Scratch Coding for Beginners (8 Lessons)

Wed, October 7, 2020 - Wed, November 18, 2020 (6:30 pm - 7:30 pm)

Description

Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation with people from all over the world. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically. Having children learn coding at a young age prepares them for the future. Coding helps children with communication, creativity, math, writing, and confidence. This lesson will provide you with an introduction to Scratch programming through an interactive talk, live demonstrations and a fun activity. Building blocks of Scratch will be demonstrated through game development.

Here is a glimpse of our Scratch Coding for Kids small group live online classes by our expert teacher.

I am an engineering PhD student at Durham University, UK. I love to code because if I can think it, I can make it a reality. I love to code because it is fun. The ability to solve problems is a trait that is useful in life in general. We all want our children to become excellent problem solvers so that they can overcome any adversity they face. Learning to code gives children the chance to learn this type of skill while they are young and it can help them along the way in life. This is one of the big reasons coding is important to learn. I am a patient, caring and supportive Programming tutor with an excellent experience of teaching due to working in a school and part-time tutoring. I am myself working in Python and Artificial Intelligence (AI) as in self-driving cars and robots. My aim is always to raise the achievements of my pupils beyond their own expectations with challenging and rewarding lessons. I always start with the basics then progress with plenty of practice questions.
