Why learn coding

Importance

Artificial Intelligence is a rising force in the modern world, allowing computers to learn from experience and perform human-like tasks. This technology allows computers to accomplish specific tasks much more efficiently than people can by analyzing large amounts of data and their patterns.

Added Value

Students will learn computer programming, artificial intelligence and their applications through fun STEM projects. This experience is further enhanced by trained student instructors from the same community. Through our courses, students can learn important skills as well as have fun.

Curriculum conception

The students will start from visual programming language Scratch and gradually progress to the text-based Python. The transition from in-browser environments to desktop computing, to the more physical Raspberry Pi robotic controller, and ultimately to the more powerful AI cloud will take place smoothly, as the students gain problem solving skills and confidence in their understanding of different AI capabilities. In time, they will become more creative in their tackling of real-world problems.

The core of the courses lies in the encapsulation of artificial intelligence/machine learning technology which is professional and difficult. the operation interface and course content are redesign and integration so that the difficulty of course system built step by step and the AI knowledge is effectively transmitted.

Curriculum

Children ‘s AI Programming 000 – Scratch Jr

Scratch Jr is an introductory programming language that encourages creativity and expression, enabling five- to seven-year-old children to create their own interactive projects through coding. It provide young children with opportunities to design, create, and express themselves. Using Scratch Jr, children can use the programming blocks to bring their characters to life.
*Scratch Jr course duration: Session#1 -> Session#2. (16 hours per each session)

Children ‘s AI Programming 001 – Scratch 3.0

Extending from Google’s CS First themed curriculum, we introduce grades 2-5 students (7 years-old and up) to coding principles, all in project-based activities. Kids will systematically learn to program in Scratch, meanwhile explore storytelling techniques, build fun games and craft interesting presentations. The projects will showcase their creativity with the aid of coding and digital designs.
*Scratch course duration: Session#1 -> Session#2 -> Session#3 -> Session#4. (16 hours per each session)

Children ‘s AI Programming 002 – Scratch+AI

Have you ever wondered how Alexa could always find an answer to your whimsical questions? We have and we figured that out, in Scratch. Using the proprietary AI platform built by Thinkland.ai, we introduce grades 4-8 students to the concept of machine learning and its applications in real life. Learning with 10 projects from different AI focuses all implemented in Scratch, the kids will explore the meanings of artificial intelligence in our daily life and the engineering principles behind these AI-based applications.
*Scratch+AI course duration: Session#1 -> Session#2 -> Session#3. (16 hours per each session)

Children ‘s AI Programming 003 – Python

Get started with an introductory session for those interested in learning Python, programming, and how to use programming in various mathematical and scientific tasks. Students will install Python 3.8, learn the basics of Python programming, and apply the basics to various tasks. And then gradually expand to computational thinking skills behind software application design.
*Python course duration: Session#1 -> Session#2 -> Session#3 -> Session#4. (16 hours per each session)

Children’s AI Programming 005 – Java

An in-depth course detailing everything related to java, from basic concepts of how a computer functions to advanced concepts that appear on the AP exams. This course blends rigor with fun as students participate in hands-on projects and labs to better understand the language of java and take the step into more advanced coding.
*Java course duration: Session#1 -> Session#2. (16 hours per each session)
