Get ready to take your coding and creativity skills to the next level by building a chatbot on Scratch!

  • Available in hybrid format (Online & Offline)
    Parents can opt for the online format, up to a week before the start of workshop
  • Suitable for beginners with no coding experience
  • Kids will learn the basics of computational thinking and sequencing
  • With block-based programming language, Scratch, they will learn to combine coding blocks to create a chatbot application.

All you need to know

Using a block-based programming language called Scratch, we’ll learn to apply the programming concept of ‘lists’ by engaging in a friendly conversation with Mr. Fox!

Join your friends in this short workshop where you get to create your own interactive story where players can “chat” with the characters, and scene.

Learn how to make the character’s responses change in the story according to your answer, and wow your friends and family at the different ways your story changes according to their responses!

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

Parents love us

The happiest hours of your child's week

"I give the thumbs up. The environment is conducive, the trainers are knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. Last but not least, I am impressed by what they had learnt over a short span of time."

"Adam enjoyed himself immensely throughout the 5 days camp. He requested to reach class earlier and when he was home, he continued working on his coding projects after dinner. I’ve never seen him so serious about anything before."

"My 8 year old son loved the course and kept raving about how fun it was. I think he’s also proud that he could create a game which is self motivating. Last night Friday before he slept, he said “I wished there is class tomorrow!”
