Scratch Beginners Course for Kids (10 – 12)

Scratch Beginners Course for Kids (10 – 12)

Develop your Child’s Logical Thinking and Problem Solving Skills with Coding


Designed specifically for children (age 10-12) who are completely new to programming / coding, this program introduces our children to a lifelong skill that is important for the future.

Children will be using Scratch, a graphics based computer coding language developed by Mitchel Resnick, LEGO Papert Professor of Learning Research and head of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT media labs.

At the end of the course, students feel empowered to create, design and develop computational media which they enjoy in their daily lives. They start their journey to build the next blockbuster game (Eg. Angry Birds or Flappy Bird) here.

Most importantly, this programme strengthens their logical and problem solving skills which are useful in many aspects of life, be it immediately in their studies (e.g. Mathematics Problem Sums, Science, etc) or in the future.
