  Mona Tan, Lead Educator    B.Sc. Statistics, NUS Minor in Computing NUS High School Two-time Winner, Singapore VEX Robotics Championships (SILVER)    Mona’s love for all things tech began when her parents brought home a Macintosh when she was 3. She started playing computer games and fell in love with technology. Her interests in technology extend beyond software, and you can often find her taking apart hardware to take a look at what’s inside.  A self-confessed tech geek who has done and taught robotics for almost a decade, Mona started her teaching career right after she graduated from the prestigious NUS High School, teaching robotics and various other math and science subjects. She was also part of the team of the NUS High Robotics Club which won twice at the Singapore VEX Robotics Championships (Silver).  Mona holds a Bachelor of Science (Statistics) with a minor in Computing from the National University of Singapore. She delights in translating her passion and talent for coding into the bright young minds of children, hoping that many, like her, will discover the joys of STEM learning and go on to build and create their favourite things. She firmly believes that computer literacy is the language of the future and that everyone should at least give it a try.
