Excited to be a part of the official re-opening of the new, cutting-edge Bukit Panjang Public Library this morning.

We were featured in this video by The Straits Times. The kids had loads of fun being a train and following the commands!

Every child has a special book that they like to read and reread. With technology, we help bring their imagination to life, enabling them to remember and to tell the story in their own special way – the way they want.

Based on the classic, Maisy’s Train, the children went on a Train Adventure with Code and understood the importance of giving specific instructions, as well as the key movement blocks in ScratchJr.

Seeing the look of joy and delight on the kids faces really made our day. We can’t wait to bring more stories to life with more children, with exciting programmes planned at our National Library Singapore!

As part of the official opening series of the Bukit Panjang Regional Library, we also conducted a series of coding workshops for preschoolers. The theme, Train Adventures with code provided loads of fun and entertainment as they learned how to program their trains both physically and digitally.
