SIP's Xietang Sub-district recently saw two events that showed good effects in promoting youngsters' after-school learning.
In the event themed "Hour of Code" at the sub-district's after-school education station, the volunteer teacher taught the participating youngsters basic computer science concepts and skills of programming a simple software for a flying game. The event not only enhanced the youngsters' knowledge and hands-on skills, but also inspired their creativity.
In the event on Sept 12, the volunteer teachers taught a group of kids and their parents to make chiffon cakes. It is learnt that seven other events of the kind will be held later to increase participants’ interest in baking.
