2-Day Camp for P101 Scratch 1

About this Event

23, 24 Aug

9.30am - 5pm

(Lunch included)

Designed specifically for children who are completely new to programming / coding, this program introduces your children to a lifelong skill that is important for the future.

Children will be using Scratch, a graphics-based computer coding language developed by Mitchel Resnick, LEGO Papert Professor of Learning Research and head of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT media labs.

At the end of the course, students will feel confident and recognize their potential to create, design and develop computational media which they enjoy in their daily lives.

Most importantly, this programme strengthens your child’s logical and problem solving skills which are useful in many aspects of life, be it immediately in their studies (e.g. Mathematics Problem Sums, Science, etc) or in the future.
