This awesome coding school with multiple convenient locations across Singapore (including a new venue partner in Hougang) knows a thing or two about letting kids learn through play! You can choose from 5-day camps or 3-hour workshops, then sit back and watch as your kiddos transform into self-motivated learners who are curious, inventive and resourceful! Whether your child wants to become a Rockstar Code DJ, assemble their own laptop, programme their own robot dinosaur, or one of 15 other cool camps on offer over school holidays, there’s sure to be something to tickle their fancy. Camps are helpfully sorted by age group, too, with multiple offerings for 5-to-6-year-olds, 7-to-13-year-olds, and 10-to-16-year-olds. We also love that all learning styles are catered to, whether your kiddo (or you) prefer on-screen or hands-on.
