The school holidays are here and the kids are looking for something constructive to occupy their time. Rather than letting Nathan watch TV all day, I sent him for a Coding Class for Kids. Organized by “Today got Class”, in partnership with Make and Kids Code, this class aims to expose kids to the world of IT programming.
Like many parents who do not work in the IT industry, I have practically no knowledge about Coding. However, with technology moving so fast, I believe that knowledge about Coding will definitely be good exposure for the kids. At this 3 day non-residential camp, the kids learnt about coding and IT in a fun relaxed environment. With an easy drop-off and pick-up schedule for parents, the coding camp sounds like a winning combination for all parents.
Here is a brief run-down of the Coding Class for Kids
All boys love cars and on Day 1, they learnt how to make a cardboard car with hybridpropulsion! Although Nathan had difficulty using a bench drill, but with the close supervision of the teachers, he used hot glue guns to create a rubberband and balloon powered car.
Through practical application, kids also learnt about drag and resistance. With the balloon powered cars, they realized that big balloons increased drag and resistance. Some also
experimented with wheel add-ons to increased friction and grip.
