How micro:bit works

micro:bit is an educational and creative tool to encourage children to get actively involved in writing software in computers. With micro:bit, we strive to motivate the kids to progress from consumers of digital information to be designers and creators of technology with experience of fun digital making.

The kids will experience hands-on sessions on how micro:bit can be used for all sorts of cool creations.

 

Requirement:

No coding or technical experience needed

Temperature detector

Kids will learn and explore how to create a temperature detector using the micro:bit inventor kit. The temperature detector is able to monitor the room’s temperature and is able to activate automatically, displaying a happy or sad face based on a pre-defined temperature setting. Kids will also get to experience turning micro:bit into a simple circuit along with crafting a visual notification with LEDs, powering and controlling a motor-controlled fan and activating a speaker for sound effects.

 

What do your kids learn?

  • Explore the digital making process; and at the same time, be introduced to the world of electronics.
  • They will learn to solve a problem put up to them; which will involve decision-making process via coding.
  • Kids will realize and understand the usage of micro:bit with its expanded capabilities to do different projects. They are encouraged to think creatively upon this realization.

How do we at KidsCode impart our knowledge to your child?

  • We guide your child through step-by-step exercises to create the temperature detector project
  • After which we get them to rebuild this project or do a slight variation of it
  • We then leave them to build a simple new project from scratch
  • We get them to work on this new project without any guidance
  • We repeat the process to instill confidence and familiarity

This recursive training method helps to instill the basics of coder and maker, the sense of adventure and the confidence to explore new ways to code or explore other purposes for micro:bit even after the course has been completed!

Key Takeaways

  • Exposure to what is the most talked about micro controller –  micro:bit
  • Learn how a micro:bit unit works
  • Learn simple block programming skills
  • Understand what is the term “Internet of Things (IoT)”
  • Most importantly gain a level of understanding that allows you to go on to create almost anything

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.
