Ages 7 – 9
Step into the World of Programming
Specially designed for curious young minds who are new to coding / programming: This course introduces a must-have skill to equip your children with, for their futures. We believe in engaging children to be thinkers and creators through hands-on and project-based learning, for a purpose.
Students will design their own interactive stories, animations and gaming ideas using Scratch, a visual programming language. Students will combine visual blocks creatively and instruct the computer to breathe their creations to life.
The beauty in what we teach is not the language that matters, but the practice of thinking through a problem and applying a solution. This logic is essential to any coding language and applicable even beyond the scope of the course. Want to find out more? Check out our FAQs.

Our student, Jake was featured in #ALittleSomebody, by Lianhe Zaobao 联合早报. Congratulations to Jake and his cute family! We are glad his brother liked the game. Doing our part to train up our young coders to become future leaders in technology!
I can get a head start on Algebra
“I think it is very useful in school as I can get a head start on Algebra on coordinates… which I’m not supposed to learn now. I’m supposed to learn it in P6 I guess..”, Jake, 8 years old, Singapore March 2016 Holiday Programme
