Scratch Beginner I : 2-Day Camp for children aged 7-12


Give your child a headstart on Coding and let us keep him/her occupied with our full day 2-day special coding camps. The camps include 10 hours of instruction from our highly-qualified tutors as well as a tinker-hour where they will get to try out the latest toys in tech, first-hand. They will also be treated to a gourmet lunch and tea break at the nearby Avenue 8 restaurant, all at no extra charge!

Join us at our special Full-day, 2 day camp for children (ages 7-12) who are completely new to programming/ coding.

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 their 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.
