The EXPLORE Series provides schools with semester-long programming courses for students of all ages.
Younger students are taught block-based languages such as Scratch and Hopscotch; older students learn more advanced content using Python and MIT App Inventor. Each course is led by one or more of our trained instructors.
Continuity is important for early-stage learners; our courses run in semesters, not weeks. By providing a structured curriculum that progresses incrementally, we maximise student understanding and avoid cognitive overload.
Our courses are not “one size fits all”, as we understand the diverse needs of schools. We communicate closely with each client to deliver a fully customised curriculum. We are also happy to discuss integrations with other academic subjects.
Our mission is not to produce an army of computer scientists. Our lessons teach programming with a focus on algorithmic thinking and problem-solving. We want students to become holistic individuals; the skills they gain are transferable to any field of study they may later pursue.
We conduct our courses using different platforms, depending on the age group and specific learning objectives.
A minimalistic, intuitive interface for iPad that allows students to start programming from an early age.
A full-featured block-based online platform for making games and interactive presentations.
A visual programming language for creating Android applications. Prototype and test with real devices on the fly.
