The block-based visual programming language is easy to navigate – kids can look forward to creating cool animation and games through guided tutorials. The course consists of five hands-on projects plus quizzes, spanning across 10 hours of lessons. After they finish the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Online course validity is 30 days.

What is Scratch 3.0

Scratch is a block-based visual programming language developed by MIT designed for children aged 7 and above. You can use it to create games, animations and even your own interactive stories. This easy drag and drop interface makes it easy for kids to learn how to code even though they are not as proficient with a keyboard yet.

Scratch 3.0 is the next generation of Scratch – designed to expand how, what, and where you can create with Scratch. It includes dozens of new sprites, a totally new sound editor, and many new programming blocks. And with Scratch 3.0, you are able to create and play projects on your tablet, in addition to your laptop or desk computer.

 

Why  learn to code with Scratch 3.0?

♦   Learning to code has become a focus in Singapore schools and Scratch is one of the most commonly used coding platform

♦   Scratch enables students to create projects that express their ideas

♦   Students can use Scratch to communicate ideas in many subject areas such as animated illustrations for Science processes, interactive games for MAth and animated poems and stories for languages

♦   With block-based visual programming, students can easily code using drag and drop so they can learn to code even before they are proficient with using the keyboard

 

Who is this for? 

This online course is suitable for children aged 7 and above who are new to coding.

Course objective

Most experts believe that coding is the most important skill for students to have in order to be successful in the 21st Century. Join us in this course as we explore Coding with Scratch 3.0. This course is designed to help students understand the fundamentals of coding. Students will learn about algorithms, loops, conditionals and much more. Best part is, each lesson is Project Based. With a total of 5 lessons, students will have created 5 projects at the end of the course.

Course outline

Students will be introduced to the Scratch 3.0 programming platform. Using blocks from the Motion, Looks and Sounds tab, students will create an animation of Scratch the Cat in the playground.

Its time for a Dance Off! In this project, students will learn about advanced Motion, Looks and Sound coding blocks. They will also learn to add a new Sprite and program for Scratch the Cat to participate in a dance-off with a rival sprite. 

Scratch the Cat scores a goal! From animations, we now advance our coding skills to tackle Events. In a program, events signal the start of a coding thread. Students will learn coding techniques to handle multiple threads of code and how to use Event blocks to add interactivity to their project.

 

Ever wanted to be a musician but lacked the instruments? Well, now is your chance to be Mozart. In this project, students will create a Happy Birthday song. Students will learn about Loops and its importance in the world of coding. Students will be able to design an interactive piano-instrument by the end of the lesson.

From animations to music creation, we now end with everyone’s favourite, game creation. In this lesson, we explore the use of If statements and conditionals. Students will put into practice, Loops and If else statements to create a simple apple catching game. At the end of the project, students would have even learnt about Sensing and how our programs can become ‘smarter’.
