What's Next?

Move on to our Regular Weekly class and advance your real-world programming skills!

Why Computhink?

Maximum learning in small classes

All our classes are kept small to ensure maximum attention to your child's learning needs. By keeping the class small, we ensure that each kid gets the guidance and coaching he or she needs to bring their imagination to life through programming. Besides allowing us to get to know your kid better, we also encourage the kids in our classes to get to know one another and this is better facilitated in a small group setting.

Hands-On Activity-Based Learning

We believe that kids learn best when they do it themselves in a fun environment. That is why we ensure that each kid is given a laptop to work their own respective projects and try their hand in the programming projects and activities. It is heartening each time we see the kids beaming and being proud of themselves when they get the code to work as they want it to.

Our Teaching Philosophy

This idea that kids will learn anything that they want to, when they are given the freedom to create, inspires and drives our teaching philosophy. In this, we are influenced by the work of Sugata Mitra (Educational Researcher) whose research demonstrates the effect that a child’s innate curiosity and interest have on learning complex subjects outside the normal school environment. At Computhink, we adopt a 3-pronged approach to teaching kids which is guided by these 3 questions by the child: (1) What can I do?; (2) How can I do it?; and (3) What else can I do?

Follow-On Mastery Classes

Like any learning, learning to program is best done through regular practice and with guidance from experts. And this is why we offer the Computhink Code Club classes which provides regular weekly practice while exposing the kids to various programming languages such as intermediate Scratch, HTML, Python and Javascript. Kids will learn how the same basic programming concepts are built upon and applied in other programming languages to do different things such as building websites and creating mobile apps and games. It is through regular and varied practice that promotes mastery and that is what we aim to do at our Computhink Code Club.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Scratch Programming?
Scratch is a programming language that is based on visual blocks. Kids can drag and drop code blocks and join them together to create and share interactive media such as stories, mini-games, and animations. Scratch is also an online community and kids can share their creation with people from all over the world.

As kids create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically, which are all essential 21st century skills they must inculcate. Scratch is developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. See http://scratch.mit.edu.

What is Scratch good for?
Scratch is an ideal programming language for kids to create and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animations. Scratch helps kids express their creativity, work collaboratively and think systematically in order to solve problems in code.

Besides the ease of learning a programming language, Scratch is also an active online community of kids all around the world learning and creating programs. Projects created are shared publicly, and aspiring coders can browse other student’s projects, view the code behind and even modify other student’s code.

How does attending the Beginner Scratch class help in laying the foundation for my kid’s future?

Developments in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Mobile Connectivity, Big Data, and the Internet of Things, have raised the collective capabilities of these technologies and combined them into networked services that would soon render a number our current skill-sets obsolete. It used to be thought that computers and machines will only be able to replace jobs which are repetitive in nature, however, it is estimated that 40-60% of jobs will soon be replaceable by computers.

The ability to understand and write computer programmess will empower your kid with the skills to navigate, understand and perhaps create this computational future. In whichever profession that your kid may enter in the future, it is certain that programming and logical thinking skills would be a key part of it.

How does the Beginner Scratch class differ from the Scratch Coder class?

The Beginner Scratch class is the basic introductory class for students who did not have prior experience in programming. This is why we teach kids using Scratch, developed by MIT, which comprises visual blocks which kids can simply drag and drop, with minimal typing. In this way, kids can quickly create fun games and animations, while at the same time, learn basic computer programming concepts.

The Scratch Coder class is developed for kids who have attended the Beginner Scratch classes or are rather new to programming. The Scratch Coder class provides intermediate level instruction for kids to further their interest in programming and comprises many more activities and projects of progressive challenges so that kids can master the programming concepts through varied practice. The Scratch Coder class is only available weekly.

The Scratch Coder class is part of the Computhink Code Club which aims to expose your kids to various programming languages and provide regular weekly guided practice so that kids can continue to hone their programming skills.

What is the Computhink Code Club?
The intent of the Computhink Code Club is to provide regular weekly programming practice while exposing the kids to various programming languages such as Scratch, HTML, Python and Javascript. Building on the basic programming concepts from the Beginner Computhink for Kids! class, at the Code Club, kids will learn how these same basic concepts are applied and used in the other programming languages to do different things such as building websites and creating mobile apps and games. It is through regular and varied practice that promotes mastery and that is what we aim to do at Computhink Code Club. Our goal is to develop your kid’s interest in programming and guide him or her to reach a skills level to be comfortable enough to build their own websites or creating suitable apps to solve everyday issues and make things better.

The Computhink Code Club pass will allow your kid to:

  • Choose 4 classes of 1.5 hours each (Each pass gives a minimum of 4 classes to be utilised within a 3-month period);
  • Select the preferred days according to the pass (Our classes are offered Mondays to Sundays to accommodate your busy schedules);
  • Easily reschedule any missed classes (Can’t attend the previously scheduled class? No problem. Let us know to reschedule the class for your child within that week); and
  • Access to all our available classes (Scratch? Javascript? Python? All our available classes are open to pass holders).
When are the classes for Computhink Code Club?
The Computhink Code Club classes are offered weekly, with different days for each module. Check our computer coding classes for kids schedules for more information. Based on your kid’s experience in programming, we will recommend the classes for your kid to start off. However, you may also make the choice for your kid. Do let us know if you wish to do so.
