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.

Lynette loves her scratch 1, 2 and advanced. There is a need to code. There is a need to compute and put in the logic for actions to take place and determining the actions. Behind each automation, there are a lot of coding.Wan Soon, Mother of Lynette (9)

Advance to the next Scratch Level

Level Up your Scratch skills: Scratch 2 is a natural progression for students to hone their skills from Scratch 1. Your child will be able to reiterate concepts with more challenging activities (practice makes perfect!) and realize their childhood dreams of building the coolest game or exciting blockbuster-like animation.

Combining game design fundamentals and in-depth programming knowledge, they will design their own animations and culminate in creating a project of their own during the exciting hackathon. Want to find out more? Check out our FAQs.

 

Javen had lots of fun during every single lesson and it was quite interesting to see his work; I would have never thought that he would be able to come up with something like that, at his age.Adeline, Mother of Javen (8)

Tinker Garage Camps (Also available as weekend classes)

Tinker Garage Camps are multi-day Tinker inspired coding classes that focus on a particular STEM based or Art based theme, such as LEGO robotics, game design, or anime.  Kids continue to develop new coding skills and hone existing skills all while exploring a new subject.  This allows kids to apply their coding skills to real, concrete problems, while doing something they enjoy!  Learn something new! And have fun!

Physics – Projectile motion

Biology – Cell division

In this day and age, coding skills are no longer just important for software developers.  Coding skills are becoming more and more important for vast ranges of disciplines, from the core sciences, to graphic designers, to sound produces, animators, and more.

Caleb enjoyed the course so much.. He is greatly inspired and created a new game today.. He could also articulate what he has learnt..Trionna, Caleb’s Mother

Open Tinkering Lab

The Open Tinkering Lab is a supervised intermediate coding lab that is designed for kids to work on their own projects or work on a STEM based coding activity provided by the instructor.   An instructor is present in the lab to mentor and supervise students.

If students don’t have their own projects to work on, they will complete a STEM based coding project, such learning about gravity or cell mitosis.

Class Schedule

FURTHER DEVELOP YOUR CHILD’S COMPUTATIONAL THINKING

In this course, students build on what they learned in the Scratch Beginner Class. Kids will learn more advanced programming concepts, build larger, more complex projects, and hone their critical problem solving skills. Concepts such as project planning will be introduced to allow students to experience creating projects from start to finish.

More advanced computational concepts will be taught, stretching and challenging students to think and apply what they have learned mathematically.  Ultimately this course will provide them with a comprehensive programming tool-set that is relevant for both schoolwork and personal hobbies.

The Scratch Advanced class is broke into two, 10 hour sections: Advanced 1 and Advanced 2.

 

My son was fully satisfied and enjoyed the coding class. Everyday after came back home, he immediately sat in front of the PC and did his fun homework. The creativity and interesting are factors to attract him. He will apply for the next class.Eria, Mother of Matsumae Yuto (10)
