Preparing your child for the digital future

ripplecreate is your partner of choice when it comes to equipping your child with the skill of coding and gain an understanding of STEAM-related knowledge (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics).


What is coding?

Coding is writing instructions in a language the computer can understand. It is the form of communication with computers. When writing a program for a computer, we are giving commands in code so that computers can understand and execute them. With coding, you can create your own possibilities – games, websites, mobile applications, and more! You code to interact with the technologies you use every day.

Sphero SPRK+ is a programmable robot ball to inspire curious young minds through coding and play. Children can easily learn programming and complete hands-on STEAM activities. Sphero SPRK+ has programmable sensors that are connected to accelerometer, gyroscope and motor encoders. Grow your coding skills Sphero SPRK+ has something fun in store for you.

Bee-Bot

Bee-Bot is a programmable floor robot designed specifically to expose children to hands-on programming. This colourful, easy-to-operate, and friendly robot is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation and problem-solving! Bee-Bot is a perfect companion to learn shapes, spatial orientation, alphabet and other skills suitable from the age of 4. Children will understand control, directional language and spatial reasoning.

Matatalab Pro Set

Matatalab is a hands-on coding robot which can help in cognitive development and introduction to coding. A key feature of Matatalab is its entirely tactile-based operation - no screen or devices are required! Children will use Matatalab to understand fundamental principles of coding: logical sequencing, debugging and pattern recognition.

Wonder Workshop Dash

Dash is a great platform to introduce children to robotics and build on their computational thinking skills at the same time. It is compatible with some mobile applications with varying levels of difficulty to cater to different age groups. Through block-based coding, young users will be able to interact with the Dash robot. In turn, Dash responds by emitting audio and light responses to keep users engaged in their learning.

LEGO WeDo 2.0

LEGO WeDo is a robotics hardware and software platform designed to enhance student's skills in science, engineering, and technology. This platform follows the 4 C's process – Connect to a story, Construct a model, Contemplate its function, and Continue improving its design. LEGO WeDo is designed to encourage critical thinking and expose children to topics such as earth and space sciences.

Scratch Jr

This a great platform to introduce children to block-based programming. It is a user-friendly code block-based programming platform that helps children to learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively on the tablet.

Makeblock Neuron

Neuron is a programmable electronic building block platform that enhances STEAM education. Neuron offers electronic blocks, including sensors for voice, light and infrared. Makeblock Neuron responds through audio, visual and somatosensory as the user plays with blocks. This interaction engages the young users and introduces to scientific principles behind various phenomena.
