SciSpies and Einsteins Clubs:
Are for children who like to hypothesize and experiment, use logical thinking to problem solve, and want to extend their knowledge in science, maths and technology.

DA VINCIS
We live in an exciting time. Technology is progressing at a rate that very few of us can comprehend and there is a shift away from more traditional workplaces to ones where employees ride scooters around the building and are mandated to play video games during their lunch break. Society requires entrepreneurs, creative people with ideas who are not afraid to take risks. That is the essence of the Da Vincis. We take risks. We look at what has been done before, analyse it and build something better. We learn to understand complex principles and work collaboratively to problem solve tasks that would normally be saved for those many years older.
