Coding Camp Outline

The 4-day holiday camp is a specially curated camp for the Summer School 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 4 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. Block Coding Platform

Don’t have a Minecraft account? Not to worry! Minecraft accounts are provided (free) for your child’s use during the class.  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 during the class.
