MSB channels the powerful impact of projects and incorporates them in our curriculum to make learning enjoyable and challenging for our students. We use Lego Learning, Robotics and Inside Innovators (an MSB program) to engage and prepare our children.
As we enhance student-led learning, MSB is using LEGO project-based learning to develop the 21st- century skills that are essential for the careers of tomorrow. Students will experience science, technology, engineering and mathematics first-hand through innovative, engaging tools that place them at the centre of the learning environment. We are also introducing and extending our support in training our students for the FIRST LEGO League competition, which is a STEM-oriented, project-based learning experience that involves robotics and a real-word theme. This year the theme is CITY SHAPERS.
Robotics has been incorporated as an after-school activity; children get to discover a new passion whilst learning about coding, technological communication, programming skills and creative thinking, with an added boost to their self-confidence and teamwork skills. An interesting range of topics supports the students’ learning.

Inside Innovators is MSB’s in-house cross-curricular development program. Students learn through a series of inter-connected topics, often culminating in incredible projects. With Inside Innovators, our students learn about a variety of subjects through a singular focal point, are free to explore ideas and thoughts and incorporate research and critical thinking in their day-to-day learning process.
