This module provides a powerful learning tool for young students– using an advanced block based coding format, MIT Scratch teaches fundamental programming concepts in a much fun and engaging manner, also used in more complex languages such as Python and Java.
Budding programmers will learn these critical concepts by creating computer games and animations with interacting characters. Students will apply problem solving skills to debug programs, make customizations and bring their imaginations to life!

5:1 Ratio Guarantee
CodingZen believes in creating a personal bond with the student. We work as much as coach to the students as we are teachers and facilitators. By having a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from faculty, while learning from peers in a group setting.
We have designed our modules such that the students learn at their own pace. The curriculum of each module is level-based, meaning that every student can learn at their own appropriate pace.
Hands-on Project-based Learning
CodingZen believes in experimental learning, hands-on creation and lots of fun
Scratch: Animations & Games
Designed for imaginative young minds, this course uses Scratch, a block-based programming tool developed by the MIT Media Lab to give young students a hands-on first try at programming.
Students learn key computer science concepts such as sequences, loops, conditionals and abstraction through building their own fun projects of animated stories and multimedia games.
Guided by our team of professionally trained instructors at each step, students are encouraged to design and create creative games, and to think deeper about the programming processes powering apps and games they use daily.
Scratch: Algorithm Composing
This section provides a deep dive for students familiar with Scratch programming to solidify their understanding of key computer science concepts.
Through creating more advanced and interactive games and projects, students familiarise themselves with using concepts such as sequences, loops, conditionals, abstraction and object-oriented programming.
Systematic programming is also introduced, paving the way for more integrated learning with hardware at the higher levels.
Hardware linked programming with mBot
Following Scratch, students apply learning outcomes to programming commands for actual physical objects! Combining quick feedback and iteration programming in Scratch, students also start to understand abstract programming concepts through tangible representation from robots.
Using mBot, an Arduino-based, extensible robot kit, students create commands to follow lines, push objects, create useful LED displays and more, to practice key computer science concepts such as loops and conditionals.

Step By Step School
“My kids are very interested in games, so much so that they actually said they would like to make their own. When I heard about the game making course in CodingZen and read the excellent reviews, I knew I couldn’t miss this opportunity to give my kids a headstart in their passion. Now, all they can talk about is Scrtach and the game plan.
Thank you CodingZen!”
Kartik Sharma, Parent of Shubam Sharma
“Seeing the digital rat race that goes on, I didn’t want my daughter to be left behind, and CodingZen was definitely a good choice. They have very knowledgeable faculty who teach with great patience and leave no doubt unanswered. She started with the Game development module. She cannot wait to attend the next session, kudos to CodingZen! Now we are all interested to learn coding!”
Thank you CodingZen!”
Rahul Singh, Parent of Rohan Singh
