From a curious peek into classic games beloved by people all over the world, explore the nature of gameplay with code as our medium, as we recreate some of the most popular games over the years with Scratch!
Games can be incredibly entertaining, but did you know they can also inspire empathy, build awareness, and make an impact? In the final module of Coding the Impossible, create a capstone project on Scratch that bridges what you’ve learned about coding with social and environmental questions – design and develop a fun-packed digital game aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Just because games are a tonne of fun, it doesn’t mean they can’t be meaningful!
Discover the world of games for good, and create and code your own game that is as impactful as it is fun to play.
What are the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), and why do they matter? As a class, we’ll learn about the 17 goals for the shared peace and prosperity of people and our planet. And more importantly, we’ll embark on a journey to understand our role in working towards these goals, and pick up basic research skills navigate the wealth of data and information on the internet.
As we explore a range of social impact games first-hand, get inspired to code up your own game for good. With each module anchored around a selected SDG, apply programming concepts from the first 3 modules of Coding the Impossible creatively to projects relevant to issues like climate change, sustainable cities, and more.
Create an educational quiz game based on the UNSDG of your choice…
Code a Platformer game about life on land…
Design and build a Choose Your Own Adventure game rooted in the realities of the climate crisis…
Bring together all you’ve learned about programming and the UNSDGs to create and code up a game with a larger impact.
We can’t wait to see what you kids will make – creating a better future ain’t a burden – it’s an adventure. Playing for the future starts here.

Life skills you'll learn
No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.
"I give the thumbs up. The environment is conducive, the trainers are knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. Last but not least, I am impressed by what they had learn over a short span of time."
"Adam enjoyed himself immensely throughout the 5 days camp. He requested to reach class earlier and when he was home, he continued working on his coding projects after dinner. I’ve never seen him so serious about anything before."
"My 8 year old son loved the course and kept raving about how fun it was. I think he’s also proud that he could create a game which is self motivating. Last night Friday before he slept, he said “I wished there is class tomorrow!”
If your kid doesn't think it's the best thing ever after attending the first 2 days of holiday camps (or first 3 weeks of term classes), and would like to withdraw, we'll issue you a 50% credit note of the amount paid.
