Event description

Description

Start your journey with Python, a real-world syntax-based programming language &

Challenge your Talented Coder with more Advanced Real-World programs

Consistently ranked #1 as the “Most Popular Coding Language“, learning Python will enable your child to build programs that are used widely today in many domains; Eg. Web Development, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence.

In this program specifically designed based on the PSLE Mathematics curriculum, Mathematics will be used as the context through which students pick up Python programming skills. They will learn how to apply Mathematical Operators to calculate the area of a square or even develop a BMI Calculator (Who knew that +, -, x, ÷ could be so fun!). They will also make use of conditionals to create a Movie-Age checker. And what about ending off with developing their own personalisedBaymax“, complete with a health tracker and personalised health tips? The sky is the limit as Kids get their hands on these exercises, and much more in our Python Meets Math classes!

They will also make use of conditionals to create a Movie-Age checker. And what about finding the lowest common multiple of two numbers, with just a touch of the button? Kids get to learn these, and much more in our Python Meets Math classes!

This powerful synergistic pairing of Math and Programming has been tested in selected schools and proven to provide students a solid foundation in both.
