  • Focused On Creativity

    While reviewing coding skills, students will also have a chance to express themselves and to build up their creativity in digital art and fashion design. Through animations, photograph filters, and storytelling, students can experiment with their ideas in various ways.

  • Grab A Friend

    Coding doesn’t have to be a single-person activity. Grab a friend and create a dialogue about your friendship. Keep the story interesting by mixing up backgrounds and outfits for different places you like to go together.
