Tinker Introduction to Blocks-based Programming (AT100)
This course is designed for children to learn fundamentals of robotics and programming. Utilizing the most advanced educational tools developed in the Silicon Valley, including Dash & Dot and littleBits, students will come to understand technology as a tool to solve problems and create useful things. Students will practice giving commands to the robots in class by working on puzzles and projects.
Basic concepts in mathematics and programming, such as time, speed and conditionals, will be taught during lessons. By the end of the course, our students would have moved beyond playing mobile and computer games, and begin to see what goes on behind the devices they have been using.
Session 1 - 2 : Introduction to Robotics
Session 3 - 7 : Concepts in Robotics
Session 8- 9 : Robotics for the Real World
At First Code, one of our classroom mottos is Do Things, Tell People. Join us for our Demo Day event where our students proudly showcase their completed projects to family and friends at the end of term! More details will be provided by email once your enrollment is confirmed.

8:1 Ratio Guarantee
We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.
Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.
Hands-on project based learning
First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
