Say hi to BeeBot!
BeeBot’s an award-winning little robot that teaches young kids programming concepts, directional skills, math and more. Kids learn to build on their critical thinking and literary abilities by programming BeeBot to…
Dance and draw cool geometrical shapes
Complete an obstacle course that kids’ll get to design themselves
After which, kids learn about circuits & inventing their own gadgets and gizmos with littleBits.
littleBits are fun electronic modules that invite kids to get creative while learning. Just like Lego, littleBits are small, simple, intuitive blocks that snap together with tiny magnets.
Within every kid lies an inner little inventor. With the power to build from imagination, they will gain creative confidence and the curiosity required to build awesome inventions like this:
In the third part of this course, kids will translate the tangible programming concepts they’ve learned onscreen. Kids will get to play with Scratch Junior – an introductory programming language specially designed for young children. Kids learn how to code on an iPad by snapping together programming blocks to create…
Interactive animations where characters come to life.
Their very own original games that they can play with their friends!
Kids are just like sponges – the younger they are, the more they absorb. In this fun and interactive course, kids get an introduction to computational thinking through hardware and software programming. By being exposed to technology early, kids also learn to become creative thinkers and develop problem solving skills!

Life skills you'll learn
Skills that last a lifetime
Saturday Kids don't learn to code. They code to 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.
Parents love us
Children from our camp enjoyed themselves exploring and learning what the different animation tools could do for them. They were particularly excited to see their own creations come alive.
I've been meaning to write to you to let you know that my son loved his workshop with Saturday Kids in June and I will be enrolling my daughter too for the beginners course that you are doing in October
It is wonderful to hear their enthusiasm and excitement when they talk about their Scratch classes, the words epic and awesome are frequently used!
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.
