Learn to code with Scratch

Delve into the fundamentals of coding with our Learn to Code with Scratch program, designed to introduce students to the exciting world of computer programming through hands-on projects and creative exploration. With Scratch’s intuitive visual coding interface, students will learn essential coding concepts, unleash their creativity, and develop problem-solving skills while creating interactive stories, games, and animations.

Why Scratch?

Scratch provides an ideal platform for beginners to learn coding due to its intuitive visual interface and block-based programming language, which eliminates the complexities of traditional text-based coding. With Scratch, students can easily drag and drop code blocks to create animations, games, and interactive stories, allowing them to focus on understanding fundamental coding concepts such as sequencing, loops, and conditionals without getting bogged down by syntax errors. Additionally, Scratch fosters creativity and experimentation, empowering beginners to explore their ideas, collaborate with peers, and develop problem-solving skills in a supportive and engaging environment.

An Expertly Curated Learning Path
