One-off Workshop (2 hours session)
No experience necessary
An introduction to basic computer science concepts
Code like a real programmer with a text-based language!
Create interesting games that you can play with your friends and family

All you need to know
Python in a nutshell
From software, to apps and websites, Python’s extensive library provides access to a multitude of system functionalities. You can pretty much code anything with it!
Similar to the English language, the syntax of this text-based programming language is readable and easy to understand. With its gentle learning curve, you can execute powerful functions with minimal code.
Design a Turtle Race
Let’s start off by learning how Python works. Once we’ve mastered the basics, we’ll take a stab at creating your first project!
We’ll design a turtle racing program using Python and the Python turtle library! Experiment with cool features by writing your own code and attempt some debugging.
With the basic programming concepts you’ll learn in Python, you’ll be well-placed to pick up other programming languages in the future. Begin your journey to programming awesomeness!🌟
Oh! The stuff you'll learn
Import and utilize Python libraries in a project
Draw and move your turtles with functions from the Python turtle library
Apply Python concepts such as loops and variables
Life skills you'll 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.
"I give the thumbs up. The environment is conducive, the trainers are knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. Last but not least, I am impressed by what they had learn over a short span of time."
"Adam enjoyed himself immensely throughout the classes. He requested to reach class earlier and when he was home, he continued working on his coding projects after dinner. I’ve never seen him so serious about anything before."
"My son enjoyed it very much and also learnt a lot. Teacher Fritz was friendly and approachable. The presentation on the last day was very useful for parents to know what the course was about."
