About this Event

Be introduced to the basics of computational thinking through a block-based programming language known as Scratch. Build simple games and animations and begin your coding journey today!

KEEPIN’ IT SHORT & SNAPPY

  • No experience necessary: Recommended starting course for kids 7+
  • In depth intro to block-based programming
  • Code for fun! Who says programming can’t be fun?
  • Scratch is free online! Continue the learning at home
"My kids had a blast & came home armed with knowledge & information which they were excited to share with us." - Joanne, Parent

Scratchers Assemble!

Introducing Scratch, a visual programming language created specifically for kids. It’s a block-based programming language where kids learn to code through a simple drag-and-drop visual interface, lowering the barriers to learning for kids who aren’t yet proficient with using a keyboard.

So basically, Scratch is all the fun of coding with none of the hassle of typing!

With just a foundational understanding of Scratch, you can learn how to create your own games, animations, stories, quizzes… with coding superpowers, your imagination’s the limit!

Get creative with animations

Create interactive simulations like this Piggy Bank to help you keep track of your savings.

Or just go all out and clone your sprite and have them dance around on the screen. With basic programming skills and knowledge, you can try create whatever you want, or figure out what you need to code up what you want!

Build your own games

We’ll teach you the basics of game design – use your skills in Scratch to go wild and create your own games! Make it into a #circuitbreaker challenge, and have the whole family come together to have some fun. 🙂

Here’s an example of a Scratch game created by a kid coder from one of our classes.

Code with purpose – now that you’ve learnt the basics of Scratch and are a pro at making animations and coding simple games, how about creating something sweet for all our essential workers out there? #stayhomestaycurious

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime. Let's get kids to learn how to learn.

Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make meaningful impact.

Parents love us

"...and for the first time he is not running to play other people's creations but his own... I am absolutely delighted in the 'mindset' change in my son's attitude." - Emma, Parent
"Thank you for a wonderful and exciting enrichment program that is so much more than academics.. it's fun but for me as a mum, an important future skill set for my son." - Rachel, Parent

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Of course! Start with Scratch is our recommended introduction to programming course for kids 7 and up. Most of our students come in with no prior programming knowledge and they can still make awesome projects at the end of the day.

2. My child has done some Scratch programming at school. Should he/she still attend this course?

If you’re not too sure how much your child knows about Scratch programming, email us a link to your child’s Scratch profile and we can take a look and advise you.

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

Scratch was designed for 7-10 year olds but is used by people of all ages. Sadly, having a 6 year old in the same class as a 10 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 3 participants. Please 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.
