What’s one smart thing you can do during the March holidays? Bring the kids for fun learning at SmartKids Asia 2018!
Back for its sixth outing, the region’s biggest educational event will take place from 16 to 18 March at the Singapore Expo, Hall 6. As always, admission is free!
The Learning Pavilion *NEW*
Located at the back of the exhibition hall, in front of the Storyland area, The Learning Pavilion adopts a shared classroom format – much like Korea’s renowned ‘K-Children’ fair – to encourage co-learning.
Here, you’ll find exhibitors ranging from language centres to music schools, dance studios, tuition centres, and S.T.E.A.M enrichment programmes.
The pavilion is a fun-filled area buzzing with activities ranging from puzzle-solving to mini board games, math quizzes, English challenges, and craft activities such as making your own musical instrument.
Children between 2 and 12 years old get to play for free, and may even win small prizes when they complete an activity!
Sensory Art Trail *NEW*
MID-AUTUMN FEST: Atmospheric Parks to Enjoy Lantern Walks
NEW PRESCHOOL: Kids Get to Play Mini Golf and Go Bowling at this New Centre
BUILD YOUR LIBRARY: Recommended Books for Under 5s
Another new highlight at SmartKids Asia 2018 is the Sensory Art Trail, where visitors will encounter a carousel of textures, a lab of taste and smell, a land of instruments, and a logic game space in a conceptual tropical forest.
Curated by Lasalle College of the Arts and three Singaporean artists, the Sensory Art Trail goes beyond stimulating the five senses, to encourage children to use scientific processes as they discover, create, and play!
