Looking for something to do on a rainy day? We asked Nexus International School (Singapore) for some new ideas, and we must say, this is a fun one...

It’s finally the holidays! Although this should be the perfect time for the kids to catch up on some outdoor play, the weather gods seem to think otherwise. Being stuck at home with nothing to do isn’t fun for anyone, especially for kids who can’t wait to kick off their vacay with a bang. If your bag of tricks for things to do on a rainy day is running low, we’ve got just the thing for you – your very own hologram!

Today, the uber techy Ed Baily, the Digital Learning Coach of Nexus International School (Singapore) shows HoneyKids how kids can make their own hologram with six easy-to-find items. It’s so simple that almost anyone (with mum or dad’s supervision, of course) can do it! All you need is: a few minutes, a plastic bottle or CD case, a pair of scissors/box cutter (mum or dad’s help with this, please!), a ruler, pen, craft paper, and a smart-phone. Watch how to do it right here!

This type of activity (and others like it) is just an example of the fun, creative direction Nexus International School (Singapore) takes when it comes to education. Known for its innovative digital approach, the school believes that technology should enhance and extend learning. At Nexus, each student has access to a laptop (from the 6th grade and onwards) or an iPad. These tools allow learners to cooperate and collaborate with ease, as well as make classes more dynamic and exciting.

Nexus is one of the few Apple distinguished schools in the country. This distinction is only held for schools that meet Apple’s criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and that demonstrate Apple’s vision of exemplary learning environments.In today’s modern world, we all know this is definitely a plus. In a time where learners are considered to be world citizens because of their ability to access information, Nexus is quick to adapt, thoughtfully prioritizing the needs of the learners.

This thoughtfulness is also reflected in the personalized approach Nexus takes when it comes to learning. Nexus understands that each child learns at a different pace. Learning experiences are designed with the individual in mind, and challenges set appropriately. Unlike your typical school that focuses on academic rigor, Nexus believes in creating a fun, inviting environment for learning. This way, students are able to recognize their potential and respect their own unique worth as well as that of others.

There’s no doubt that we can always expect something out of the box when it comes to Nexus International School (Singapore)!
