    Meet Elijah – The youngest medallist for the National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI) 2019, one of the most prestigious competitions for coding, organised annually by the National University of Singapore (NUS).
    Modelled after the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), the ultimate international computing competition, NOI works in line with the national goal of inculcating an IT-savvy Singapore, seeking to stimulate interest and awareness of the intricacies of coding within schools. The nation-wide competition consists of a 5-hour session whereby each participant is made to solve solutions for various programming tasks, and then judged based on their accuracy and execution.
    Young(er) and starry-eyed, 13-year-old Elijah has grown from the then inquisitive Primary Fiver into one of Coding Lab’s most stellar teenage talents. We identified him when he was still in Primary School and he has since flourished in our NOI C++ Training programme (Course by invitation only). We are all immensely proud of his growth over the years. Keep it up!

    Another of our eminent representatives at the National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI), Sarah is proud to have clinched an Honourable mention at the annual competition in March 2018, in just less than 6 months of learning to code.
    First introduced to coding through the Python meets Math course, Sarah was deeply inspired by her patient instructor Mr. Foo, whose passion for coding was, in her own words, contagious. Upon completing the course, she gained the courage to explore and a fervent interest to dive deeper into the realm of code — one of which was by taking up NOI as a challenge.
    Besides experimenting with algorithms, Sarah also enjoys baking and taichi fan in her free time. She is also a proud owner of Discus fish.

    Intrigued by financial markets at the tender age of 14, Surya incorporates his knowledge of Python to formulate a stock-trading algorithm, after attending our Masterclass in Data Analytics and Media Insights.
    Having just started his coding journey with our basic Python (S101) course in 2017, the Raffles Institution student has since progressed to S121 and C++ programming. Our ambitious student seeks to further refine his project which he has developed during the workshop with a graphical user interface (GUI) and full forecasting. He also seeks to draw on real-life market data, use machine learning to predict stock price behaviour and implement a feature where the program could scrape the web and build a database of events which may cause stock prices to change, and better advise users.
    Besides the stock-trading algorithm, Surya is actively involved in various coding projects. He trains for the annual National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI) with Coding Lab. Outside of class, he reads on data structures and algorithms, and has created accounts on multiple competitive programming websites such as TopCoder, CodeForces, CodeChef and dunjudge.me.


  • Built a facebook app for the elderly

    Utilising his coding skills for the greater good, our young student, Ian, is proud to conceive a meaningful app for the elderly all by himself. At just age 14, the Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) student has launched his very own app, Silver Plus, which fosters engagement within the elderly community.
    We remember Ian as an intelligent child back when he started off with our basic Python (S101) course in 2017 and he has since then mastered more languages such as C++ programming. He is likely to go far in his endeavours to give back to society while harnessing his technological prowess.

    A huge round of applause for our student Ang Jun Ray, who amongst all other Primary Six students from schools across Singapore, emerged as champion in the HCI Infocomm Challenge 2019!
    The 12-year old boy has come a long way from the inquisitive student two years back. Step by step, he conquered each and every course of our learning roadmap, finally acing our Python S111 course at the mere age of 11.
    Today, having already completed S121, the humble coder continues to hone his programming skills with S121P. Jun Ray has been nothing but enthusiastic, bright and most of all, hardworking. We couldn’t be more proud. Keep up the hard work, young coder!

    Competing with a global pool of participants, these 3 boys represented Singapore and flew all the way to MIT and clinched the 2nd Prize for the Best Poster Award – a FIRST for Singapore! Their app and poster was based on the rise of ride-hailing services and their associated risks, where the team sought ways to monitor and improve passenger safety. And so came the app “Roadsafe — A Better Driving Initiative”, which allows ride-hailing companies to objectively measure their drivers’ performance and safety profile.
    Under the guidance of their tutors, the team set about working judiciously on their app and poster for the conference, which utilised Data Analytics to build a mathematical model to rate drivers’ performance using data collected from mobile phone sensors.
    Always energetic and inquisitive, these boys have truly done Singapore proud and they have never failed to impress their tutors during their App Inventor and Advanced Computer Scientist classes. Keep it up!
