Code with your Kid!
The ‘Code with your Kid’ workshop is a ground-breaking initiative that aims to offer a unique platform for kids to bond with their parents through an interactive and engaging experience revolving coding.
The inaugural workshop was conducted in collaboration with Republic Polytechnic Indian Cultural Group and Sembawang IAEC on 16th March 2019. The huge success of the workshop created much awareness and interest amongst the public. Many parents came forward and requested for more such workshops.
With the support of Holy Tree Sri Balasubramaniar Temple, regular workshops are now being conducted in their premises.
The workshops was also launched in partnership with CDAC Woodlands. We are now in the process of rolling it out to all CDAC centers across Singapore.
We invite parents to come forward and bring their kids for an enriching experience.
