Programs are categorised into theme and curriculum-based workshops.
Theme-based programs to appeal to subject matter of interest. Learners will learn programming concepts and skills through projects and create their own unique works.
In Art, learners create animations, interactive art, and other aesthetical works of art. Through Art, learns learn to express themselves through computer arts.
In Storytelling, learns use basic coding to make fun and interactive stories. Storytelling encourages learners to tell stories for expression and to inspire creativity.
- Music & Sound
In Music & Sound, learners use the computer to play musical notes, create a music video, and design sounds for projects. While creating and remixing musical projects, learners learn concepts of programming.
In Game Design, students are stilled with basic video game coding concepts by making different types of games. Students make creative decisions to remix existing codes and come up with new games.
Students conceptualise and create animated projects.
In Robotics, students learn how to control and program robots for motion, speech, light, and interactions.
Curriculum-based learning correlate with subjects that are learnt in classrooms and institutions to complement education in schools.
There are several tools that are available to integrate into the Math curriculum. The stage area is an XY grid, which can be used to teach coordinates. Learners are exposed to geometric shapes and their properties. Quizzes related to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
- Language Arts
Students learn digital storytelling by combining images, text, and backgrounds. Projects related to creative writing, other language arts projects can be weaved in. Tutorials and assessments can be generated and improve writing over grammar, punctuation, etc.
- Science and social studies
Knowledge of science and social studies can be demonstrated in projects through simulations of real world by compositing sounds, text and images into animations.
- Music & Visual Arts
There are sounds ready for use and learns can record their own sounds to be used in their projects. Also, change size, colour, and effects can be changed in accordance to their ideas. They can also import their own photographs and images.
