How fast can you solve the maze?

http://www.codinglab.com.sg/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/IMG_3670-1024×768.jpg

Yesterday, more than 1000 kids from Woodlands Ring Primary learnt about line-following sensors and how Robots make use of them to find their way out of the maze!

Some comments of joy:

“What? You mean Robots have brains too??”

  • Yes! We program the algorithm to tell the robot what to do when it encounters different scenarios on its sensors.

“Go Right! No Go Left!! No no there! YAY!!!”

  • The excitement of seeing the robot finish the maze and playing the Victory Music was indescribable.

Kids were treated to a hands-on opportunity to control and touch the robots, getting a good sense of where the sensors were located, how the robot was built, and how the algorithm was programmed. How fun it is for us to be bringing STEM concepts to schools in this way!

Xoxo,

Coding Lab Team

Parent-Child Workshop Series: #1

http://www.codinglab.com.sg/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/IMG_3216-1024×768.jpg

We are so excited to have concluded our very First Parent-Child Workshop on Sunday!

For 120 mins, both parent and child had fun, poring over computing puzzles and learning how to create a game from Scratch. Such wonderful bonding moments for the family, and everybody got to learn something new.

New! Coding with Pororo (Ages 4-6) @ Pororo Park, Marina Square

https://s27.postimg.org/4zjuj769v/IMG_0373.jpg

Dear Parents,

We did a Holiday Coding with Pororo program last November 2016, and were heartened by the overwhelming response from both parents and kids. We are pleased to announce that the Coding with Pororo programme is back, this time, not as a one-time session, but with five full sessions, where kids will get to create a proper digital Pororo story and get the chance to meet Pororo himself!

Kids will start off learning the attributes of the commands by having an activity session, using giant commands to direct each other and learn about mathematics (counting), while learning coding sequences and loops in the process. Exclusively at Pororo Park, make your favourite characters spin, twirl, hop or jump, or even do all 4 at once! Add your own music, backgrounds, and voila! your child’s very own Pororo story is formed.

Day 1: Introduction to Scratch Junior
Exploring and familiarising with the Scratch interface
*Special Guest appearance by Pororo!

Day 2: Basic Computational Techniques
Choosing characters and backgrounds
Animating Characters with basic Motion blocks

Day 3: Control your Characters
Adding Speed and learning the concept of loops
Counting using the grid

Day 4: Animation
Adding Speech and sound
Interaction between the sprites (Start on Bump, etc)

Day 5: Project showcase
Work on your game concept
Use the techniques you have learnt over the past 4 days
Show and tell
*Guess What, Pororo himself may be coming down to watch the performance!

Venue: Pororo Park Singapore
Dates: 10 Feb – 10 March (Every Friday, 4-6pm) OR 11 Feb – 11 March (Every Saturday, 9-11am)
