Why Do Coding?

As digital technology is taking the world by storm, Singapore is also driving initiatives to be a Smart Nation. Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education has been the often-talked about in many educational curriculums across the world in order to equip students with the skills and knowledge to take on the technological world.

In coding, the only limit is your imagination. Spark the interest of coding in your child and let the creative minds of theirs blossom. They can do so even after they have completed the workshop. The software used in the workshop is free for download and the knowledge is for them to keep.

Give your child a head start in STEAM education by enrolling them in our coding workshops. These workshops aim to teach students analytical and logical thinking skills through designing codes for animations and games. Analytical and logical thinking skills definitely complement the learning of Mathematics where these skills are essential.
