Develop and Create

The Advanced Computer Scientists programme develops students to the next level of programming. Students will now Deep dive into app creation for both iOs and Android, develop the maker in them with our extensive micro:bit curriculum, and model advanced concepts across syntax-based programming to create tangible, real-world products.

We have 12 different research areas for students to advance their coding abilities. These research areas span across 3 groups to expose students to the diverse breadth of applications possible with coding.

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?

Testimonials


A project to help me

“I tend to lose track of time while coding or playing computer games. So, I came up with a Python Tkinter project to help me.” 10-year-old Kyran’s Clockc program is pretty amazing – users can make use of its features for everyday use! How cool is it that the young aspiring software application developer coded something on his own to solve his problems?



Adding on to my drawing game

“I decided to add on to a game that I made.” 10-year-old Victoria created this game in our Advanced Computer Scientists – Python Turtle class (P21S – PyTu). She modified it to expand its features and allow users to draw different shapes, thickness, and colours. Who said that programming was just lines of code? You can get creative and draw too!



Helping people to budget

10-year-old Isaac’s project is inspired by how economies have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. “This project helps you to plan your budget, by calculating your spending and earning.” It integrates Math and programming as it calculates the user’s savings and plots a graph to show how much one should save over time.
