Testimonials:









“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”

Why Learn Coding?
















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.

Scratch Beginner (9 to 12 years old)
Develop your Child’s Logical Thinking and Problem Solving Skills with Coding
[Animation | Games | Stories]


Designed specifically for children (age 9-12) who are completely new to programming / coding, this program introduces our children to a lifelong skill that is important for the future.

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.

Day 2: Animation
           Hands on experience and application of techniques.
           Making your animation come alive (music, colour, costumes)

Day 3: Telling stories
           Creating a storyboard using scratch
           Create your own characters, coordinate interactions
           Manage timing and broadcasting of these events

Day 4: Gaming time

Scratch Intermediate(9 to 12 years old)
Further Develop your Talented Child in Computational Thinking

[Computational Logic | Mathematics]


In this program, students build on what they have learnt in the Scratch Beginner class. Concepts such as project planning will be introduced to allow students to have through-the-line experience in the development of bigger, more complex and more interesting programming projects.

More advanced computational concepts will be taught, stretching and challenging our students to think and apply what they have learnt mathematically; ultimately providing them with a comprehensive programming tool-set that is relevant both in schoolwork and as a personal hobby.
