Camp Outline

At Computhink, we believe that the best way to learn to program is when your child’s intrinsic creativity and inspiration is motivated to create and make their very own programs.

Roblox is a popular game platform for young kids, and your child may already be obsessed with playing games in Roblox. Instead of just playing games, wouldn’t it be better to transfer your child’s interest from playing games to making their very own games and sharing it with their friends in Roblox?

Joining this camp will help students learn the basics of LUA Programing language, design game environments in 3-D and help them gain essential Computational Thinking skills that would be helpful to whatever subjects they will learn in the future. The class sizes are kept small at 6 students per class to ensure teachers can spend time helping individual students.

Learning Tools

The RobloxThinker Camp is a specially curated camp for the 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. The class sizes are kept small at 5 students per class to ensure teachers can spend time helping individual students.

1. Computhink Student Portal

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

2. Online / Onsite Classrooms

Onsite Classes are conducted with Safe Distancing Measures in place in our spacious classrooms in Computhink.

*In the event of any disruptions due to COVID-19, classes will be switched to Online mode using Zoom.

Dedicated Online Classes are conducted on Virtual Zoom Classrooms. Logon and account instructions will be emailed to you.

3. Free Coding Platform

Roblox Studio is free to install and use. This is where your child will have their own account, and where they will code their daily projects. Projects and accounts can be stored online and accessible forever.

4. Online Assessments

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

FAQs

Item1

Is there any pre-requisites to joining this class?

Although this is a class for beginners, it is preferable your child has some programming background (e.g. in Scratch or other platforms).

How many students are there in a class?

We maintain a small classroom size of maximum 6 students : 1 instructor for the best learning experience for your child.

Do I need to prepare anything for this camp?

Onsite Classes: Laptops will be provided for students attending our onsite classes. You may bring along a jacket and a water bottle for your child.

Online Classes:  Please make sure that your child has a working computer or laptop (Recommended system – CPU: Intel Core i3-3210 3.2 GHz / AMD A8-7600 APU 3.1 GHz or equivalent, RAM: 2GB), with a strong internet connection, and a working web camera.

  • For the best virtual learning experience, it is recommended to have a second monitor plugged into your main computer. i.e. you have 2 screens. One screen is for viewing the teacher’s screen, and another screen is for your child to do their code.
  • For younger students of the age 7 to 8, please have an adult within calling distance for the first 15-30 minutes of the class, as they may need help with how to operate a computer.
  • Join the online session 10-15 minutes earlier. We will usually have the zoom session up 15 minutes before the class starts.

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

Yes, students will attend the same time slot for each day of the camp.

Will there be any make up classes provided if my child miss a class?

We do not provide make up sessions, however, we do provide the class recordings and materials for any missed classes.

Do you provide a certificate upon completion of this course?

We provide every student with a certificate of completion at the end of the camp.

What is LUA good for?

Lua has been used in many industrial applications (e.g., Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom), with an emphasis on embedded systems (e.g., the Ginga middleware for digital TV in Brazil) and games (e.g., World of Warcraft and Angry Birds). Lua is currently the leading scripting language in games. Lua has a solid reference manual and there are several books about it. Several versions of Lua have been released and used in real applications since its creation in 1993. Lua featured in HOPL III, the Third ACM SIGPLAN History of Programming Languages Conference, in 2007. Lua won the Front Line Award 2011 from the Game Developers Magazine.
