Suitable for 13 to 18 year olds (Must have completed Grade 6/Primary 6 and Principles 1)
This course introduces computer programming as the craft of problem-solving through
writing sets of instructions for a computer to run – what are known as
programs. Code Campers are taught how to read and write these programs in the
massively popular and widely adopted Python programming language. Lessons
primarily focus on having students familiarise themselves with the most
primitive types of instructions that can be understood by every computer and
understand how these can be composed to build up virtually any computer
(1) creating and accessing variables for storing and manipulating data.
(2) making simple decisions with conditionals like the if statement.
(3) repeating instructions through loops like the while statement.
We facilitate student learning through a fun and visual environment: concepts are
elucidated through puzzle-solving in Minecraft – one of the most iconic,
beloved and dare we say, educational (so declares the New York Times) video
games of our time. After this course, students will walk away with the ability
to read, analyse and construct simple programs. They will also gain an
appreciation for how programming is applied to solve problems in fields as
diverse as mobile, web development, artificial intelligence, robotics,
financial engineering and bioinformatics.
This is a 5-lesson coding camp. Lessons will be conducted at our Bukit Timah Campus
(#03-01B King's Arcade) and Marine Parade Campus (#03-04 Parkway Centre)
