The journey from a good idea to a product is a long one....in fact, some might say the good idea is the easiest part! In this module learners work to design and sell a BBQ, exploring the science behind their product along the way. Pulling in key ideas of heat transfer, the class will explore the most suitable materials, shape and measurements for the perfect BBQ. They will also become more familiar with using G-suites to create an advert which utilises fact and opinion, as well programme a simple budget using spreadsheet formulas. This is the perfect module for any budding business people or learners interested in function and design.
In this 30 hour module, learners imagine themselves as a travel blogger planning a once in a lifetime trip to a rainforest. Fascinated by what they might find when they get there, this module is a mix of researching the unknown, purposefully asking why, and communicating effectively along the way. Concepts explored include explaining the science behind the rainforest climate, gaining a deeper understanding of communicating proportion using fractions and charts, and how to research without plagiarizing. The module culminates with an exciting journey into coding the perfect website to reach their followers! This is the perfect module to scientists, fledgling journalists and everyone in between.
Planning the perfect trip takes a lot of organisation and research, but how much thought does the average person put into picking the right bag for the journey? In this module, learners consider the effects of forces and the properties of materials in order to choose the ideal bag for the trip of their dreams. Integrating the skills needed to plan a fair investigation, collect and present valid data and create a podcast, this is much more scientific than choosing their favourite colour. At the end of this module students will have gained confidence in thinking analytically and communicating complicated ideas.

It's easy to view forces as an impossibly complex physics concept, but they become much simpler when we explore what they can do! In this module, learners start by working through a series of experiments to explore how we can measure force and incorporate our knowledge of forces into design. Alongside, they explore the running blades used by world class athletes, how humanitarian aid can be delivered by parachute and how we can present factual information using good literacy techniques.

Currently based in Singapore, I am a serial entrepreneur with a passion for technology, lifelong learning and problem solving. My background in corporate consulting, business-to-business solution design and implementation allows me to analyse solutions to ensure they can scale. My role is to ensure Neobael leads the way as a robust and innovative edtech platform for young learners through a right mix of online and offline tools, technology, interaction and curricula.
Currently based in Belgium, I am a passionate educator with a wealth of experience in international teaching and curriculum design. I have built a career based on the belief that good education is about the holistic growth of a student, and that there is a space for creativity and curiosity in all classrooms. I lead the design and development of Neobael's curriculum ensuring it remains a curious, creative and integrated learning platform.
Currently based in Singapore, converting an idea into a robust and scalable business model is what excites me the most. Having lived, studied and worked in India, the United Kingdom, and Singapore, I have had first hand experience of understanding how formal education differs in these three countries. Being a parent to two young children, coupled with my experience in teaching and choreographing dance has led me to evaluate the need for alternative, innovative and integrated 21st century learning options for our younger generations.
