Course Description

For Ages 7-10

Bring your favourite offline games into the digital realm by translating what it means to play with code, in this deep dive into interactive animations.

  • Follow on course to Coding the Impossible 0 or Start with Scratch
  • Develop mastery of and confidence in basic coding concepts
  • Deep dive into programming animations with Scratch as a component of game design and development
  • Apply logic and creativity to translating offline play into a coded animation

All you need to know

As we kickstart our journey at the intersection of coding, games, and impact, we’ll start out by learning all about the workings of one of the key building blocks of digital games – animations.

We’ll bridge the worlds of digital and unplugged games by translating our favourite ways to play offline onscreen – honing our logic and creativity by coding up animations based on the unplugged games we love.

Think applying programming concepts like sequencing to the movement of a skateboarder or yo-yo, or choreographing a game of hopscotch or catching using Scratch.

As you learn about creating fun-packed, impactful experiences with code, you’ll build on basic coding concepts to discover more complex ones, and establish a solid foundation in both technical and equally important soft skills that’ll put you in good stead as a creative coder and game-maker cum change-maker.

By the end of this module, you’ll be all ready to put your animation skills to good use as we dive into the world of classic games and how technology has evolved to take them into the future!

Oh! The stuff you'll learn

  • Hone your understanding of basic coding concepts through application; introduction to more advanced coding concepts
  • Exposure to real world applications of programming
  • Practise expressing and communicating your ideas creatively with code
  • Deep dive into programming animations with Scratch as a component of game design and development

Life skills you'll learn

Design Thinking
Logical Thinking
Presentation Skills
Problem Solving

Pedagogy

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. My child is new to computers and programming. Will he/she be able to follow?

If your child has no prior experience with Scratch or coding, we strongly recommend starting them out with Coding the Impossible 0 or its corresponding 5-day holiday camp, Start with Scratch, which is also available as an online camp

2. Who is this class suitable for?

This module is suitable for kids who have completed Coding the Impossible 0 or its corresponding 5-day holiday camp, Start with Scratch. If you’re uncertain how much your child knows about Scratch programming, please email us a link to your child’s Scratch profile and we can take a look and advise you.

3. I’ve enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?

We’ll provide all equipment and materials, but you may want to bring a jacket and light snacks in case they get hungry.
