We’re living in a digital age where Internet, mobile phones and tablets are a natural part of our kids’ lives. Where even LEGOs have moved into the computer with Minecraft. In addition to reading, writing and arithmetic, today’s kids need to learn how to create digital programs and arts, not just consume them. Understanding how computers and programs work is the new extension to literacy – Don’t let your kids be left behind.
At MakersBuilders, we aim to ensure every child learns coding, electronics, robotics, music and digital art production, etc. in a fun, engaging and relevant way. Not in a decade from now, but NOW! Computational thinking and digital literacy are becoming as fundamental as reading and writing to our children’s success, regardless of what occupation they ultimately choose.

Adventures in Programming (ages 7-11):
We want our student to have an exciting and engaging experience while learning computer science principles. We use popular visual programming tools like Tynker™ and Scratch from MIT Media Labs to engage and teach students programming concepts. Our classes are best suited for students aged between 7-10. However, we offer beginner, intermediate and advance levels with differentiated learning. Each student can progress at the their own pace.
Schedule: Every Saturday, 10 AM – 11 AM (Beginner) and 11:15 AM -12:15 PM (Intermediate) starting from 19 Sept 2015 until 12 Dec 2015
Learn Python and Electronics With Minecraft (ages 11-15):
Learn Python Coding from the ground up (literally!) by using one of the most popular gaming platforms on the planet: Minecraft. Children and teens learn how to write code that interacts with the Minecraft game, building huge structures and adding their own intelligence by creating mini games within the Minecraft world. But be assured, the focus of this course is learning Python programming, using Minecraft as an engaging environment and tool only.
Students will also get their hands dirty with electronics, building their own game controller, using breadboards, buttons, flashing LEDs and a custom mini Arduino. This course is based on the new book Adventures in Minecraft, co-written by one of our most experienced Lead Teachers, David Whale.
Schedule: Every Saturday, 12:30 PM – 2 PM starting from 19 Sept 2015 until 12 Dec 2015
Intro: Android Mobile App Development (ages 12+):
Project Based Learning – Developing a Coffee Ordering App
Smart phones and tablets are portable powerful computers inside. Android is the premier open source operating system behind a growing number of these devices. Learn the basics of Android and Java programming, and take the first step on your journey to becoming an Android developer. Students will use Android Studio to build their apps, so they should have access to a computer that can run Android Studio.
The classes will present basic information about Android and provide the resources that will get you started creating your own apps. While students do not need prior coding experience, some basic programming knowledge of concepts such as what is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), private and public functions is highly recommended. Students will learn about Activities and Intents, UserInterface Layouts and Controls.
Schedule: Every Saturday, 2 PM – 5 PM (3 hours for 4 weeks only) starting from 19 Sept 2015 until 10 Oct 2015
