“The program was really good … I’ll definitely recommend it to my friends” Issac Mitchener, student of Jan 2016 holiday program
“.. the program is really useful… will definitely come back for the intermediate class”, Lachlan Kong, student of Jan 2016, holiday program
“… I tried [Scratch] a few times at home but I never really understood it. [After the workshop] I understand pretty much what every [Scratch] block does”, Flynn, student of Jan 2016, holiday program”
“It is really great. You learn how to code games and they teach you step-by-step” , Tiara, student of Jan 2016, Perth Australia holiday program”

Coding is basically programming; explaining to the computer what you want it to do.
Let your child unleash their creativity to create something new. They get to break down processes which develop problem- solving skills as well as critical thinking skills.
In today's world where everything is based on technology, children need to learn how technology works and programming.
Watch this video and hear why you should learn to code from some of the leaders in of the digital age:
"Coding is the new literacy. To thrive in tomorrow’s society, young people must learn to design, create and express themselves with digital technologies."
Professor of Learning Research and
Head of Lifelong Kindergarten group at the
MIT Media Lab
"An understanding of computer science is becoming increasingly essential in today’s world. Our national competitiveness depends upon our ability to educate our children—and that includes our girls—in this critical field."
Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer, Facebook
"Learning to write programs stretches your mind, and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful in all domains."
Bill Gates, Chairman, Microsoft
"Learning to code is useful no matter what your career ambitions are."
Arianna Huffington, Founder, The Huffington Post
About the program
Designed specifically for young learners who are completely new to programming, this program empowers our children with the fundamental literacy to creatively apply computational thinking to solve problems and translate their imagination to reality.
Children will be using Scratch, a graphic based computer programming 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 feel empowered to create, design and develop computational media which they enjoy in their daily lives. They start their journey to build the next Angry Bird or Flappy Bird here.
