The First Code Explorer program inspires technology savvy primary school students to go beyond mobile and computer gaming, and move to create their own games and apps. With the emphasis of creativity, First Code Explorer empowers students through problem solving using technology. Students learn computer science concepts, user-centric design, and mobile app development.
Explorer Program offers a vigorous, multi semester curriculum that is catered for students to dive into the world of computer science and software development.
To cultivate their curious minds, our instructors guide students through their personal projects towards end of each term. Through the process, students learn to make their own mobile apps from idea to reality.
Our curriculum emphasizes computer science concepts. Laying a solid foundation of such from a young age, students can apply computational thinking skills to solve problems in different facets of their lives.
"My son has really enjoyed his classes at FCA. He likes that he is learning very real, practical coding and STEM skills. I like that they take his progress and work so seriously, with weekly reports and parent conferences. He will definitely be continuing for the third year."
