Autumn 2017 School Holiday Program

Coding for kids is all about creativity! And it has a lot of fun! Want to find something different this coming school holiday to inspire your kids’ talent and passion in learning? You should consider coding.

We are proudly providing dynamic, inspiring and full of fun coding programs to young kids of year of age 7+. The details can be found below.

+ Scratch is a fully visual programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab for the purpose of teaching programming to teens and other first-time programmers.
* Please bring your own laptop computer for Day 1 and Day 2, either Windows or MacBook, as we will install the learning software onto it. If you need to rent our laptop, it’s extra $20 for each day. On Day 3, we will provide devices and Lego® WeDo 2.0 learning kits.
^ Lego WeDo 2.0 is the newest product from LEGO® developed to engage and motivate young kids’ interest in learning science- and engineering-related subjects, through the use of motorized LEGO® models and simple programming.

We are serious about teaching kids computer coding. To guarantee the quality, we only keep a small number of kids (usually 6 to 8) in a class, so be quick if you really don’t want to miss! Enrollment can be done online.

Meanwhile, feel free to try those FREE courses on our website.
