This course is designed for parents who want to re-direct their child’s natural enthusiasm for playing games into creating games and coding.

It is an ideal course to help your child to learn how to code. This course involves coding two new games, thereby extending their knowledge and skills, after which they will use what they have learnt to create their own games.

Students will learn advanced coding techniques including timer countdowns, steering, acceleration and deceleration, repelling sprites, continuous motion, sprite costume animation and control, transferring sprite properties between sprites, colour effect animations, cloning, timed animation, sound control, advanced variable use, and lists.

Coding is a primary skill for the modern workplace and this course will help give students a head start in their computer studies at school and thereafter at further and higher education and in the workplace.

Our instructor is a qualified and experienced teacher who speaks clearly and precisely, leading the learner through the entire coding process. Each step is explained and demonstrated.

Your child will build confidence with Scratch, acquire advanced games coding skills, and improve their creative, math and computational thinking skills.

As your child learns, their confidence, enthusiasm and passion for coding will increase. As the see the immediate results of their coding efforts  they will not only learn but learn to love learning itself. Children have a natural infinity with computer technologies and this course is the perfect way to turn that energy into useful educational outcomes.
