LCCL Coding Academy
At LCCL Coding Academy‘s Google-inspired campus, your child will engage in coding lessons that are mentally rigorous and full of fun. Led by teachers with backgrounds in computer science and engineering, learners don’t just code; they build essential computational thinking and problem-solving ability. Due to strong foundations in its curriculum, students have gone on to clinch 1st places at the National Robotics Competition coding challenge in both primary and secondary school categories, and 2nd place in the pre-school category. In the LCCL Core Curriculum, kids 5 – 7 years old start at Early Creators where they build useful learning attitudes whilst helping friendly cartoon friends solve logical challenges. Older students 8 – 11 take the progressive Coding Fundamentals curriculum to hone algorithmic thinking abilities whilst coding games, animations and apps, then graduate to Robotics. 12-year-olds and above journey on to Python Problem Solving, a curriculum so in-depth it is the last coding class the student will ever need, because with such a solid understanding the graduate will be able to self-learn other coding languages on their own. Graduates of the Python program go on to independently create web apps supervised by LCCL teachers in the Research & Development program, or embark in the study of data structures and algorithms, giving an early exposure to university computer science courses.
Coding for kids: Choose between physical classes or live online lessons. In both modes, students will be guided at their own optimal pace in a small learning group.
