  • Build coding projects in Scratch to visualise to explore your understanding of Science topics

All you need to know

Learn about various STEM professions and build Scratch projects related to fields like marine biology, mechanical engineering, and environmental science. In each session, you’ll learn about a new STEM profession, participate in a coding challenge inspired by real world STEM applications, and build a coding project based on what you’ve learned about the week’s topic.

Here’s an example of what this looks like:

Meet a marine biologist and a marine engineer.

See how they work together to improve the conditions for marine life by cleaning up plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.  Build a Scratch project to simulate the cleaning of the ocean!

Use your arrow keys to control the diver. Collect the plastic trash and celebrate the increase in the marine life!

Meet a mechanical engineer and materials scientist that solve the challenge of efficiently sorting through recycling waste!

Magnetic forces can help us do much much more than just sticking our messages on the fridge.

Meet an environmental scientist and an ecologist as they explore the tundra biome and come up with ideas to help reduce climate change.

Research some facts, discuss with the class and do a quiz to set the context for the project. Then, build on your project using these new ideas.

Sounds awesome? This is just the start of an adventure at the intersection of coding and science!

Synergising basic concepts in science and beginner-friendly applications in code, in each class, kids process the content they’ve learned by building mini projects in block-based language Scratch, culminating in a final project at the end of term that expresses what they’ve learned.

In the process, kids develop creativity, curiosity, and a growth mindset, and in subsequent modules learn to use planning and design thinking to prototype solutions to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Science and coding outcomes are aligned to K12 Standards (K12 CS Framework, Next Generation Science Standards, Singapore MOE Science Syllabus, National Curriculum in England Science Programme).

Oh! The stuff you'll learn

  • Bring the science you learn in school to life by integrating it with coding and seeing how it’s applicable in real life
  • Learn about a variety of science and engineering professions, what they do and the related science topics
  • “Visit” different parts of the world to see science in action
  • Build coding projects in Scratch to visualise to explore your understanding of Science topics
  • Learn to set goals, identify knowledge gaps and list steps to achieve your goals
  • Practice defining problems and improving projects based on feedback

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

"My child loved Science with Code, and asked why his school can't teach like this! Looks like you are transforming the way science is taught."

"In Science with Code, we actually get to do hands-on stuff like coding; we get to learn how things get invented in real life, instead of just using them."

"YES! I LOVE IT SOOOOOO MUCH."

Your kid will love it.

If your kid doesn't think it's the best thing ever after attending the first 2 days of holiday camps (or first 3 weeks of term classes), and would like to withdraw, we'll issue you a 50% credit note of the amount paid.
