Master Computational Thinking Together!

Time: Saturday, 8 September: 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm or 5pm

Duration: 30 minutes (recommended for children between the ages of 5 and 8)

The 30-minute workshop aims to introduce one of four Computational Thinking (“CT”) cornerstones, Algorithmic Thinking (“AT”), to participants between the ages of 5 and 8 years old. This workshop will teach children methods to think algorithmically, as they learn to navigate a digital puzzle using a tablet. Algorithms are often used as a starting point for creating a computer programme. Participants will input their instructions into the puzzle sequentially, commanding the digital avatar to collect the resources on the path given.

All registered participants, please check-in at the Workshops Registration counter 30 minutes before the start of activity. Slots will be given to the next participant on the waiting list 25 minutes before the session starts.
