AppJamming Summit (AJS) is an international mobile app design competition for young app developers across the World to showcase their talents and creativity. The grand winner would win a sponsored trip to MIT AppInventor Summit in Boston, USA!
AJS was created with the vision to encourage more young people to become Creators of Technology. Started in 2014, the event has built a community of young coders equipped with programming and presentation skills. Over the past 5 years, AJS has engaged over 400+ students across the World and has become a movement in Shaping Future Creators.
The Future of Education – what is the role of parents to prepare our next generation?
The world is changing rapidly into a digital era and that parenting and education play huge roles in influencing the growth of our next generation. With AJS forum, we wish that parents would be able to reflect what is needed for our children and the role of parents in preparing our next generation.
Education is said to be the powerful weapon to change the world. What is the education needed for our students to face the upcoming challenges? While STEM education is a heated topic recently, is this the education needed for students? What would be the advice for parents?
The forum starts at 1430-1530 and we are delighted to discuss the topic with:
- Mr. Chu Tsz Wing, Chief Headmaster of St. Hilary’s Primary School
- Ms. Michelle Sun, Founder and CEO of First Code Academy
We would love to promote the fun of coding to more parents and children! Join us on the day to have the first taste of coding!
- Game Booth (Have fun with robots!)
- 4 sessions of AppJamming Workshop (Suitable for Age 9-11)
- 4 sessions of Scratch Workshop (Suitable for Age 6-8)
- VR Experience
First Code Academy develops and runs computer programming courses and holiday camps tailored for kids and teens in Hong Kong and Singapore.
Our mission is to empower our next generation to be creators using technology. Since established in 2013, we have taught over 2,500 students, 3 of which were admitted to MIT for the AppInventor Summit, global app development competition, and another student have been invited to speak at a TEDx event about his tech spirit.
