All you need to know
We have landed!
Start off by learning about the Internet, from how clients and servers play a part to how information is able to travel through it. Create your own landing page using HTML and CSS while learning through the ropes in web development in this beginner-friendly course!
Structuring Pages with HTML
Kids will then learn about the role of HTML, basic HTML tags as well as begin using them to create their landing page.
By the end of this class, students will learn the basic coding blocks like events, broadcast and looks, and apply their knowledge through the two projects. They will then be able to share their projects with their friends. Get creative, for the sky is the limit!
Styling Pages with CSS
Kids are introduced to CSS and why we use it separately even though styling can be done in the HTML script and still achieve similar effects. After learning about CSS syntax and how to use selectors, kids are taught three different ways colors can be defined and are allowed to experiment with colors to add to their landing page.

Oh! The stuff you'll learn
An overview of programming and web based technologies – what they are, why they’re so powerful, and how to leverage their potential
Essay writing skills and reflection: Understand the significant inventions and breakthroughs that shape the world we live in today and how they affect you
The Zwicky Box, a method for ideation and brainstorming
How to code a website and personal Wiki page using coding languages like HTML and CSS, and platforms like Github
Life skills you'll learn
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.
"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!”
