Coding into a new horizon

Apr 20, 2016   2016 Started with many exciting plans as the kids signed in for a new opportunity to start coding their future.

2015 Closing Ceremony - 2016 Plans

Jan 29, 2016   2015 was an amazing and challenging year. It was our first time teaching kids to code using what our friends from Harvard University taught us during their visit in 2014. It was a great experience where participants learnt the basis of coding and ended up coding their own simple website while also gaining countless of other life skills that will remain with them as they grow up. We have more exiting ideas for the 2016 version of the Coding program based on our learnings and insights from.... Read more

Going wild online

Oct 30, 2015   Overcoming challenges is what makes us strong, after a first successful stage with scratch (coding platform) and the basics of coding through games, a new milestone was set after participants faced a more “real” coding platform and learnt how to code using Processing.JS. Though we had our initial doubts on how they would react with this new platform, we were indeed surprised on their reactions, as they felt as more “professional” programmers and they’ve created....

Coding into a new horizon

Apr 20, 2016   2016 Started with many exciting plans as the kids signed in for a new opportunity to start coding their future.

For the following months we plan to further develop technical skills and for that some “Secret Missions” where assigned for each kid to explore some of the functions of the.... Read more
