Coding for Kids - Scratch Intermediate Course (Ages 8-12) @ Upp Bukit Timah
Further Develop your Talented Child in Computational Thinking
In this program, students build on what they have learnt in the beginner class. Students will take their understanding of coordinates and sensing to a deeper level. The concept of project planning will also be introduced to allow students to better develop bigger, more complex and more interesting programming projects.
We will revisit each of the key elements (Animations, Stories and Games) and introduce more advanced techniques. These advanced computational concepts will provide students with a wider tool set to better translate their creativity and imagination into reality.
Experience the Coding Lab advantage with our MIT-inspired curriculum. Voted "Best Coding Curriculum" by parents, our award-winning workshops challenge students to think logically and mathematically, with a strong emphasis on inquiry-based learning and open ended instruction.
