Our Story

What if kids are intrinsically motivated to learn?

At Saturday Kids, students don't just learn to code. They code to learn.

We cannot teach kids everything there is to know. But what we can do is bring out the curiosity in kids, encourage them to look at problems and think "I can figure this out myself".

Saturday Kids learn how to learn.

Since 2012, we have taught over 5,000 students how to learn through classes in programming, electronics, digital art and design thinking.

Our mission is to use digital literacy classes to transform kids into self-motivated learners who are curious, inventive & resourceful.

Our 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.

Our Team

We love teaching kids and letting them engage meaningfully with technology. We've seen the many amazing things kids can come up with! We want kids to have a chance to use technology as a tool to express their creativity, think critically, solve problems and along the way discover what they're passionate about.

We are a team of teachers, anthropologist, geeks, programmers, product designers, mummies, daddies and changemakers at heart. We've seen how creativity, technology, and design are being used by people around the world to solve humanity's problems and impact people's lives, and we think - "why not start our kids young?"
