Can you Spot Fact or Fake

Students should have already learnt how to design and program simple mobile apps on MIT App Inventor 2 (AI2).

Our App Inventor will explore deeper into MIT AI2 Components and use Computational Thinking to create prototypes of useful mobile apps that can be used to improve a user’s everyday life. They will learn higher level programming concepts such as conditionals, variables and procedures that can be used to program their mobile apps.

Our App Inventor will learn how to apply design principles to improve how the user interacts with (UI Design) and the overall experience a user has (UX design) with a mobile app. They will apply design principles to create a storyboard for their mobile app with the consideration of the user.

Why Us?

Best Trainer-Student Ratio in SINGAPORE

1 Trainer to a max of 8 students for every class to ensure maximum attention is given to each student. As experienced educators, we know that lesson time shouldn’t be spent on waiting too long for a teacher to give one-on-one attention in a huge class.

Your Child’s Security is our UTMOST PRIORITY

CCTVs installed  in all classrooms and along the corridors to ensure your child’s safety.

Proper precautions will be taken for your child and we ensure that pick-up and drop-off is only performed by a registered guardian

Toilets just outside our premises which ensures your child will never be out of sight for more than 2 minutes.

All Equipment Provided

Don’t burden your kids with additional loads. There’s no need for any notebooks or tablets. All your child needs to bring is his/her inquisitive mind and a yearn to learn.

Central Location – Orchard Road

Well-connected by public transport, getting to us is never going to be an issue.  From Ion Orchard to Plaza Singapura…Parents can relax and shop…  while your kids are well taken care of @ KIDSCODE.

Value for Money Learning and Training

Contrary to what people think, enrichment for kids doesn’t have to cost a bomb. Our courses are priced not more than the hourly market rate. (PS: check out the price at other providers and divide out over the duration in hours)

NO HIDDEN charges, only PLEASANT surprises.

Maximum of 2 days for Courses during the HOLIDAY PERIOD

Our holiday courses are conducted for 1 or 2 day durations for 2 reasons.

First, this saves travelling time for both parents and children; Not to mention cost. Why spend ERP, carpark and petrol charges over 4-5 days? The math just ain’t right…

Second, spreading the course over too many days will dilute the effectiveness of the lesson and reduces retention. Time is wasted in every lesson when there is a need to recapitulate the previous lesson.
