Tinker Hardware Exploration April 2017 Holiday Camps
This course aims to instill the concept that technology is a creator’s tool to young curious minds. Technology is much more than the smartphones and tablets that they are used to seeing. Through fun hardware projects and games, the students learn and experiment conductivity, input/output, sensors, logic, design and much more. Utilizing the most advanced educational tools developed in the Silicon Valley and MIT Media Lab, including LittleBits, Makey Makey and Scratch, students will come to understand technology as a tool to solve problems and create useful things. By the end of the course, our students would have moved beyond playing mobile and computer games, and begin to see what goes on behind the electronic devices they see everyday.
- Learn the basics of how electricity works
Learn fundamental electronics concepts including circuit, resistance, triggers
Build projects with littleBits hands-on
Design their own electronic projects based on the blocks
What You'll Need:
A Google account to save their Scratch projects.

8:1 Ratio Guarantee
We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.
Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.
Hands-on project based learning
First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
