SCHOOL OF SPARKS – WITH KODECOON
School of Sparks is a newly-launched initiative by GoGuru that introduces a series of experiential STEAM workshops and classes – all designed to promote a holistic active learning amongst young learners through engaging and fun experiences through their learning journey.
Following the success of our sold-out workshops, we are excited to team up with our partners from Kodecoon again for a transformational afternoon. Join us at this 90-minute experiential session and bring out your child’s inner techie to the world of programming through our principles of coding workshop!
Parents will also be treated to a 10 min complimentary head & shoulder massage provided by Mary Chia, our official venue sponsor. It will be the perfect massage to instantly pamper your overworked neck and shoulder muscles as well as the scalp. This brief but highly satisfying massage works to put every strain of your muscle into a "rest and relax" mode for a complete rejuvenating experience.

Bringing fun learning beyond classrooms
A 90-min enriching session suitable for aspiring young techies from ages between 7 to 12 years old.
This class is designed to prepare and introduce the First Line of Code using a programming software, Scratch to our pupils at school of sparks who are new to coding!
Through this introductory class, your child will have the first step into the world of programming and transform from a consumer to a creator of technology. The objective of this class is to help parents access their child’s level of interest in coding as well as their logical thinking process in a day to day life.

Acquire a new skill! Assume the role of a creator and enter the world of programming. Learn to develop your first game with guidance from our instructors. Aspiring techies with no prior knowledge in coding are welcomed to join too!
What do you get?
Take home your learnings and tips from the experts on coding. All participants will also receive a GoGuru backpack worth $50 filled with fun learning materials! Feel free to join us for a 20-minute parent talk by the founder of Kodecoon to understand the changing workforce and education landscape in Singapore.
Kodecoon believes that a child’s programming journey resembles the process of metamorphosis where a cocoon adapts in the new environment, transforms itself before breaking through to emerge into a butterfly.
Kodecoon was founded on the mission to expose children to the world of computer programming and through that, empower them with logical thinking, creativity and problem-solving skills. In today’s digital world, programming language is the new literacy. Rather than showing your children how a computer works, we will teach them how to make a computer work for them. We want every child we teach to have fun with coding and learn to be creators and change makers, rather than passive consumers of technology.
