Previous intermediate experience of Scratch recommended
Help your child to learn a wide range of advanced Scratch coding techniques, extend their knowledge and skills, then use what they have learnt to create their own games.
This course is designed for parents who want to re-direct their child’s natural enthusiasm for playing games, into creating and coding games.
Students will learn advanced coding techniques including gun inventories, grapple hooks, vehicle control, self steering auto-bots, tanks, force fields, automated advanced quizzes, and platform riding. Once learnt these techniques can be used to create new games or to add functionality to existing games.
Coding is a primary skill for the modern workplace and this course will help give students a head start in their computer studies at school and thereafter at further and higher education and in the workplace.
Our instructor is a qualified and experienced teacher who speaks clearly and precisely, leading the learner through the entire coding process. Each step is explained and demonstrated.
Your child will build confidence with Scratch, acquire advanced games coding skills, and improve their creative, math and computational thinking skills.
As your child learns, their confidence, enthusiasm and passion for coding will increase. As the see the immediate results of their coding efforts they will not only learn but learn to love learning itself. Children have a natural infinity with computer technologies and this course is the perfect way to turn that energy into useful educational outcomes.
