This is a fun, introduction to coding for kids using block-based coding. We use a variety of tools such as interactive puzzles, Blockly and Scratch to teach the basics of coding to kids.

Kids can easily snap together programming blocks to create amazing games, animations and stories. Through this program not only do they learn fundamental coding concepts, but they are also able to express their creativity and imagination through their projects. Critical math and literacy concepts are also reinforced.

The program consists of up to 3 levels depending on the age of the child. Each level 12 weeks long.

The following is an outline of each level.

Level 1: First Coders - An introduction to coding for young kids (ages 6+) using a series of puzzles and challenges involving their favorite animated characters.

Level 2: Scratch Prime - Kids will learn to code using the visual programming language Scratch and start building their own games and animations!

Level 3: Scratch Alpha - Master block-based coding in Scratch by building advanced games such as racing games, platformers and by creating complex animations and stories.

FAQs:

Does my child need to bring their own device?

We will have Android tablets at our centre to be used by the students. However, if you prefer, you can send your child with their own iPad or Android tablet. The Scratch Jr app will need to be installed on the tablet before the first class. Note that Scratch Jr does not work on mobile phones or laptops.

What programming language will you teach?

We will teach coding using Scratch Jr, a visual programming language specifically built by MIT to teach coding to kids.

What will be the teacher-to-student ratio?

There will be a maximum of 5 students per instructor.

Will you provide a refund if the centre has to be shut down due to COVID-19 related regulations?

If the centre is shut down for more than 1 month we will refund the tuition fees for the unused classes.
