The Wonders of Wikipedia

We systematically breakdown how Wikipedia was created with some of the HTML elements and CSS styling, showing kids the potential of the things we are currently learning. We also have a discussion about how we can design and create our very own wiki pages for kids to share their knowledge and big ideas with the world.

Margins & Padding with DevTools

Kids are guided on how they can use Developer Tools on their browser to inspect elements on webpages, and find out how CSS margins and padding work by watching them in action!

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

"N is enjoying the classes and looks forward to them every week. She especially enjoys learning CSS. She thinks her instructor should get a teacher award.

"My son had so much fun."

"My daughter learnt many things she had not imagined were possible to grasp at her age. In particular, before the class, she couldn’t make sense of the code she would see for a webpage, but now she understands what’s going on. She realizes the amount of work and thought that goes into making successful websites."
