Coding and Robotics helps kids develop logical thinking and problem-solving skills irrespective of their age group. Most of our students start at the age of 5 for basic coding i.e. CS First Scratch and Lego based robotics program. As the students advance from primary school, middle and high school, they progressively develop their logical and computational thinking. In fact, it’s best to introduce coding and robotics at an early age as they learn this new skill naturally like they learn a new language.

Coding and Robotics are intertwined program. Robots follow instructions by way of coding into it. Coding itself has so many other uses in many disciplines and and ranges of operations in different mechatronics functions. We think it’s almost like mathematics that has intrinsic use in many things like physics, chemistry or astronomy, coding similarly is used in almost all functions of computing.

 

 

At the age of 5 or 10 or 15, we think it’s too early to focus on specialisation so what we think is you can follow the interest of your child to start with. Please ask him questions like the following and find some clues (These are just some thoughts for having a chat with the child. Please don’t misunderstand them as a qualified advice)

 

Would you be interested in A. play-like activities in computer or B. perhaps like to join different parts of a robot/car? A suggests coding & B suggests Robotics.

  •  
  • In Scratch program, you will make some character, you might code them with colour and sound. Would you like to do that? Or Perhaps you would like to know about thermal sensor, motor and other parts of robots and how they work together?Both programs will certainly help the child understand coding and robotics as separate subjects and be beneficial in terms of comparing them and develop interest in both subjects. So, there is no one size fits all suggestion. If you think you will have resources and available time, we would recommend doing both programs. If not, one program is fine to start with.

Please check our website to obtain program objective, outcome and structure for each program. This will answer to any specific questions you might have about anything in particular program or lesson. CodingPro Education provides well-structured and well-planned lesson for all of our programs.

During each class/ day, the students learn the concepts of block-based coding. Post each class, we give them assignments/optional homework to ensure they understand concepts taught and we work with the students closely to finish assignments providing assistance through our E-learning platform. Post completing one track (say for ex. Scratch), we also would encourage students to complete a “project” that covers all the concepts learnt and demo the project. This could be either individual or team-based projects (to encourage teamwork).

60 minutes / class unless advised otherwise.

Yes, but optional. Our classes are designed to provide all the skills within the classroom by way of trialling things that they learn. However, there are homework for kids like to do if they wanted.

Each week Instructor will upload materials that will be taught in the next class. Homework/project/group project will be uploaded in E-learning for the students to complete as their homework and upload them back in the google classroom for Instructor to review or provide feedback.

None. Instructor starts all of our programs from zero. So, there is no need for coding or robotics knowledge prior to commencement of our classes. Basic computer knowledge i.e. typing and accessing google classroom will be useful.

We recommend students enroll for one full calendar Term to benefit from the curriculum. However, we understand the student’s schedule change and they may need to take a break. In that case, the students can re-join at a later point in time and they will be assessed to enroll them in the appropriate track.

Not more than 10 students per Instructor to provide personalized learning experience.

Please register by going to our website. We don’t provide any trial class. We provide you with all relevant information and answer to any questions you have prior to enrolling your child in our program.

We do not accept any form of payment by Cash & Cheque. EFT & Bank Transfer are the most popular ways we receive our payments.

The full payment for the Term or full-day workshop is due before commencing the program with us. We do not provide refund unless there’s a compelling circumstance or we are unable to offer the program to the child for any unforeseen circumstances.

Not required. We provide tools and equipment for students to learn and experience. Students build robotics project and sometimes are allowed to take home however they are required to bring it back in the next class. In Introduction to Robotics classes, students do not need to buy their own kits. We work on conceptual understanding as well as building the robot.
