Coding as a lifelong skill
Coding is proven to be much more than a technical skill; it is the new and essential literacy in the 21st century to interact and express oneself in the digital worlds. The type of thinking required or developed through coding practices includes organization, problem solving, designing, storytelling, mathematical and critical reasoning, and more. While RoboCode leads an interesting and fun way to learn coding, students are acquiring crucial skills of their lives.
Best Preparation for the Future
With the mindset developed, toolset experienced and skill-set acquired through learning to code, RoboCode Developers shall have their computational thinking skills strengthen and organizational skills and creativity fostered. This builds a strong foundation for their future STEM education and empowers them to be an independent, confident and resourceful problem-solver.
Changing the World
We believe that leadership is an opportunity to serve. When our RoboCode Developers have been equipped with the technical knowledge of coding, our tutors aim at inspiring them in identifying real-world issues in the community and daily lives which can be addressed and improved by creating targeted mobile apps, websites or applications. Our young Developers are required to present their end-products in front of the class and welcome feedback from users for continuous refinement of their work. This is the essence of leadership.
“I like RoboCode Academy! I learned a lot about programming in RoboCode Academy. Coding is very funny!”

Level 1 - Minecraft Modding
“Modding is just another word for modify”. Have you ever played Monopoly and changed the rules a little, to speed up the game? Then you already have experience in modding! Minecraft is not the first video game to be “moddable”, but, until recently, modding was only truly accessible to professional computer programmers who have the skills to write complex code.
Level 2 - AppInventor
MIT AppInventor is an intuitive, visual programming environment that allows everyone – even children – to build fully functional apps for smartphones and tablets. The blocks-based tool facilitates the creation of complex, high-impact apps in significantly less time than traditional programming environments.
Level 3 - Web Programming
Special: 3D Printing
A basic introduction to 3D modeling and printing. You can create your own 3D object with your imagination, and will bring your self-designed 3D printed object home.
