Young Computer Scientists
Ages 7 – 9
Think and Tinker
Young Computer Scientist marries software (coding) and hardware (mBot, Makey-Makey, micro:bit) and is a collaborative platform for students to be little Mathematicians and Scientists. The nature of this course is one that is of experimentation in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) field and of endless possibilities waiting to be discovered!
We have 12 different research areas to expose students to diverse fields of application for coding, ranging from Biology to Augmented Reality (AR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). These research areas have been carefully curated by our curriculum team and span across 3 groups.
Students are required to complete at least 6 (min) – 8 (recommended) research areas before progressing to the next level. Research areas proceed based on a pre-selected schedule curated by Coding Lab tutors which expose your child to all 3 groups by the time they complete at least 6 research areas. Want to find out more? Check out our FAQs. Or find out some cool information that our kids learn in our YCS classes in our blog’s Did You Know? series.

Code x Tinker Camp!
We provide high quality teaching with a challenging MIT inspired curriculum in a tech-immersive environment. Watch how our students learn with us in this exciting video.
Who is Faster? A 2-player battle with Makey Makey
Who has the faster reaction? Watch our 2 students, William and Joshua pit their skills against each other in this fun game coded by Joshua during one of our Tinkering Garage sessions. Using Play Doh and Makey Makey for the physical input, they must compete to hit the buzzer faster and earn enough points to win the game! Beware: Hitting the buzzer before the Go button shows will incur negative point penalties.
Joshua and William Teach Coding : Math and Reaction Time with Makey Makey
Our students, Joshua and William are back! This time, they are going to teach us how to code! In this video, Joshua takes us through his code, explaining how he programmed and designed his game, which measures the speed of reaction time, with variables that display key stats (Fastest Time, Average Time, Total TIme, and more).
