For Ages 7-10

Understand the world and its interconnected systems through the lens of the Earth and Life Sciences. At the same time, build up foundational knowledge of computer science concepts as you apply them through thematic projects on Scratch.

  • Available in hybrid format (Online & Offline)
    Parents can opt for the online format, up to a week before the start of workshop
  • No experience necessary
  • Integrate science with code and discover the real world applications of STEM in the world
  • Dive deep into Life Sciences – let’s learn about the life cycle of animals!
  • Build an animation of an animal life cycle in Scratch, a block-based coding language

All you need to know

How does a chicken, mosquito or cockroach transform throughout its life?

Arrange their life cycles in the correct order and discover how this relates to the concept of algorithms. Then, apply your knowledge to build an animation of the animal life cycle of your choice.


Apply your knowledge to build an animation of the animal life cycle of your choice.

In the process, kids develop to creativity, curiosity, and a growth mindset.

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).

For online format, your child will require: 

  • A computer or laptop with a working webcam and microphone, in order to participate in class and for our instructor to check their understanding. Kindly avoid sharing devices.
  • Internet speed of 25Mbps or above. You can check your internet speed here.
  • Familiarity with basic computer functions, such as typing on a keyboard, using a mouse, switching between desktop apps and navigating a browser (opening a new tab, entering URLs)
  • Google Chrome as their default web browser during classes. You may download it here.
  • Installing Zoom is recommended for a smoother learning experience. You may do so here.
    (For macOS computers, please enable these permission settings)
  • We also recommend that you have an adult member of your household standing by for the first 15 mins of the first class to assist with any technical difficulties that may arise.

Oh! The stuff you'll learn

  • Understand that an algorithm is a set of instructions that describes how to perform a task
  • Apply algorithms to a Scratch project
  • Remember the life cycle of the chicken, cockroach and mosquito
  • Understand that different animals (butterfly, mosquito, cockroach, chicken, frog) have different life cycles

Life skills you'll learn

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.

What If..

Should government regulations advise against in-person classes, this workshop will be shifted online

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."

Peek into our classrooms

Have a look behind the scenes

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.
