Scratch Coding (Grade 1 to Grade 7): From School Dismissal to 4 PM

Coding sessions: Prepare your kid to take advantage of the digital age – Not just a consumer of it! This coding sessions are a strictly play-based approach to introducing coding to young students using a variety of fun themes. By the end of this coding session, students will have gained knowledge in writing long structured code sets in block-based programming (Scratch), and have enhanced their problem-solving skills and creativity. 

  • Introduces coding concepts through interactive, fun learning.
  • Teaches basic coding skills, such as sequencing, loops, and conditionals.
  • Encourages creativity and problem-solving.

This term 1 sessions (Oct to Dec 2023) build a foundation of coding and problem-solving skills. In Term 2 (Jan 2024 onward) students age 9 to 13 has the option to transition to L1 coding in the evening batch (or continue this batch). Evening batch (starting 5/6 pm) will be advanced coding session for students of that age. Students age 6 to 8 continue learning in this.

 

L0 Digital Arts (Grade 1 to Grade 4): From 4 to 4:45 PM

L0 Digital Arts: The purpose of digital arts is to identify students with creative and imaginative abilities and lead them to a path of using digital tools to express their imagination. In these sessions, we introduce a new digital application every other class and does a project with it. We introduce students to a wide range of Artificial Intelligence based tools (Yes! – AI digital arts tools for elementary kids). This is NOT an arts session – but more of a “digital arts tool” session. It helps kids with drawing/painting abilities a lot but everyone can be a drawer/painter or artist with these tools. This is for students age 6 to 9 only.

For example, students will perform tasks like:

  • Creating an animation of a blooming flower
  • Making digital greeting cards
  • Making wall art that can be used to decorate their rooms
  • Creating music digitally
  • Designing flyers and posters
  • And more!

All the students need is imagination to create arts – we are there to help bring this image into reality.

The students can easily and quickly take their arts creation to the next level, and share their creations to the whole world digitally!

Our L0 Coding & Digital Arts course is a good mix of fun coding themes, digital arts themes, and of course sustainability development themes throughout the year.

Kids can choose to do Level 0 more than once and it will remain engaging because we are always using new robotic kits. Also as kids become more comfortable and take a deeper dive into our L0 kits, they can gain an overall better understanding of the robots, and transition into Level 1 better. Note: All other levels (L1/L2) are done only once.

General Notes:

Pre-Requisites for Level 0 classes: Kids should be able to take instruction and be able to read basic English words and sentences before attending the class. No other pre-requisites.

  • There will be non-screen (i.e.; no laptops/tabs etc. to rest their eyes) breaks in during the program and students play games like Jenga & Uno to manage long stay. Please pack some extra snacks if they are staying from school dismissal to 4:45 pm.
  • Parents can see lot of pictures and videos of student’s classes in our Facebook group (invitation only for parents) to see progression and so parents can ask better questions to their kids.
