Coding Station

Scratch 3

Welcome to the vibrant world of Junior Coders! Here, children aged 7 to 12 years embark on an exciting journey into the realm of block-based coding using Scratch 3, developed by MIT University Media Lab, USA.

Junior Coders delve into the creative universe, collaborating on projects such as games, stories, animations, math quizzes, and science projects. Rooted in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), our curriculum enhances children's skills in creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and collaboration.

The coding curriculum covers a spectrum of concepts, including sequence and parallel programming, loops, conditions, events, variables, lists, cloning, broadcasting, operators, Makey Makey electronic circuits, Micro::Bit programming, and much more!

Join us for an immersive and educational experience in the world of coding.

Robotics

Junior Coders offer a three-level Robotics program tailored for specific age groups: Robotics 1 (7 to 8-year-olds), Robotics 2 (9 to 10-year-olds), and Robotics 3 (11 to 12-year-olds). The program incorporates both block-based coding and text-based coding in Javascript. Children will engage with Sphero robots, MBot robots, and Lego educational robots, providing a hands-on experience that makes learning about Robotics enjoyable. In the age of Artificial Intelligence, understanding Robotics is crucial, and we invite you to join our Robotics program to embark on an exciting learning journey.
