Team AppZappSuper built an online video conferencing platform for students working on school group projects which used Machine Learning and video analytics to diffuse group conflict in realtime - super impressive stuff guys!
National Olympiad for Informatics 2019
Overall Champion & Gold Medallist
Daniel, 15
Meet Daniel, one of our pioneering students with a real passion and talent for coding. Daniel has been a weekly regular on Campus ever since 2016, moving through Principles 1-8 before attending our Principles X master classes in React Programming, Algorithms and Machine Learning. Daniel won a Silver medal on his first try at the NOI in 2018, and in just two years of coding competitively, managed to leap to top position at the NOI by winning a Gold Medal and Overall Champion in 2019. What an accomplishment!
The Singapore National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI) is an annual competition hosted by the School of Computing (SoC) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) since 1998. The competition focuses on the finer points of programming, which involves useful algorithmic techniques and problem-solving skills, and is modelled after the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), the ultimate international competition in computing organised by UNESCO for pre-U students worldwide. Solutions are judged according to their correctness (i.e., whether they produce the correct answers) as well as their speed of execution (i.e., producing the answers within a time limit).
Daniel was first introduced to algorithms in our Principles X class, which spurred him to pursue the topic further and put his competence to the test by participating in the 2018 edition of the NOI. Instead of building a tangible project, Daniel was required to individually solve and program a solution to each of 4-5 programming tasks (with subtasks of varying difficulties) over five hours. He received a Silver Medal for his efforts - an admirable accomplishment indeed! Daniel also landed an 11th placing amongst all Singaporeans at the regional Asia-Pacific Olympiad (APIO) 2018, and hopes to represent Singapore at the IOI in 2020.
Daniel enjoys coding as a hobby and tries to find time to code whenever he can, especially during the weekends and school holidays. He hopes to pursue higher studies in computer science and aspires to enter a job related to machine learning.
AppJamming Summit 2019
International Finalist
Nahshon, 11 | Kate, 9 | Victor, 9
Meet three amazing kids who have achieved impressive outcomes in the 2 years that they have been coding with SG Code Campus! After attending Basics X together, Team Konvicshon (an amalgamation of their names) represented Singapore in the finals of the App Jamming Summit 2019 held on 17 March in Hong Kong. What a mean feat it was edging out over 200 other participants from all over the world at such a tender age!
Konvichon built a Kultura Singapura mobile app that helps kids learn more about the cultures of the four main races in Singapore (Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Eurasian). Users embark on a gamified learning journey, by redeeming virtual artefacts earned from answering a variety of culturally-themed quiz questions.
Being the super enterprising and passionate kids that they are, it is no wonder that Konvicshon even managed to catch the attention of the Ministry of Education with their idea ;) We cannot wait to see what's next in store for them!
DSTA Young Defence Scientist Programme
Programme Scholar 2018
Cedric, 15
Cedric has been coding since he was in Primary 5, and believes that code is the key to solving many of the world's problems. In the last few years, Cedric has been fortunate to have had numerous opportunities to gain real-world experience in working with code, and to apply his passion and talent in technology to develop meaningful and impactful solutions.
In April 2018, Cedric was awarded the Young Defence Scientist Programme scholarship from the Defence Science and Technology Agency of Singapore (DSTA). He received a $1000 grant to conduct research in cyber-security under a DSTA mentor, and is currently utilising the machine learning skills he picked up in our Principles X - Machine Learning course to identify unauthorised sales postings on the e-commerce website Carousell!
Cedric is also part of a team of students from Hwa Chong Institution that was one of only 7 groups worldwide to be granted funding of $20,500 by the Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (SIGKDD) for a "Budding Data Scientist Hackathon", and is currently working with this teammates to tackle a social challenge of their interest using data science.
As a regular participant in the IMDA Hackathon over the last two years, Cedric has also worked with his fellow Code Campers to build a smart inventory system that makes use of infrared sensors to monitor shelf levels, as well as a voice-activated business intelligence dashboard which is capable of forecasting a company's financial performance using machine learning. His exposure to these various learning platforms over the last two years has given him a taste of what he is able to accomplish with the power of code.
IMDA Hackathon 2018
1st Prize, Junior Category
Darion, 11 | Austin, 11 | Ashir, 10
Darion, Austin and Ashir had each been coding with SG Code Campus for over a year but only met each other weeks before the 2018 IMDA hackathon. In the 2 weeks before emerging as champions, they managed to organise themselves, collaborate intensively together on their code and learn about Machine Learning to design and build an activity recommendation engine using Scratch X and IBM Watson.
Inspired by their experience in primary school, Team Charcoal Leaf observed that many school-going children don’t know what to do with their time during the school holidays and end up wasting it away. Many kids also do not have the time nor the resources to find courses that they may enjoy. To solve this problem, the team decided to make a chatbot that recommends courses to kids based on their interest.
After attending a holiday bootcamp on Campus together, they submitted their chatbot for the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore's (IMDA) CodeXtremeApps hackathon. This nation-wide coding competition seeks to challenge minds and inspire innovative solutions for current issues that affect us. Each year, our Code Campers take part in this nation-wide coding competition to test their coding chops and teamwork (and have fun while doing so!). In line with the 2018 theme of “Changing Our World with AI”, teams were challenged to solve real problems and improve our lives with new and innovative solutions through the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Not only did the team produce a multi-feature program free of bugs, but they had strong presentation skills, a good understanding of how machines learn and deep empathy for the end-users who would find their app useful. Combining all these strengths, it's no wonder they impressed the judges. Only more good things await these 3 young programmers!
IMDA Hackathon 2018
2nd Prize, Junior Category
Nahshon, 11 | Kate, 9 | Victor, 9
If you ever saw these three kids coding together, you'd think they were lifelong buddies pursuing a shared passion in computer science and problem-solving. In their year of being classmates at SG Code Campus, this is not far from the truth!
Intrigued by the world of wearable technology for health monitoring, Team Konvicshon recognised that health is one of the most common concerns in our lives. Plenty of people have health-tracking apps, or even wristbands. They wanted to take it one step further by creating a wristband connected to your mobile device that can advise on on your fitness routine and recommend suitable sports, based on your age, gender, steps, heart rate and even BMI. The wristband and corresponding app, which they called “ One Step Further”, was targeted at children aged from 8 to 12, as opposed to most wristbands which are meant for adults.
After attending Basics 4 and a holiday bootcamp together, they submitted their health tracking app in the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore's (IMDA) CodeXtremeApps hackathon. This nation-wide coding competition seeks to challenge minds and inspire innovative solutions for current issues that affect us. Each year, our Code Campers take part in this nation-wide coding competition to test their coding chops and teamwork (and have fun while doing so!). In line with the 2018 theme of “Changing Our World with AI”, teams were challenged to solve real problems and improve our lives with new and innovative solutions through the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Armed with their vision of making the world a healthier and more active place for children, these kids are certainly taking their coding learning journey many steps further!
P/S: Besides their passion for coding, Nahshon is an avid badminton player, Kate loves playing squash and Victor enjoys playing the piano.
IMDA Hackathon 2018
3rd Prize, Junior Category
Roshan, 11 | Onno, 11 | Chuan Teck, 10
Nothing fires up creativity more than boredom! At least that's the case with these 3 young coders. Team SG Coders observed their friends, classmates and family members suffer from boredom and a lack of creative ideas of what to do with their time. To tackle this issue, the team designed and built an AI chatbot to suggest PE exercises to kids in the event that they finished their tasks earlier than their classmates. This would keep kids healthy as well! The team also envisioned that this app could one day be used by the elderly as well.

