Scratch is the world’s most popular programming language for primary school children. Scratch’s visual coding blocks makes it particularly useful to learn coding concepts and computational thinking. More experienced children can also benefit from Scratch as we will cover more advanced aspects of the language. In this course, children will be learn to create stories; bring animations to life; code musical instruments; design exciting games; and control robots such as Lego EV3 or Sphero.
This class runs like an after school club. There is a class once a week every week at the same time. Scratch sessions last an hour.
