Course Description

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.

    • 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
    • Basic familiarity with Scratch is recommended – budding young scientists new to Scratch are recommended to attend Coding the Impossible 0

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).

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.
