Bridge the digital divide in our society
Computer Science First
We provide the first Computer Science learning experience for students at age 9 - 14 with zero to minimum background in computer programming. Students joining the clubs will attend a series of 8 workshops hosted by our Computer Science undergraduate students. Here are our intended learning outcomes in the clubs:
- Learn basic Scratch programming: Students will learn basic Scratch programming and create fun and interactive stories based on Google CS First teaching and learning materials.
- Learn to program a robot: To extend the programming concepts we learnt from Scratch to controlling Arduino-based robots.
- Collaborate in a team: Students will be assigned a learning buddy in the club. Collaborative learning allows students to work together toward a common goal, fostering teamwork and communication skills.
- Learn more about Computer Science with our gurus: Our Computer Science undergraduate students are kind, caring, supportive and knowledgeable. They will provide assistance and guidance through the learning process.
Students who attended 7 or more workshops and accomplish the tasks will receive a Certificate of Completion.
We offer three clubs in this pilot round. More clubs on advanced topics will be offered after this round of pilot clubs.
