Get started on MIT App Inventor
The MIT App Inventor platform is a visual programming language that will kickstart your kid’s interest in mobile app development.
Create Your Very Own Mobile App
With the right tools in hand and the right training, your kid is now ready to create an app that he is proud to show off to you.
Learn User Experience/ User Interface Design
Think from the user’s perspective and how they will act and react to different parts of the mobile interface and feedback to you about it.

Create the next B I G Thing

Google Maps, WhatsApp, Instagram have become our everyday essential apps and your child may be the creator of the next B I G thing that you will use in your life. We nurture future leaders in technology by allowing students to explore the path of mobile app development. The MIT App Inventor Platform allows students to create fully functional mobile apps.

With an intuitive, visual drag-and-drop programming, our App Inventor curriculum guides students to apply computational thinking and creativity to design their own apps and put them to test immediately on their phones. They can build simple fun apps such as Countdown Timer, Racing Game, Robot Shooter Game and more! Hear about it firsthand from our students who got to present their apps and placed 2nd at the MIT App Inventor Summit (USA).

Call To Enquire

Banner for DSA Programme

Direct School Admission - Secondary
The Direct School Admission – Secondary (DSA-Sec) Exercise allows students to seek admission to Secondary 1 based on their talents and achievements.
Offering DSA via Coding
Many schools offer the option of DSA via Coding/Infocomms, which is under Applied Science, Engineering and Technology. Some examples are Dunman High, River Valley High, ACS (I) and SCGS.

The DSA Selection Process
Coding Lab is also an appointed IMDA vendor and we have taught both teachers and students at numerous MOE Schools. This has enabled us to have a deep understanding of the DSA Process.

DSA Into Your School of Choice

In recent years, there has been a shift towards greater emphasis on non-academic abilities. From 2018, all secondary schools will offer up to 20% of their non-IP places through DSA and have stopped using general academic abilities tests for DSA.

Coding, Computational Thinking, Robotics and Infocomms falls under the Applied Science, Engineering and Technology category within the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Currently 26 Schools offer DSA in Coding, Computational Thinking, Robotics and Infocomms. They include HCI, Dunman High, RVHS, ACS (Independent) and SCGS.

My son got into his Secondary School of choice with the expert guidance of Coding Lab! Thank you for all your help and guidance.Father of Avinesh, 12
