BeeBot

Say hi to BeeBot!
BeeBot’s an award-winning little robot that teaches young kids programming concepts, directional skills, math and more. Kids learn to build on their critical thinking and literary abilities by programming BeeBot to…

littleBits Jr

After which, kids learn about circuits & inventing their own gadgets and gizmos with littleBits.
littleBits are fun electronic modules that invite kids to get creative while learning. Just like Lego, littleBits are small, simple, intuitive blocks that snap together with tiny magnets.
Within every kid lies an inner little inventor. With the power to build from imagination, they will gain creative confidence and the curiosity required to build awesome inventions like this:


Scratch Jr

In the second half of this course, kids will translate the tangible programming concepts they've learned onscreen. Kids will get to play with Scratch Junior - an introductory programming language specially designed for young children.

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime. Let's get kids to learn how to learn.
Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make meaningful impact.
