All you need to know

“There’s an app for that!”

Apps are an essential part of our lives, impacting us in so many ways on a daily basis.

Now imagine if anyone, even kids, could go from playing with your phones, to creating their own apps & making that same lasting impact on your lives. Wouldn’t that be awesome?

The good news is… it’s easy to get started & you’d be amazed at what kids can build.

This is Thunkable – a visual programming language that allows kids to drag, drop and connect code blocks together to build their own mobile apps.

Learn the basic principles of user design, sketch out apps with wireframes and then design the app interface.

Then learn fundamental programming concepts and apply them to control the behaviour & logic of your app.

Pick up these fundamentals in a hands-on way by building a series of apps. And then, to cap it off… Put everything you’ve learnt in creating your own app!

Here are some apps you will build!

OH! THE STUFF YOU'LL LEARN!

  1. Introduction & history of the mobile app
  2. Getting started on Thunkable
  3. Wireframe & Design the User Interface
  4. Use cameras, image recognisers & other functionalities
  5. Work with databases to store and read data
  6. Presentation time: Share your project

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime. Let's get kids to learn how to learn.

Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make meaningful impact.

Parents love us

"...and for the first time he is not running to play other people's creations but his own... I am absolutely delighted in the 'mindset' change in my son's attitude." - Emma, Parent
"Thank you for a wonderful and exciting enrichment program that is so much more than academics.. it's fun but for me as a mum, an important future skill set for my son." - Rachel, Parent

Frequently Asked Questions

1. My child is younger than 11, can he/she join this course?

It is recommended that your child try their hand at one of our courses that is aimed at 7 to 10 age band. If you feel your child, younger than 11, has had enough experience with Block Based programming, do write in to hello@saturdaykids.com.

2. My child has their own iOS or Android phone, can he bring it?

Android tablets will be provided during the course.

Kids are encouraged to bring their own phones so that they may continue the learning at home. However, do download the Thunkable Live app (Links: iOS | Android) to see if your phone models are supported.

3. I’ve enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?

We’ll provide all equipment and materials, but you may want to bring a jacket and light snacks in case he/she gets hungry.

4. My child has previously done “Mobile Madness! Make Your Magical App” with Saturday Kids before. Must he/she retake this course? What is the difference?

App Architects uses a different platform from Mobile Madness! Make Your Magical App to provide both iOS & Android compatibility. There are some common concepts but the design interface, functionality, projects built do differ.

Hence students who have taken Mobile Madness do not need to retake this course but should they do so, new material will still be covered.

While students who have taken Mobile Madness do not need to retake this course, they are encouraged to sign up for a Thunkable account and build a simple project to have the best gauge.
