Build up your coding foundations and hone your programming superpowers through coding projects that evolve in complexity. And as your technical toolbox and creative confidence expand, you’ll be on your way to discovering how you can apply your coding superpowers to make a difference in the real world.

  • Follow on course to Coding the Impossible 0
  • Develop mastery of and confidence in basic coding concepts
  • Introduction to more advanced coding concepts, select best practices in programming, and complementary holistic soft skills

All you need to know

You’ve started your coding adventure with Scratch. Now, where do we go from here?

It might seem like a long way between where you are now and where you want to be, between the skills you have now, and the big game or animation or website or app you want to build. But good things take time, and we’ve created this space for you to grow into your superpowers and make what was previously impossible, totally possible.

In this module, you’ll build on the basic coding concepts to discover more challenging ones, and establish a solid foundation that will enable you to navigate the world of block-based programming more independently, confidently and creatively.

As you build up your toolbox of skills, you’ll create interactive projects and animated games that weave in more and more creativity and complexity.

Just as importantly, you’ll be introduced to a host of complementary real-world models, soft skills, and mindsets that’ll equip you to direct and regulate your own journey of learning, coding and creating. Think debugging, best practices in programming, considering user flows, and more.

Because as important as technical skills are, it’s kids who are curious about everything, who can communicate their ideas and emotions both logically and creatively, and who aren’t afraid to fail and try again, who will be able to harness their knowledge and abilities to make their mark and create a better future.

Oh! The stuff you'll learn

  • Hone your understanding of basic coding concepts through application; introduction to more advanced coding concepts
  • Exposure to real world applications of programming
  • Practise expressing and communicating your ideas creatively with code
  • Best practices in programming, such as debugging, commenting, and more

Life skills you'll learn

Design Thinking
Logical Thinking
Presentation Skills
Problem Solving

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 learn 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!”
