If your teenager has a penchant for all things technology, why not let him try his hand at coding? With today’s world placing great importance on programming and related fields, we’re certain such skills will come in handy soon!
Cue Early Coders Academy, a coding school known for teaching through their own registered learning software, CodeLab App, which enables students to learn more efficiently. Not only are the teachers able to deliver lesson content through the web, they can also keep track of each student’s progress by reviewing his or her code from the central workstation.
Previously known as Coding Labs, Early Coders fulfills its mission to make learning coding fun by engaging students in experiential learning. Each class leads up to a finished product at the end of a course, which not only gives students a sense of accomplishment, but also encourages them to understand how the different aspects of coding work together.
Your child will learn from experienced experts themselves, including three-time hackathon winner and Head Instructor Yu Jian Kong, who has won multiple coding competitions like the ST Electronics Security Apps Challenge and Hackathon Asia Singapore 2014.
While practical skills may be important, theory must not be left out either. Early Coders believes in helping students understand the logic behind each coding syntax, as this will making them more versatile and adapt better to other coding languages in the future.
