REGULAR PROGRAM

At Future Ready Academy, regular program is divided into 4 levels, each suitable for a particular age group.
Each of the 4 levels are divided into 4 terms of 10 weeks each. Each week will have 1 session for 2 hours.

LEVEL 1 (AGE 4- 6)

LEVEL 2 (AGE 7 - 8)

LEVEL 3 (AGE 9 -10)

LEVEL 4 (AGE 11 - 14)

In case you are unsure of which level would be most suitable for your child, we offer an easy assessment to gauge the right fit.
With a limited number of seats, we always advise that you plan each level for your child in advance.
We offer admissions on a first come, first serve basis.

Level 1 (FOR KIDS AGED 4-6 YEARS)

Course Description

Level 1 introduces the fundamentals of building robots by explaining the basic structures of engineering design. It goes on to cover the basics of sensors coding, electro-mechanical circuitry. All of these will help develop a complete appreciation of robots and how to make them groove.
 
Our robotics for kids classes begin here. This is the perfect age for your kid to start learning the basics of robotics. By anchoring learning of the digital fundamentals with a pedagogy that fosters curiosity and initiative, your children will inevitably develop the love for learning all things digital.  Consequently, navigating through technology and the digital world will be as natural as breathing for your children. Think about it!
 
Robots have and are increasingly replacing humans, not only on repetitive tasks but also many aspects of accounting, legal, marketing, banking operations and trading, research analyst and even surgeons and radiologist jobs. And the pace of change will only accelerate. Therefore, why not give your kids the edge by exposing them early to the digital world and help them develop the 21st century skills to thrive in the volatile and uncertain future.

Level 2 (FOR KIDS AGED 7-8 YEARS)

Course Description

Level 2 aims to develop the skills on engineering design application. By building on fundamentals learnt in level 1 and applying logical thinking, they will learn how to make robots come alive through programming and story-telling.
 
By building on the basics they learn in level 1, you will be amazed as to how your kids will learn how to learn and learn to adapt through play and teamwork. Children learn best through play. It builds their curiosity and confidence. See your kids develop growth mindsets through our coding classes for kids as they hone their digital and life-skills in a fun, immersive and engaging environment that prepares them for the Future of Work.

Level 3 (FOR KIDS AGED 9 – 10 YEARS)

Course Description

This unit will help students to explore and develop better understanding of how sensors, code, electro-mechanical circuits, and programming all come together to create robotic movements with LEGO Mindstorms. They will also learn more about programming animation and story-telling with Scratch.
 
 At this level, things get really exciting, really fast!  Designed to challenge kids on critical thinking for creative problem-solving in a team-based learning approach that fosters communication and collaboration skills. The program seeks to develop the leadership potential of your kids in many aspects:  story-telling to foster communication and creativity and animation programming to enhance digital skills.

Learning Objectives
  • Understanding use of sensors in programming basic robot movements
  • Application & programming of ultrasonic & color sensors in robots
  • Nurturing communication, collaboration & teamwork for projects
  • Creative game design
  • Story-telling & animation design
  • Public speaking & presentation skills
LEARNING OUTCOME
21st Century Skill Persistence and Communication Adaptability and Numeracy Communication and Initiative Leadership and Literacy
Digital Skills Empowered Learner Knowledge Constructor Innovative Designer Global Collaborator

Level 4 (FOR KIDS AGED 11 – 14 YEARS)

Course Description

This unit will introduce mobile app concept and development and intuitive visual programming environment with the MIT App Inventor, a blocks-based coding program that inspires intellectual & creative empowerment. It changes the way the world codes and the way students learn computing. It also exposes students to build communication apps and program advance robotic movements using gears, levers, claws and grips with LEGO Mindstorms. In short, we take coding for kids to another level in this learning adventure to build, code, play and make robots come alive.
 
With mobile APP development in a visual block-based coding environment, it challenges kids to come up with their own storybook animation.  In this way, it stretches their imagination and enhances their creative juice.  At the same time, it challenges them to integrate the programming with the sensors, circuits and motors that they have assembled into a robot in a way that can make the robots groove.  And when they succeed in doing this, it boosts their confidence and hones their collaboration and teamwork skills.  The outcome are children well-prepared to face the digital future now and beyond.
