Join us for a year-long learning journey in our Coding Club with focus on:

  • Purpose driven learning
  • Focus on foundational to deep development
  • Project based learning
  • Progressive growth with exposure to variety of tools

The Coding Club is designed to provide students with an opportunity to explore the field of coding and develop their coding skills in a supportive and collaborative environment. Through a series of interactive and engaging activities, students will learn how to code using different programming languages and tools, and how to apply coding skills to real-world problems.

MONTHLY THEMES (2024/2025):

Our STEM-based coding club offers an engaging and comprehensive program designed to introduce students to a variety of programming languages and concepts throughout the year.

  • In September, we start with Scratch, a visual programming language perfect for beginners. Students will learn the basics of coding by creating simple animations and games.
  • October focuses on Makecode Arcade, where students will delve into game development, learning to design and build their own arcade-style games using a block-based coding platform.
  • In November, we transition to Python, a powerful text-based programming language. Students will explore fundamental coding skills, including syntax, data structures, and basic algorithms, through interactive projects.
  • During December and January, we introduce C++, emphasizing object-oriented programming and memory management. Students will develop console applications and learn essential debugging techniques.
  • February brings Processing, a flexible software sketchbook and a language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts. Students will create visual and interactive programs.
  • In March, we explore Java, focusing on its wide applications in web and app development. Students will understand object-oriented concepts and build simple applications.
  • In April, we revisit Makecode Arcade, allowing students to refine their game development skills with more advanced projects.
  • May brings a deeper dive into Python, where students will work on more complex projects and enhance their coding proficiency.
  • Finally, in June, we return to Processing, enabling students to create more sophisticated visual programs, consolidating their learning and creativity.

All students enrolled in the programs will be provided access to our online learning platform STEAM Hub:

Full Year Enrolment students will get access to all the following courses.
