    Scratch is a great introduction to computer programming concepts. It is a drag and drop coding environment which suits children from the age of 6. Students explore the Scratch interface and familiarise themselves with capabilities of this program. They build their own computer games, animations and multimedia art, whilst in the process they discover computer science principles.

    4. Scratch for beginners (Year 2-6) $147

    All Coding Mentors have blue cards and each program is aligned with the Australian Curriculum.

    Computational thinking supports computer programming and is fundamental to problem-solving across a range of disciplines including sciences, humanities and social sciences.

    Each workshop is held in an encouraging and supportive environment and Coding Kids Mentors note mistakes are a necessary stepping stone and part of the trial and error learning process.
