Event Details

Holiday Camp

Intermediate Scratch Programming

 

Schedule: Mon 12 Dec - Fri 16 Dec, 10am-1pm

Ages: 7 - 12

Requirements: Completion of a Beginner's Scratch Programming course


   

Goals

Building on their basic knowledge of Scratch, by the end of this course, your kids will be able to create more interactivity into their projects, animations, and level up their games with multiple levels, timers, and health counters.

 

Course Description

  • It isn't every day that kids can learn to shape the future.
  • Saturday Kids offers an introductory programming class in Scratch, a visual programming language for kids, developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab.
  • In these classes, we get children excited about the wonders of coding. Kids learn to code by creating interactive stories, games, and other projects in Scratch.
  • With its modular framework, Scratch makes it easy for kids to have fun while developing important problem-solving skills. Scratch teaches kids to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
  • Scratch was designed for 7-16 year olds but is used by people of all ages.

 

Instructors

Instructors at Saturday Kids are curious about design and technology. They come from diverse backgrounds such as psychology, design, business and computer science. They are not necessarily software engineers by training, but having taught themselves programming as they believe computational thinking and digital literacy are basic skills every child needs.

 

Course Outline

1. Scratch It

Students warm up to the Scratch environment by viewing and exploring a variety of sample projects on the Scratch website.

 

2. Moves Like Scratch

Students familiarize themselves with the Scratch interface by experimenting with triggers and controlling the movements and looks of their sprites.

 

3. Broadcast A Scratch

Students experiment programming parallel events and triggers with multiple sprites, costumes, and stages.

 

4. Time's Up Scratch!

Students add complexity to their projects with conditions and variables such as timers, life counters, level, scores.

 

5. Scratch That Bug!

Students test and debug each other's codes and programme final changes to their games, using logic and systematic reasoning.

 

6. Share and Present!

Students share their projects with their friends and reflect on their creative experiences throughout the workshop.

 

7. Publish and Remix!

Students learn to publish their projects and remix a variety of projects to combine new and creative things they like!

 

FAQs

1. My child is new to computers and programming. Will he / she be able to follow?

We would recommend that your child joins our Beginner's Scratch Programming course, as it’s developed for new programming students.

 

2. My child has done some Scratch programming at school but hasn’t attended any courses. I'm unsure if my child should join the Intermediate level.

For our Intermediate class the requirement is for kids who have already completed an introductory Scratch course which covers all the basic modules that allows your kid to build on a solid foundation.

 

3. My child is younger than 7. Can he / she join?

Scratch was designed for 7-16 year olds but is used by people of all ages. Sadly, having a 6 year old in the same class as a 12 year old may not result in the best learning environment for the younger student. If your child is very keen, we can organise separate classes if there is a minimum of 4 participants. Contact us directly to enquire.

 

4. I've enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?

We'll provide all materials. You might wish to bring a drink, some light snacks and a jacket just in case your child gets cold or hungry. We'll give the class breaks in between so your child can take that time to sip on some juice and munch on those yummy crackers. For full day camps, bring a packed lunch to have in the lunch break. If you're registering for a class at Fidgets, you and your kids will need to bring socks to enter Fidgets World.

  

Please note:

  • This workshop will proceed with a minimum of 6 tickets sold. We will inform you in advance if the workshop is cancelled. Refunds will be made accordingly.
  • We will be filming and taking photographs of the children in our workshop. By registering a child's attendance at this workshop, parents/guardians grant Saturday Kids a perpetual licence to use the student's work, photographs or videos of the student, and other materials for purposes such as publicising or promoting our workshops/events and the students’ accomplishments on Saturday Kids' website or on our partners' websites.

Kids will invent the future. What if they start now?

At Saturday Kids, students don't just learn to code. They code to learn.

 

Kids today live, learn and play in a digital world, so it's never been more important for kids to learn digital literacy.

However, we also recognise that technology is ever changing, what's relevant today might not be so tomorrow. It's nigh impossible to teach a kid everything there is to know...

 

But what we can do is bring out the curiosity in kids.

With our design-based approach emphasising creation, we create an environment where there is no right answerkids are free to explorecan put theory into practice and develop the mindset of "I can figure this out myself" instead of being spoonfed the answers.

 

Saturday kids learn how to learn.

 

If you're a firm believer that what kids learn on Saturdays is just as important as what they learn in school Monday to Friday, let's chat!
