All you need to know

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!

Create a Paintbox Application

Try your hand at digital art as we create a fun Paintbox that you can share with your friends and family, using the wonders of Scratch programming!

Learn to string up different coding blocks together to create interactive functions by applying concepts in programming.

Design Animated Cards

Next, create and personalise your own animated e-card. Make your e-card fun and unique by choosing your favourite colours and even your favourite songs by applying concepts like lists.

By the end of this class, students will learn how to use basic coding blocks in Scratch, like events, broadcast and looks, and apply their knowledge through two creative art projects. They will then be able to share their art projects with their friends and family. With the combination of creativity and code, the sky’s the limit!🚀

Oh! The stuff you'll learn

  1. Understand basic coding blocks of events, broadcast and looks
  2. Apply these concepts via coding an interactive card and a paintbox project
  3. Gain a deeper appreciation for programming

Life skills you'll learn

Logical Thinking
Presentation Skills
Problem Solving

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. 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 a meaningful impact.

Parents love us

The happiest hours of your child's week

"I give the thumbs up. The environment is conducive, the trainers are knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. Last but not least, I am impressed by what they had learn over a short span of time."

"Adam enjoyed himself immensely throughout the 5 days camp. He requested to reach class earlier and when he was home, he continued working on his coding projects after dinner. I’ve never seen him so serious about anything before."

"My 8 year old son loved the course and kept raving about how fun it was. I think he’s also proud that he could create a game which is self motivating. Last night Friday before he slept, he said “I wished there is class tomorrow!”
