Frequently Asked Questions

A: Sandbox.asia provides your child with a foundation in digital technologies that we believe will be commonplace in the working world of the future. In addition to the concepts of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths), programme participants are exposed to soft skills such as teamwork and collaboration, project planning and management, structured problem-solving, communications and creative thinking.

We also aim to be competition-focused, and will organise internal events, as well as participate in larger, external competitions and events.

A: Sandbox.asia offers options for beginners to more advanced learners. We currently offer three distinct programmes beginning with our holistic 12-week Youth Foundation Programme designed to give students a base level understanding of digital technologies including Robotics, Application Development, Gaming Development and Streaming.

Our Intermediate and Advanced programmes are currently split into four separate streams covering Robotics, Application Development, Game Development and Streaming. Participants can opt to sign up for more than one Intermediate or Advanced programme at a time, depending on scheduled availability.

A: We cater for all levels of ability. For those who may already have  experience in the areas covered within our Foundation programme, you can opt to join our intermediate or advanced classes specialising in robotics, game development, application development and/or streaming or a combination thereof. Please contact us if you have any queries in relation to this.

A: All our classes are conducted in English.

A: Our current classes are designed to run in 3-hour blocks per session.

A: Our current programmes are designed for children between the ages of ten and sixteen. This is to ensure they are able to actively participate and follow our classes, which requires a basic understanding of Mathematics. Please note that we are very happy to accommodate younger children, where possible and appropriate. We do ask that you contact us ahead of time to arrange for your child to join our trial session so that he/she may be evaluated before signing up.

A: Ideally, we take in new students only at the start of each new programme, but will consider new students if they have missed just the initial week or two. Please contact us directly to discuss further.

A: We understand that people change their minds. We have always encouraged students to stick with our programmes for at least the first three to four weeks, to be sure they have given it a fair chance. That said, if things aren’t working out after the first two weeks, you can always just ask for your money back.

A: No, everything is provided for, just attend, participate and learn. If you would like to use your own laptop, please contact us for the minimum technical specifications required.

A: Generally, if a student misses a week of class, they can catch up. Our facilitators will spend additional time with that student the following week to coach them back on track.

A: We believe everyone learns and engages at their own pace and age maturity levels so the answer is NO. Instead, we provide struggling students with extra guidance and coaching to bring them back up to speed.
