Maker Academy - Kidspire Vietnam
What is Maker Academy for Vietnamese orphan children?
Tra-My Nguyen, Initiator with Maker Academy
We (Kidspire Vietnam - also as known as Orphan Impact) believe that each child already has special seeds inside that will flourish in different ways depending on the educational environments they are immersed in.
We would love to bridge the educational gap for disadvataged children, inspiring them in learning and helping them to prepare for their future after leaving the orphanage. We provide a free training program to develop core competencies, so that they can become global citizens who can solve local problems: empathy, creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and grit.
During the last 2 years, more than 300+ children from 7 different orphanages throughout Vietnam directly benefited from the Maker Academy program of Kidspire Vietnam with more than 200+ Maker/STEAM activities.
The classroom can be indoors or outdoors and set up with 3-5 different stations so that children can choose which station they would love to join on the day. The stations could be related to: circuitry, experiments, engineering, coding, robotics, maker activities, global movements/contests (ex. Google Code-in: a largest online global contest encouraging young people into open source; or Technovation: a global movement to empower girls into technology - solve real-world problems through technology...). We create the best environment, so students are given the opportunity to become aware about the world outside orphanges.
We would love to reach more than 1000+ children throughout Vietnam in the next 2 years.
