Start learning about Scratch
Scratch is a visual programming language that will kickstart the students’ interest in coding.
Be exposed to Programming Blocks
Motions, Events, Control and many more are must-have essentials for every Scratch creation.
Logical Thinking and Problem-Solving Skills
How do I make my character move in circles? Why isn’t this code running the way I want it?

 

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.

It was a great, fun and challenging holiday for my boys who attended coding lab. They attended the Scratch 1 class without any prior background on coding and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Now they will discuss what kind of games to develop with the new basic skill set that they had just acquired.Chor Yong, Mother of Yan Liang (11) and Yan Zhong (9)
