About this Event

NOTICE: Due to public holiday, class on 25th Dec 2020 (Fri) will be rescheduled to 26th Dec 2020 (Sat)

Get your passport ready – we’re embarking on an adventure in coding and robotics! In this course for preschoolers, tangible (non-screen) programming and basic programming converge in an imaginative learning journey that’ll teach kids about collaboration and team work along the way.

  • Suitable follow on course to Bubs & Bees: Buzz with Beebot & ScratchJr
  • Explore the possibilities of code and robotics with Sammy the robot and Hopscotch, a bite-sized coding platform for kids
  • A combination of tangible and on-screen programming that’ll prepare kids to take on block-based programming with Scratch
Get your passport ready for the next stage of your learning adventure!
In Tiny Travellers, kids discover new worlds in coding and robotics through a fun-filled combination of physical and on-screen challenges and activities.

Preschoolers are an energetic bunch.

Through unplugged activities we leverage the power of kinesthetic learning to channel that energy towards a play-based approach to learning about the world of tech.

With the help of their new friend, the award-winning Sammy the Robot, kids get building and programming together to help him overcome challenges and perform quests on Code Island.

Weaving in construction with concepts like sequencing – kids learn about programming concepts hands-on; with content interspersed with play, teamwork and inquiry, there’s never a dull moment on Code Island.

Next, kids will be introduced to Hopscotch, a bite-sized block-based coding platform that allows kids to explore applying their imagination to code.

In acclimatising kids to a new programming environment and gradually building their literacy, they’ll create their own projects applying the tangible programming concepts they’ve learned, like conditionals, loops, and sequencing.

Oh! The stuff you'll learn..

  • Basic coding, building, and robotics through a synergistic, thematic combination of tangible and on-screen activities
    • Inspire confidence and familiarity with code by applying programming concepts with Hopscotch and Sammy the Robot
    • Use what you’ve learned to navigate fun challenges and quests around Code Island, developing important soft skills like teamwork, collaboration and communication along the way!

    Life skills you'll learn

  • Creative confidence
    • Logical thinking
    • Presentation skills
    • Problem solving

    Our Pedagogy

    No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. 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 a meaningful impact.

    Parents love us

    "...and for the first time he is not running to play other people's creations but his own... I am absolutely delighted in the 'mindset' change in my son's attitude." - Emma, Parent
    "Thank you for a wonderful and exciting enrichment program that is so much more than academics.. it's fun but for me as a mum, an important future skill set for my son." - Rachel, Parent
