CodePrep is a fun-packed taster programme to give you a feel for what problem-solving with coding entails and an opportunity to bond over trying something new together.

The Friday workshops are suitable for families with primary school children.

Case Study: Family Social Innovation Makerthon in Development Bank of Singapore, Shanghai

Family Makerthon in DBS, Shanghai

Code for Asia’s one-day Family Makerthon workshop conducted in DBS, Shanghai exposed parents and children to how they can apply coding to solve silver generation challenges. We started by inviting participants to share their ideas for challenges faced by their grandparents, followed by a demonstration of coding a popular Chinese series of the time - 中国诗词大会 (Chinese Poetry Conference) - into a Scratch quiz game, allowing them to learn by doing. One of our participating family eventually emerged as winner in the overall competition series and was able to come to Singapore to visit the local social innovation initiatives.


Case Study: Global Issues Network in Hong Kong Academy

Code for Asia at Global Issues Network, Hong Kong Academy

In Hong Kong, middle school kids from around Asia who had gathered for the Global Issues Network at Hong Kong Academy was able to construct their own “minimal tree spanning” algorithms unknowingly through an unplugged group activity! In this exercise, students had to figure out the minimum number of steps needed to connect all the houses in a city, learning to decompose problems and designing algorithms in the process.
