Scratch Ninja

Developed by MIT, Scratch coding is a great way to introduce kids to computer programming. However, not all kids' coding classes are created equal. In fact, it is far from that. Learning coding is much more about developing computational thinking, creativity, and critical thinking, than writing a couple of programs.

Levels 1 & 2

Developed by MIT, Scratch coding is a great way to introduce kids to computer programming because it uses simple drag-and-drop blocks rather than complex syntax. That means kids can focus on learning core coding concepts and logic, while not getting frustrated with typing errors.  However, not all ways of learning Scratch are created equal. Learning coding is much more about developing computational thinking, creativity, and critical thinking, rather than about writing a couple of programs. Unlike many Scratch coding classes where kids are handed a sheet of paper and asked to follow instructions, with our small group, live video chat classes, interactive setting, and inquiry-based instruction style, teachers lead kids through an enlightening process of creating, critical thinking, problem solving, and mastering computational thinking skills. Experience the best scratch coding course for kids and see the difference!  Registration closes 2 days prior to start date.  Zoom link will be sent out prior to the first class.

Levels 3 & 4

This unit covers the most advanced programming concepts that Scratch has to offer such as list/array, defining your own blocks (functions), and complex interactions between different game elements via messaging & cloning. We continue the cadence of the 1 fun project per session, even though projects are becoming more complex. Class time focuses on learning new coding concepts as well as how to construct steps to build more complex projects. In order to complete each project, students will typically need to spend 1-2 hours outside of class to finish all the details.  Registration closes 2 days prior to start date.  Zoom link will be sent out prior to the first class.
