Course information

Coding, just like any other language, is learned best at a young age. There are many ways to teach programming, however, the main challenge is how to explain abstract mathematical concepts like axis, parameters and variables to young children.
Scratch, a programming language that was developed by MIT, rises to the challenge. It uses colorful animation to help illustrate difficult concepts and opens a door to the wonderful world of code.

This introductory course invites kids to create games, videos and stories through Scratch, while learning the foundations of coding so there’s no need for previous experience.

Kids will get to know the Scratch learning environment, its friendly animated characters and cool graphic design tools. They will create fun games by dragging and dropping built-in blocks of code, which will help them implement the internal logic and structure of programming.
