Speaking to a group of parents and children in IDA Labs, Jurong Regional Library, Mr Wee shared on a topic relevant in the technology-driven world today – “Getting your kids started on programming”. Briefly, he pointed out several free resources in print, online, and in the community, as well as how they can be relevant for parents without any coding background to teach computational skills to their children. The sharing concluded with a hands-on workshop for them to learn microcontroller programming and explore some of the pointers shared earlier in the session. We are heartened to share our passion and education philosophy to a number of parents and children across the different sessions conducted over two months!
