What you will learn

  • Apply fundamental concepts of Computer Programming to games and stories and have fun with them


  • Learn advanced techniques and design thinking as you build your own cool games and share with the community


  • Solve problems in a structured way, develop critical reasoning, logical thinking and gain creative confidence

Requirements & Setup

  • A laptop or desktop computer with an active internet connection

  • A microphone and speakers. Ideally, you should also have a camera - a webcam or an inbuilt camera in your laptop) for video calling, although this is not necessary.

  • If you are on the Python course, you will need to install Python on your computer, so you need the permissions to install software on your computer.

Course FAQs

Q: What are the prerequisites for this course? What do I need to know?

You should already have created your own projects - games, animations and stories - using Scratch before and be comfortable with it.



Q: How many teachers would you have in a class?

We aim for no more than 8 students per teacher to maximise learning through collaboration with peers and personal attention from the teacher.



Q: There's Scratch, there's Python, Java, Web development, Robotics, Mobile App Development and a myriad of other coding courses out there? How do I choose where my child should start?

Scratch has been designed (at MIT) to teach kids how to code in a fun and interactive way. If your child is just about starting on his/her computing journey, or is a visual learner or if you are in doubt, Scratch is the perfect place to start. Once your child learns Scratch, a text based programming language such as Python or Java is a natural (and great) next step.



Q: Where can I find out more about Scratch itself?

Scratch is designed and maintained by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. The MIT Scratch website here has a lot of information and resources about Scratch. There's also a page for parents.



Q: I want to know more. How can I get in touch?
