During the #SchoolHoliday last week, @StudyRoomSG conducted a series of enrichment courses. Here's one of the popular ones:
Basic Coding with #Scratch (age: 10-14)
Scratch was developed at the MIT Media Lab, and used by many educators to introduce kids to coding. Coding imparts reasoning, logic and problem solving skills, which will help in their maths and science.
The class was conducted by one of our founders Wallace, who has a degree in Computing from #ImperialCollege London and has been an avid programmer (studyroom.sg website was entirely coded himself). In the process of creating the game, our students got to know more about x-y coordinates, conditionals, events, sequences and loops. They also learned how to #animate objects and appreciate the intricacies of good game design.
There will be more interesting courses during the June school holiday. Meantime, do check out our FB page and website:
