Designed specifically for our youngest students with no previous technological experience, our Mini Coders course starts with basic ICT skills and computing concepts to introduce children to the exciting world of coding. Our specially designed activities allow your child to develop their programming skills using Scratch JR, an introductory programming language that enables young children to create their own stories, animations and games. An emphasis is placed on freedom of expression, as our project-based learning encourages children to freely express their creativity as they write and modify code!
In this course, students will create their multiplayer controls, keep their karts on track with game collisions, and foil the competition with collectable power-ups. Students will use Scratch to learn key game-making concepts. They will explore the exciting world of game design, looking specifically at the mechanics, features, and programming needed to make a fully-functioning Scratch racing game. This course covers more advanced game-making techniques and is aimed at students who are familiar with Scratch.
