Crimson Education x Coding Lab presents:

Introduction to Data Analytics: Social Media Insights

Coding is the new literacy, and data is the new fuel. In this program, students from 13 to 16 years old are equipped with tools that will help them learn this new language, introducing them to basic data science concepts that will prove useful in an increasingly digital world.

Run by our lead educator and self-confessed tech geek, Mona Tan, students will learn the essentials of Python (one of the most frequently used programming languages in the world!) including how to install, set up, and run it.

They will then apply their knowledge in a world that they are familiar with: the social media vortex. By the end of the workshop, students will be able to use Python to extract and analyse data from a live Twitter feed!

*Complimentary: A talk on the university and career pathways open to students with computer science skill sets, after Day 1 of the workshop!

Exclusive – Talk on Cracking the Code: Programming Skills & Admissions to Top US/UK Universities

Get details about university and career pathways for students interested in computer science, programming, or STEM in general – where the jobs of the future are.

In a world where technology is constantly disrupting and creating new industries, learning how to code and read data effectively is a valuable investment for a thriving career (ruling over all the robots and automation of tomorrow’s workplaces). But did you know that coding and data analysis can actually be your path to the best universities in the world such as Stanford, MIT, Cambridge, and Harvard, and help you gain an edge over other strong applicants?

In this information packed talk open to the parents of participants of the “Introduction to Data Science” workshop, Foo Yong Ning, the founder of Coding Lab® and MIT Masters graduate, will discuss the importance of coding and data analytics as well as potential career pathways that are enabled by computer science skill sets.

Crimson Education’s Senior Academic Advisor and Yale graduate, Quek Xin Er, will also dissect how students can leverage interests in these areas to build extracurricular portfolios worthy of admissions into the world’s top universities, including case studies of students who showcased their passion in computer science and data science when applying to universities like MIT, Stanford and Cambridge!

Date: Coming soon (June 2019)
Time: 6:30pm to 7:30pm (after Day 1 of the workshop. Refreshments will be served at 6pm)

MEET THE SPEAKERS

Quek Xin Er – Yale University, former head girl and canoe captain at Raffles schools in Singapore

Xin Er was Head Girl and canoe team captain at the Raffles schools. She was accepted at Oxford University to read PPE and Yale University, where she chose to study. She launched her career in the U.S. in economic and management consulting firms working with technology giants in Silicon Valley before returning to Singapore to help other students reach for the best global opportunities.

Foo Yong Ning – S.M (Computational Engineering), MIT and former Regional (Asia-Pacific) Director at Danaher

Yong Ning graduated with a Masters in Computational Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) under a full scholarship and spent a year working in a technology startup in Silicon Valley prior to returning to Singapore, where he was born and grew up in.

Rapidly rising through the ranks and previously a Regional (Asia-Pacific) Director with a US multinational, he realised how big a part his coding knowledge helped in advancing his career. He continues to do programming in his free time as a hobby and founded Coding Lab®. He is a highly sought-after expert and his work with children has been featured on Lianhe Zaobao. He has also been called upon as a consultant with various parenting magazines and is regularly invited to share his views at parenting talks and seminars.

The National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI)
The National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI) is a computing competition organized by National University of Singapore. It is modelled after the IOI (International Olympiad in Informatics) and is one of the most prestigious competitions for programming in Singapore.
Why Take Part in NOI?
Top NOI winners will represent Singapore in the IOI (International Olympiad in Informatics) competition. An Olympiad medal is highly recognised for admissions to top universities around the world.
NOI Preparation Programme
Selected students will receive best-in-class coaching to giving them a high chance of succeeding and attaining a medal in the competition.

Invitation to NOI Training

A highly rigorous programme, our NOI Training course requires a strong foundation in Mathematics, a passion for programming and the fortitude to persevere through countless hours of thinking through highly difficult coding challenges.

Designed and taught by top IOI and multiple NOI Gold Medallists, combined with the signature Coding Lab style of instruction, this course is conducted over one and a half years and will cover topics such as Sorting, Divide and Conquer, Dynamic Programming and Graph Data Structure and Algorithms.

This programme is by invitation only. We have a highly selective systematic process to identify suitable candidates within our current pool of students attending our Python programme. You may also wish to indicate interest by sending us an email at learntocode@codinglab.com.sg. Alternatively, you may also speak to your tutor to indicate your interest.

There’s so much that you can do just using variables, functions, and loops! I understood this when I was learning Python, but only truly appreciated it when I began learning algorithms and C++ to take part in the NOI.Sarah Go, 17, Hwa Chong International
