Project Details

Computational Thinking and Coding Education

The aim of the coding education project is to nurture and enhance youth’s capabilities of computational thinking through coding mobile applications. The objectives of the project are to: (1) Equip senior primary school students with fundamental programming concepts as the foundations for learning more in the future; (2) Develop computational thinking, including logical thinking and problem solving skills, of senior primary school students; (3) Develop computational thinking perspectives of senior primary school students, including understandings of themselves, their relationships to others, the technological world, and the generation of interest and motivation for further advancement in coding and computational thinking; and (4) Raise public awareness of the importance of developing computational thinking of the young generation starting at an early learning stage.
