The work with the kids
There is a Chemistry Lab, an Electronics Lab, tools and different construction kits on many levels. Possibilities for advanced computer use, graphics work, photography, robotics, microscope use and much more.
Groups at Moleque de Ideias have around 8 children and various adults of different education, expertise and interests. Each adult brings their personal background to enrich the children and projects to help them develop their knowledge.
The children organize themselves in taking into consideration what they wish to do and the resources available at the office and they set out to perform their ideas. This way they live the multi-disciplinary production process, interact with other children and adults, deal with the organization of knowledge and develop their critical sense and their creativity.
And, most importantly, they widen their self-knowledge and self-love, getting in touch with their talents.
The children use many competences to make their ideas feasible. They imagine websites and blogs, animation videos, they produce films, robots, simulations, they write songs, create choreographies with special effects, they learn about sustainability and urban agriculture and much more! Anything that comes to the imagination and that is possible in the creation diversified environment at Moleque de Ideias.
The work is destined to children who want to pass freely through all the areas of creative expression.
Since 1996 Moleque de Ideias has been intensively writing, photographing and recording the work sessions with the children. Moleque keeps studying these records and has developed a system to follow their knowledge development.
