“My children, ages 10 and 7, found the class creative and interesting, and I was impressed by the games they managed to create. Most importantly, they're now excited by the world of programming. Highly recommended!” - Maya, Parent


CODE DJs.. IN THE HOUSEEE!
What's a Code DJ, you say? It's someone who uses their knowledge of coding to make art, music and more!

Learn the tools of the trade needed to be a Code DJ

And what better way to learn that than by assembling a computer yourself. Take a look at the insides of a computer, understand how each component comes together & assemble it.

Turn some tables with code

Learn about sensors and computer inputs by turning your computer into a musical instrument you control.

Light it up!

Music's just one part of the show. Be a showman, code a program that generates your own visual effects that dance to the rhythm of your code.

Make your own poster

Every show needs a crowd & every DJ needs a poster. Use code to make your own interactive poster to let friends, families know about your big debut.

It's... SHOW TIME

Put everything together for your Code DJ debut!
At the end, walk away with the understanding programming isn't just for software engineers, app developers... Even if you're a musician (or by extension, any profession!), code can help you to see the world in a different light: A world that can be programmed!

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.
