Remote Learning Classes
Ages: 8 - 12 years
6 students to a teacher
10 or 20 sessions
Apr 19 - Jul 3
We will work out the day/time
together once you book
This course builds on the foundations of ‘Introducing Scratch’ and starts exploring more complex projects where you need to put together multiple concepts, and have various interactions among sprites. By the end of this course, your child will be confident building their own sophisticated games, animations and stories.
Choose this course if your child has completed ‘Introducing Scratch’ with us, or has now been building games and animations using Scratch confidently, for e.g. has done more than a year. of Scratch coding at school, or developed multiple complex games, stories using Scratch.
It’s just too much fun, so much better than school!
E, age 10
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.
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 6 students per teacher to maximise both learning through collaboration with peers and personal attention from the teacher.
Q: Is my child ready for Python?
Well, it's very hard to say without having worked with them. We always aim to push the boundaries, while still ensuring lots of fun. And as we do that, we are constantly trying to assess whether they are ready for the next level or not. If they are, you'd be the first one to know.
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 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?
We will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. Please feel free to call us at +44-75398-90926 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply "Contact Us" at the bottom of our homepage.
