About Junior Rockstar
Part of the mission of The Gem Museum Singapore is to create a space for our children to explore the "mine to market" journey of gemstones. The Junior Rockstar idea was conceived in 2012, when co-founder Ms. Loke Huiying went to Brisbane Australia to assist Mr. Tay Thye Sun in conducting a Jade course organised by the National Council of Jewellery Valuers, Australia.
Junior Rockstar Program then started to develop as a project by Far East Gemological Institute. We conducted a few pilot runs with community clubs as well as pre-schools before The Gem Museum came into the picture in 2015. Subsequently, the Junior Rockstar Program became popular amongst the homeschooling community in Singapore. To date, we have reached about 500 children, many of whom grow together with us, becoming fine young people.
Currently, Junior Rockstar Program has evolved to include Gem Adventure, Pet Rock and Jewellery Craft. All of which are on-site activities. In 2020, Covid-19 propelled the team to move the mine to market program online. Hence, now we have Gem Adventure online too! Children get to have hands-on activities during the online session, as they will receive a gem kit as part of the program.
Our vision is to grow together with our children in experience, knowledge and passion because we believe that children are a gift of God and they are our precious gems!
