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.

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)

Training at Jurong Regional Library – Nursery Rhymes and Coding

http://www.codinglab.com.sg/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/IMG_3177-2-1024×683.jpg

The team from Coding Lab had lots of fun today, training staff from the National Library to code using stories!

Kudos to the fantastic and sporting participation from all participants. From play-acting, to coding, to voice-acting, everybody had a great time learning to code by re-enacting our childhood favourite – Five Little Monkeys!

View our pictures in action below.
