Elle Lab is First Code Academy’s girls-only coding camps series. Our founder Michelle has been empowering young girls how to code from Silicon Valley to different parts of Asia. Having educated in a girls’ only environment through her primary and secondary school years, she believes in the power of a uni-gender education environment. Through the experience of First Code Academy, we have seen many girls coming to our courses wishing there were more other girls in the classrooms.
We believe that the next generation of female leaders is bold, resourceful and creative. Elle Lab’s vision is to create that community of leaders from an early age.
Elle Lab aims to provide an inclusive environment, that is friendly and inviting for girls to experience coding the first time, meet fellow creative girls-coders and create projects with technology.
Side selling points:
- The first girls-only coding camp experience in Asia
- We will be running the same camps (AppJamming, Minecraft, etc), the only difference is the girls only classroom environment
We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.
Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.
First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
