Smart Coders Y4-Y7 coding class - More Info
Here at RUNSTEM you can find something amazing for your child.
Kids learn the basics of programming patterns and computational thinking. They create interactive animations and games. Scratch is designed at MIT by a group of talented researchers to match young children’s cognitive, personal, social, and emotional development.
Kids can snap together colourful programming blocks to make their favourite characters move, jump, dance, and sing. In the process, they learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively. Children learn the basic concepts of programming, structural thinking, object manipulation.
Children also work with paint editor, recording of their voices and sounds, insert photos. They can share their creations with online scratch community, they learn how to communicate with the community members and ask questions.
Children start exploring the world and model interactions of objects. They start thinking like innovators not consumers of technology. Kids learn how they can apply technology and think of it more as a tool that helps to create their stories. As RUNSTEM is about empowering students to become problem-solvers and creators in the digital world.
Children learn concentration, following instructions, reason systematically – the essential skills for life in the 21st century.
