The Tickle course aims to equip young curious minds with computer programming concepts as well as robotics. Students explore programming concepts using robotics on the iPad app, Tickle. Similar to Hopscotch and ScratchJr, this app allows the creation of small programs using color coded blocks, and allows interaction of characters and robots.
Students start with basic computing commands including movements, looks and sounds, then integrate their computing commands with robots such as Sphero and Dash. The course incorporate sensors and motions of robots to deepen students' understanding on essential computing concepts including input/output, sequences and lists.

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.
