June Holidays

Coding Camp

The 8-day holiday camp is a specially curated camp for the June 2021 School Holidays. We want to help engage children in a challenging and fun way during their holidays.

On each day of the camp, students will be taught new programming concepts, and practice how to apply them in their daily coding challenges. Students will be grouped into classes with similar ages and capabilities. Class sizes are kept small at 6 students per class to ensure teachers can spend time helping individual students.

 

1. Physical / Virtual Classes

Choose from either physical classes at Computhink Kids SG @ Toa Payoh Public Library or our virtual classes conducted over secure Zoom Web Conferences.

2. Proprietary Learning Management System

Classes are supported with our Student Web where students can login every day and find notes, exercises, short videos and class recordings.

3. Block Coding Platform

Minecraft Education Edition accounts are provided (free) for students during the camp. This is where your child will have their own account, and where they will code their daily projects.

4. Regular Assessments

Students will be tested on their understanding via quizzes/ assignments/challenges to ensure they are following well.
