Coding Camp

 

The 4-day holiday camp is a specially curated camp for the PSLE 2020 Marking Week Holidays. We want to help engage children in a challenging and fun way during this period of extended home-based learning.

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. The class sizes are kept small at 6 students per class to ensure teachers can spend time helping individual students.

1. Proprietary Learning Management System

Student Web is Computhink’s proprietary system for our student’s learning needs, where students will log in every day, and find notes, exercises and short videos explaining concepts for the day.

2. Online Virtual Classroom

Virtual Classroom conducted over secure Zoom Web Conferences. Not to worry, we are technology experts and have put in a secure environment to ensure the online safety of your child.

3. Online Coding Platform

(www.scratch.mit.edu) this is where your child will have their own account, and where they will code their daily projects. Projects and accounts are stored online and accessible forever.

4. Online Assessments

Online Quizzes and Assignments – Students will be tested on understanding via online quizzes and assignments.

FAQ

Item1

Is this coding camp conducted online?

Yes! This camp will be conducted fully online! Not to worry, we have been doing fully online classes since early 2020 and have a fully equipped Online Virtual Classroom for the best online learning experience for your child!

What do I need for the Virtual Classroom?

Your child will need a laptop/ computer with a strong wifi-connection. Please ensure that the web camera on the laptop is in good working condition.

Recommended system:
CPU: Intel Core i3-3210 3.2 GHz / AMD A8-7600 APU 3.1 GHz or equivalent,
RAM: 2GB

For parents with younger kids, you may need to stay with your child during the first lesson to help them operate the computer (e.g. where to click, and how to switch windows etc).

Does my child need to attend the same time slot for each day?

Yes, students will attend the same time slot for every day of the 4-day camp.

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 creativelywork 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 Camp 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.

Is there any pre-requisites to joining this class?

No prior programming experience needed, this class is suitable for beginners.