IB Computer Science HL 2018
Perfect Score: 7 points
Max, 18
Computer Science can be taken as a subject for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, which is offered by a number of secondary schools in Singapore. Students have to complete a project-based Internal Assessment (IA) as part of meeting the requirements for the programme.
Meet Max, 18, who completed Principles 7 in 2018. For his IB Internal Assessment project at the United World College (Dover), Max applied what he learned from our Principles program - using a combination of Python and JavaScript to develop a prototype web portal that allows school administrators to keep track of student attendance. Students tap into school using their student passes and attendance is automatically recorded via an NFC card reader communicating with a Google Cloud backend - impressive!

IMDA Hackathon 2017
3rd Prize, School Category
Cedric, 14 | Daniel, 13 | Elliot, 14
Meet our Principles students who took part in the 2017 Edition of the IMDA Code:XtremeApps Hackathon. Centred around the theme of "My Smart City: Connecting Our Senses", the competition challenged participants to solve real problems from organisations across various sectors using Internet of Things (IoT) technology and standards.
The teams worked over 24 gruelling hours straight to create prototypes of a smart shelving unit which made use of infrared sensors and a video camera to broadcast its storage capacity over the internet. The capacity data was then consumed by a dashboard built with HTML, CSS and JavaScript which allowed for the monitoring of items stored in real time.
Cedric, Daniel and Elliot’s solution won them the 3rd Prize in the School category - a formidable achievement after only 8 months of coding with us on Campus, and at the time, completing Principles 5.

Yawen, 12
Yawen is one of a small handful of primary school kids currently in our Principles sequence. She has been coding religiously with SG Code Campus over the past 2 years, taking courses almost every school term and school holiday without fail. Starting from Basics 3 at 10 years old, she has worked her way through our roadmap, and has most recently completed Principles 5.
Equipped with the skills from her Principles 4 course, Yawen utilised Python and the PyGame library to build this runner game. While it may look simple, the code behind this game is actually very complex. Coding in a full syntax language is challenging, and kids will need to minimally complete and excel in Principles 4 before they will be able to produce a program that looks like this, written in Python.
