Weekly Applied Coding Classes for Kids ages 11-14
In Code Meets World, kids take their coding superpowers to the next level: learning about real-world problems and grappling with dynamic data to explore, analyse and communicate the big questions and ideas shaping the world.
A portfolio website and personal wiki…
Interactive web-based projects…
…and data-driven models and simulations that communicate the complexity of changing situations and the world’s most pressing problems, inspired by the likes of the Guardian and the New York Times.
By being a part of the programme, kids will experience a new way of learning that thrusts them into the future – a pedagogy rooted in project-based learning, and an interdisciplinary curriculum inspired by the world’s most pressing challenges and promising ideas.
What happens when Code meets World?
Each term-time module spans 8 weeks, totalling 16 hours of class time.
Code Meets World 1
First, understand the inventions and breakthroughs that shape the world we live in today, then learn languages like HTML and CSS to build your own portfolio site in your own corner of the web.
Code Meets World 2
Code Meets World 3
Discover how code can create powerful models and simulations to communicate daunting data and the urgency of pressing global problems.
Code Meets World 4
Wrap up your epic interdisciplinary coding adventure by connecting the dots between knowledge, application, and real-world implications.

Coding x World is a progressive, year-long program comprising 4 modules, each of which spans 8 weekly classes of 2 hours.
While kids are recommended to complete modules in sequence, students who sign up for one module are not required to sign up for subsequent ones.
This course is recommended for kids ages 11-14 who have prior programming experience in Scratch or other programming languages or platforms.
Each module has been designed to be progressive, and therefore it’s ideal that students should complete Module 1 before moving on to Module 2.

Explorables are interactive computer simulations that encourage users to discover things about a concept for themselves, thus promoting a more active form of learning than reading or listening. You can read more about Explorables here.
Web-based technologies refer to computer languages and software that are used to create content for the web for various purposes.
It’ll benefit your child in terms of technical learning, self-development, and cultivating them as active citizens excited and equipped to contribute meaningfully to the world. Through these 4 modules, kids will learn about programming and web technologies, applying their learnings to interactive, web technology projects. They’ll develop global awareness and create projects that address global realities. Our curriculum also facilitates reflection on their personal strengths, areas of improvement, and more.
Each student who graduates from the programme also takes away a series of tangible coding projects – such as a portfolio website, animation, data-driven simulation, etc – that demonstrates what they’ve learned throughout the year.
