CODING CAMP

CODING CAMP FOR CURIOUS KIDS

We’re proud to partner with Saturday Kids on our NEW coding camp!

With Saturday Kids, students don’t just learn to code. They code to learn. We cannot teach kids everything there is to know. But what we can do is bring out their curiosity, encourage them to look at problems and think “I can figure this out myself”.

 

Our 1-week coding camp is:

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer.

 

Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring out what went wrong and trying again. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

CURIOUS CUBS

(5 - 7YO)

Never thought your little ones could code? Campers will explore a series of 4 immersive experiences geared at inspiring & engaging kids about tech.

Monday: Pixels

Kids will work with their hands to understand how pixels work and will make their own cute pixel art keychains to take home.

Tuesday: Circuits

Campers will have fun building small toys of their own with some squishy dough and simple electric circuitry. 

Wednesday: Coding

Kids will create, code and then play their own mini computer game using Scratch. 

Thursday: Robotics

Campers will build and programme their very own robot. 

Friday: Presentation Day!

Parents, join us on Friday as the kids present their new-found skills and learnings to you. Yey!

START WITH SCRATCH

(7 - 10YO)

Suitable for kids with no coding experience.

Scratchers Assemble!

Scratch is a visual programming language created specifically for kids. Kids learn to code through a simple drag-and-drop visual interface, lowering the learning barrier for kids who aren’t yet proficient in using a keyboard.

So basically, Scratch is all the fun of coding with none of the hassle of typing!

With a foundational understanding of Scratch, kids can create their own games, animations, stories, quizzes and more…

With coding superpowers, only their imagination is the limit!

MARVELLOUS MACHINES

(7 - 10YO)

Marvellous Machines is a solid introduction into the world of engineering, hardware & robotics. 

 

Kids will create and programme their own robotic creations. They'll learn about engineering by creating 3D shapes and even complicated structures like bridges and towers. Moving on, they'll understand the engineering concepts that make a bridge structurally stable and how everyday mechanisms work. Finally, we'll combine that engineering knowledge to create our own robots!

 

Kids will learn creative confidence, presentation skills and self-directed learning.

The class that my child is interested in has already started. Can my child still join?

: It depends on the course and the number of lessons missed. Please drop us an email at events@hollandseclub.org.sg and we’ll see what we can do!

Do you teach kids with learning disabilities/special needs?

: We strive to provide an inclusive environment for kids of all abilities, and we have had kids with special needs attend our classes in the past. However, not all courses are suitable, and we strongly encourage parents to drop us an email at events@hollandseclub.org.sg to provide us with a brief background in order for us to make the necessary recommendations based on the child’s learning needs.

Does my child need to have any prior coding experience?

: Our curriculum features courses that cater to both beginner and advanced students, so all kids are welcomed!

My child is below the minimum age required as stated on your website. Can we still sign up?

: The age group listed on our site is a guideline, not a strict requirement. Some exceptions can be made based on the child’s coding experience, and if you’ll like to be sure, please email us at events@hollandseclub.org.sg before you sign up so that we can double check.
