4. RoboCode 101 for Little Ones and Juniors
Introduce your kids to the exciting world of coding with RoboCode 101!
RoboCode 101 for Little Ones is a 3-hour session that will introduce children in Grades 1 – 3 to coding, while RoboCode 101 for Juniors is for those in Grades 4 – 6 and takes place over 4 Saturday mornings.
The lessons focus on investigating the fundamentals of coding , while the workshops are problem-based, encouraging participants to make their own discoveries as they solve puzzles with their S2 Scribbler robots. This approach allows children to start tackling problems like real computer scientists.
5. Eden on the Bay Mall
Why don’t you welcome in the new month (and second half of the year!) with a bit of everything this weekend?
Eden on the Bay Mall has got plenty on offer; from Findlay’s R98 all-you-can-eat breakfast buffets to Saints Burger Joint’s rocking live music in the evenings. Spend your time in between with a leisurely stroll along the walkway, a little retail therapy, and some R&R at Aiyara Thai Spa or Smoothe Beauty Bar.
End off your weekend with tasty sundowners from Seat, or indulgent mochaccinos from Cup & Cake; whichever way the weather swings your fancy!
