Young Explorers

$0.00

Our young explorers get to understand, appreciate, and interact with computers around them. They program robots and understand how to talk to computers (code), in age-appropriate computer languages like Blockly or ScratchJr. They explore basic computer science concepts like algorithms, sequencing, & debugging, while also honing their general literacy, logical reasoning, and spatial awareness skills. Their imagination is further triggered, as they link traditional & digital art expressions to create their own characters, backdrops, and stories in Scratch Jr. This fun-based program is activity based and completely hands-on.

FAQs

What is the journey a Create Lab student embarks upon?

The focus of our programmes is to empower 21st Century Skills: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication & Collaboration. Initially, we used Scratch as a platform to enable this. Subsequently, we also use tools and languages like MIT’s App Inventor, HTML 5, Python, etc. to enable students to create more sophisticated technology expressions, like apps, advanced games, websites, etc.

What are online classes? Why are they needed?

Online classes are fully interactive classes done through live video conferencing between the instructor and student. The instructor can see the student’s screen and provide feedback in real-time. The platform enables online quizzes too. Online classes complement our popular centre-based classes and are gaining interest in the current environment, where social distancing is preferred.

Who develops your programmes?

All our programmes are developed together with academics from Oxford, MIT & Singapore’s top universities. Our Academic Board has over 85 years of pioneering technology experience, has given TED talks and holds patents in areas such as artificial intelligence.
