SLOⓇ Activity – Creative Minds

Wednesday, 23 December 2020

Creative Minds is an SLOⓇ activity teaching children through hands-on activities to expand their creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills using STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) and Design Thinking Methodologies. Creative Minds allows children from KG through Grade 10 to understand issues and find solutions whilst allowing the students to grow outside of the daily school curriculum.

Our Creative Minds students have been very busy making gifts for others this holiday season.

Last year, our Inspiring Girls, a class of 5th and 6th Grade girls learning about women who excelled in their field of work, visited the St. Augustinus Memory Zentrum with homemade gifts and a show featuring their many musical talents. Due to COVID-19, we could not visit the center this year. Instead, our girls took warm socks and creatively packaged them up as cupcakes for the residents. The socks were delivered on Tuesday, December 15th to the Memory Zentrum in Neuss for the residents to enjoy!

On Saturday, December 12th, Creative Minds held it’s first online zoom session! Students joined the session to make their parents a surprise holiday present! The children enjoyed the session and look forward to surprising their parents this week.

On Sunday, December 13th, more students joined a 2nd zoom session, this time making a special holiday gift for their teachers! The students enjoyed this fun project and were very excited to bring their gifts to their teachers the next day!

Many thanks to Creative Minds Leader and ISR Mom, Susie Seum!
