Every child learns at his/her own pace and has different learning needs. At Code Campus, we keep our teacher-student ratios (ranging from 1:5 to 1:8) low to ensure that your child gets exactly the attention he/she needs to acquire this critical lifeskill.
In class, we provide a computer for each student so Code Campers can come worry-free and focus on learning. In addition, our innovative curriculum sees students interacting with a wealth of hardware ranging from the Star Wars BB8 © drone by Sphero ©, electronic sensors, pocket-sized computers and Android phones, all of which are provided onsite!
Unlike other institutions that merely offer classes built around introductory coding environments like Scratch, our course sequences are designed to offer our younger students a clear, gradual progression to a fully-featured programming language - Python, empowering them to solve the real-world problems whichever domain they fancy!
To be able to come up with an idea and see it in your hands... and be able to press a button and have it be in millions of people's hands - I think we're the first generation in the world that has ever had that kind of experience.Drew Houston - Founder of Dropbox
The Smart Nation Programme Office lives in the Prime Minister’s department. I take a personal interest in this. 40 years ago, after doing a math degree, I went on to study computer science, on my father’s advice. He said there is a future in that, and he was right.Lee Hsien Loong - Prime Minister of Singapore
An understanding of computer science is becoming increasingly essential in today’s world. Our national competitiveness depends upon our ability to educate our children — and that includes our girls — in this critical field.Sheryl Sandberg - Chief Operating Officer, Facebook
We all depend on technology. To communicate. To bank. Information. And none of us know how to read and write code! [...] Great coders are today's rock stars. That's it.will.i.am - Singer-songwriter, member of The Black Eyed Peas and now taking coding classes
Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn.Stephen Hawking - Theoretical Physicist, Cosmologist, and Author
In the coming years, we should build on that progress [...] by offering every student the hands-on computer science and math classes that make them job-ready on Day 1.Barack Obama - President of the United States of America
To think that you can start something in your college dorm room, have a set of people who haven't built a big company before come together and build something that a billion people use in their daily lives - it's just crazy to think about!Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Facebook

Jessie’s voracious appetite for learning is obvious when you realise that she learnt web programming on her own time while managing risk at one of the world's largest commodity firms. With a previous multi-year stint working as a Python developer for JP Morgan's Athena trading system, Jessie's affinity for code is matched only by her enthusiasm for sharing it with the next generation. She is fascinated by the interplay between spoken and programming languages and believes that neither age nor language should be an impediment to learning how to code. Jessie also keeps us up-to-date well beyond our shores of the latest happenings in the burgeoning Chinese tech world.

Hock's journey in computer science began when he was a freshman taking an introductory coding module in NUS. Realising the vast opportunities available to those who code, Hock decided to pursue a Computer Science minor concurrent to his degree, and has never looked back; his only lament is that he didn't get started earlier. When he's not coding, Hock spends his time volunteering in reading programmes for underprivileged children with the non-profit BLESS. By bringing his long experience of tutoring and volunteering with kids to Code Campus, Hock aims to provide other children with a head-start in the language of the future.
