If you’re an engineer by training (like a large proportion of men in Singapore), you’d have wondered if it’s possible to teach your kids software programming. Not just because it’s a great skill to have when they’re grown up, but because it’s, well… fun!
If you’re not an engineer by training, well… widen your horizons!
Yes, it is possible to teach your kids how to code. Scratch is a programming language for young people developed by the MIT Media Lab. It also happens to be considered sufficiently sophisticated to be used during the first 2 weeks of the Computer Science course at Harvard.
And yes, there is a school in Singapore that teaches Scratch. Saturday Kids conducts courses for children aged 5 and up. The school organises joint classes with adults too. Find out more at http://saturdaykids.sg.
