In this course for beginners, preschoolers programme a robot to boogie while picking up a new language!
- One-off Workshop (2 hours session)
- Suitable for preschoolers who are beginners in both coding and the English language
- Explore tangible programming while getting introduced to English
Meet BeeBot, an award-winning little robot that introduces preschoolers to programming concepts, directional skills, math and more. With Beebot, we get to learn about code through tangible programming!
Preschoolers build on their critical thinking, technical understanding and literacy as they get creative programming BeeBot to complete exciting quests!
All while learning the importance of teamwork, communication and collaboration with their peers along the way!
Learn Phonics with Beebot
With Beebot at their side, preschoolers get immersed into an English-speaking environment as they learn to sound out introductory phonics and basic classroom phrases in English.
Beyond language skills, they get to pick up fundamental programming concepts by learning about sequencing and directionals, and apply their new coding superpowers to help Beebot perform quests!
Kids are like sponges – the younger they are, the more they absorb.
The basics of learning a new language are confidence and lots of practice. With preschoolers, it is a good time for them not only to be immersed in an English speaking environment, but also the chance to put what they have learnt immediately into good use.
They will be taught simple English phrases which will be used when learning basic coding concepts. This would reinforce their comprehension while allowing them to practice in the right context.
By being exposed to the workings of technology early, they don’t just develop a new medium for creativity and problem-solving – they also get an early peek under the hood of how digital experiences are designed and engineered.
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.
