Classroom in Action at First Code Academy
At First Code, we believe that learning to code is a great way to nurture creativity and instill confidence in young children. From our classroom rules to our Demo Day event, we are continuously promoting a creative learning environment and building a fun-filled coding community.
One of our classroom values is, "Do things Tell People". We believe a piece of well written software needs to be told to the world.
Get inspired by the pros. Many of our students aspire to use coding skills in their future careers, be it a fashion designer who programs her own runway, a chef who shares his recipes on his app, or a Googler who innovates at the forefront. We bring in industry professionals to share their work, career journey and advice to aspiring software engineers.
Past speakers include: Ray Chan, Co-founder and CEO at 9Gag, Summer Wu, Computer Science Major at Yale, Google Intern, Hugo Barra, VP of International at Xiaomi etc.
At First Code, we believe that learning continues beyond the classroom.
Genius Hour aims to foster a community of creators, where students can come together outside of weekly lesson time to continue building their favourite coding projects with guidance from our team of instructors.
Students are encouraged to bring along their school coding projects or to work on their preparation for AppJamming Summit during Genious Hour.
