Scratch Coding

Give your child a head-start by learning how to code games.  

Whilst the theory and logic of coding has remained the same for decades, methods have evolved significantly. This camp is ideal for younger kids to get to grips with coding. Scratch is a fantastic visual-based coding editor which enables children to create fun animations, interactive stories, games, sounds and much more! It’s the perfect introduction to coding and computational thinking that makes coding for kids seriously fun!

About this camp

This camp will give your child a head start in learning how to code. After a short orientation, they will use Scratch’s visual coding environment to cover the key areas of branching and iteration plus variables and game logic. Your child will use engaging projects to learn how to create fun, interactive and animated games as well as code their Ozobot to race, dance and even complete the FunTech maze!

By the end of the week's computer coding classes your child will be a Scratch Coding expert!
