, just showcases, since we work towards competitions or events.
No grades, just badges (like Scouts) and belts (like Martial Arts), since we like kids to learn at their own pace and feel free to be original.

In these clubs the students feel like they belong to something, have fun and make friends, and they are intrinsically motivated to be creative. The Tech club spirit is the secret ingredient for unlocking creativity and confidence in kids.

Each club has its own charter and values, social events and field trips, coaches and ambassadors, and uniform and equipment.Our tech clubs will be replacing all classes and programs.

How do I get started?

1. Download our curriculum and schedule to pick the club that’s right for you.
2. Complete the registration form to reserve your space.
3. Review FAQs to understand how Tech Clubs work.
4. Make a payment and begin.
New students are encouraged to begin with a 4-hour induction to the club and then sign up if they like it.

What are the different options to choose from?

We currently have 5 clubs for elementary schools kids:
Young Inventors Club - Making
Code Wizards - Coding
Game Creators - Game
Machine Makers - Robotics
Fashion Engineers: Fashion tech
We also have the Nano STEAM Club for kids aged 4-6 years old, and the Mega Coding club for kids aged 11-14.

What is the learning style?

The MIT professor and founder of Scratch, Mitch Resnik, recently published a book showing how a creative learning experience is made up of Projects, Peers, Passion, and Play. We fundamentally agree with him.
We believe that the child that is doing the most making and inventing is the child that is doing the most learning.Our coaches are there to make sure they are challenged, that they are learning something new always, and that they are pushed to do the most creative work they’ve ever done before.

Are clubs taught in English, Chinese, or both?

Classes are predominantly taught in English. When stated otherwise or specifically requested, class will be taught by a bilingual coach or by an English-speaking coach with a Chinese-speaking teaching assistant.

Do the Tech Clubs cover the same material as camps?

Students who have completed summer camps material will not complete it again during Tech Clubs. Some new students will begin their Tech Clubs experience by doing projects other students completed during Summer Camp 2019.

Do students receive a certificate of completion afterwards?

Yes, upon completion of a certain amount of badges students graduate from one level to the next. This is when they will receive a certificate of completion.
