Game Development with MIT Scratch Jr for Kids
Initiate your Coding journey : learn to program, create games, have fun in Scratch!
‘This Scratch Jr course is designed for primary school students and it is different from any other course out there, because it is designed for young children as per their psychology, their attention span and their creative impulse.
This is NOT an outcomes based course, where students are shown how various concepts work but infact they are constantly invited to create and innovate their own programs and solutions. Every topic is not a blueprint for a predefined result but a catalyst to the artistic endeavors of the student. The end goal of this course is not the acquistion of a specific set of skills (though that will happen) but but to see coding as a new means of expressing oneself.

Scratch Junior: Playing with Code
Using a visual interface designed for young learners, ScratchJr is the latest iPad-based application developed in collaboration with MIT Media Labs. Through intuitive drag-and-drop coding blocks, students are introduced to the foundations of programming through creating simple games and animations.
Utilizing tools such as LittlebIts®, Dash & Dot® and Sphero®, students practise mathematical and programming concepts such as time, speed and conditionals. Through visual and real-world execution of their code, students start to appreciate how software interacts with hardware to develop computational thinking.
Paper Circuits like Circuit Scribe ® and Electric Dough® are circuits drawn on normal paper with drawing inks that conducts electricity. Students make creative projects and experiments to learn about electricity, circuits, and the related scientific principles behind these experiments!
Through experimenting with Smartivity ® STEM kits using fun and engaging products and designs, students develop an understanding of fundamental principles of S.T.E.M. subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
