Making Learning Fun for Kids from 2 to 12 years old
this March school holidays at SmartKids Asia
With three days of fun hands-on and interactive activities, SmartKids Asia – the region’s biggest educational event – is back from 16 to 18 March 2018 at Singapore Expo Hall 6.
The Learning Pavillion
A first for SmartKids Asia is the addition of The Learning Pavilion, a dedicated area featuring language and enrichment programmes that are designed to equip young learners with the skills they need for the future.
Kids can challenge themselves through activities like puzzle-solving, mini board games, word games, comprehension speed games, math quizzes, mini English challenges; get hands-on with craft works such as make-your-own-musical-instrument; or take part in fun games like musical word of the day and pop quizzes on cards.
All activities within this pavilion are free-to-play for children between 2 and 12 years old.

Sensory Art Trail
Also making its debut is the Sensory Art Trail which has pockets of experimental spaces, each offering a different sensory experience. Participants will encounter a carousel of textures, a lab of taste and smell, a land of instruments and a logic game space while navigating this conceptual tropical forest trail.
Through this trail, SmartKids Asia will enable children to explore senses other than touch and encourage them to use scientific processes while they play, create and investigate. Online registration will open in the first week of March.
Other Highlights Include:
– SmartKids Asia Storyland: This popular segment will showcase timeless classics such as The Frog Prince, Pinocchio and The Sleeping Beauty in the form of theatrical plays and storytelling.
– Free Trial Classes: Educational and enrichment providers will be offering trial classes from 10:30am to 8pm on Friday and Saturday, and from 10:30am to 7pm on Sunday. The programmes are tailored for ages 3-12 years old, and cover subjects like English, Maths, Science, technology, arts and more. Online registration will open in the first week of March.
