“Learn to Think. Think to Learn”.
ThinkersBox‘s motto sounds profound. Kids’ enrichment classes are very specialised nowadays, you got Language, Arts, Science, Creative, and now Cognitive learning
Boon Kang and Boon Yee were invited to a trial session at ThinkersBox to discover more. According to Collins dictionary, the definition of Cognition (noun) is :
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
“the mental act or process by which knowledge is acquired, including perception, intuition, and reasoning”

To quote from ThinkersBox :
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Learning, just like playing a sport, requires us to have the right skills. In the same way, we can train in sports skills, we can improve our learning skills for more effective and successful learning.
ThinkersBox aims to identify a child’s attributes from the early foundation years. We parents know kids learn at different pace.
– What if we can identify our kid’s weak areas earlier?
– What if we can understand our kids’ learning ability better?
– Can we then help them to cope better?
Some kids might suffer from the following symptoms :
– inability to focus during class
– forgetting about yesterday’s lesson
– struggle to differentiate words which sounds or look alike (comprehension)
If your child is facing difficulties coping in school, ThinkersBox’s assessment might allow us to understand better. Through a series of questions, ThinkersBox’s profiling will tell us more about our kids’ attributes. Click for more assessment details.
Daddy tries to recall some of ThinkerBox’s quiz below. Kids are accessed through a series of Q&A, pictorial comparison and sometimes jigsaws.

Some of the quiz requires careful analysis, or elimination of wrong answers, before we can pick the correct answer. It can be challenging for adults too :p
ThinkersBox offer modules for kids from 5 to 12 years old, do click for their training modules. We would like to take this opportunity to thanks ThinkersBox for hosting us 🙂
It was an eye opening trip for Daddy.
