We nurture future leaders in technology, so we recognise that it’s important to be tech-literate in today’s world. Here are some tech gift ideas to keep our teens curious and hungry for more knowledge:

Raspberry Pi

Nope, we’re not talking about raspberries or the magical 3.14 number. 

The Raspberry Pi is an affordable, pocket-sized computer that could be the key to unlocking the door of physical computing. You can connect it to a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Learn with Scratch, use Python, make websites and more!

It makes picking up computing more accessible and seamless, so people are able to harness the power of computing to solve problems and express themselves creatively.

Laptop or Tablets

Remember the moment you first got your own desktop or laptop? 

Our ACS student exploring the course

Perhaps now is the time for your teen to experience that moment too. Many of us have fond memories of tinkering with our own blogs, using Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, playing Maple Story, navigating Friendster and the old Facebook. Whether it’s a laptop or tablet that you purchase, it will be a great time for your teen to take on the responsibility of a device, hone his or her typing skills, get familiar with technology and have knowledge and information at his or her fingertips! 

Psst, Apple fans! Tertiary students (University, Polytechnic, JC, ITE) can get Apple Education prices.

Kiwico Crates

At a complete loss as to what fun and enriching presents you should get and you only know the child’s age? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. 

Need a shortcut to letting your child DIY things – without having to source for the materials? The STEM projects and kid-friendly content by KiwiCo is delivered in a crate. With so many crate choices, they have filtered it out by ages (from 0 to 104 years old) and various interests for you to narrow down the perfect one.
