Description


Strengthen your Child’s Logical Thinking and Problem Solving Skills with Coding


Class picture of students attending Scratch Beginner I class

Designed by Coding Lab specifically for children (age 7-9) who are completely new to programming / coding, this program introduces our 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 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.

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.
