Here are some of the most common questions, along with the complete answers from our support experts.
Coding, or programming, is simply the learning of computer language. In order to control computers (or robots or drones), we need to give instructions in a language that they understand – that language is programming language, and the act using that language is coding. We live in an increasingly digital world, and to understand how to code is to understand how this digital world works. Just as we learn science to understand how our nature works, our children must learn coding to understand how technology around us works.
It is never too young to start to learn how to code. Our coding lessons are designed to be accessible and fun to children as young as 4 to 18 years old. While our lessons may be simplified for your child, we ensure that we teach accurate Computer Science concepts (that’re taught in university levels). It is like learning mathematics at primary school levels, vs university levels.
We teach several programming language to your child, depending on his/her age and experience. For beginner we use visual programming language, and will eventually proceed to learn text-based programming language. Either way, our lessons are designed to be fun and accessible to everyone.
Learning to code helps to develop many important skills that can help a child succeed in school and life beyond. Some of these skills are problem solving skills, critical & logical thinking, creativity, and computational thinking skills. Children also uses mathematics and scientific skills to solve programming problems. In addition to that, we encourage collaboration in our classes, thus helping a child develop his confidence and social skills.
Our innovative curriculum guarantees that most of our students will be able to develop a simple software in just about 1 month of lessons. What kind of software depends on your child’s interest and passions. He/she could build games, animations, mobile apps, and any kind of software.
Our students’ age ranges from 4 to 16 years old.
Manufacturing, Banking, Medical, Transportation, Telecomunication, IT… in fact any industry that uses technology (which is almost all) will benefits from the knowledge of Coding. You do not need to be a computer scientist or programmer to learn coding, just as you do not need to be a scientist to learn science.
Robotics is actually an application of Coding. In order to control a robot, one would need to program it. Learning coding may enable your child to program or control a robot, computer, and even drone.
This depends on the age of the child and if the child has prior knowledge on computer programming. Call to talk with our counselor to find out which course is most appropriate for your child.
Because technology and software controls everything we do in this digital age, demand for those who will create this technology has skyrocketed and this has made coding the number one in-demand skill for everyone in the 21st century.
Coding teaches creativity, logical reasoning, critical thinking and most importantly helps us to solve problems by creating software that makes life easier for people.
Our programmes include intermediate and advanced courses for returning students. Our curriculum roadmap shows you the path your child can take to continue on their coding and innovation journey.
