Course Information

Keep young minds engaged by learning Scratch, a programming language that was developed at MIT. It is a fun way for kids to start their coding journey (a vital future skill!) and be exposed to new ways of experiencing the world.  

 

But, as the saying goes: “All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy”. Scratch operates like a game and when kids are playing, they learn faster. It uses colorful animation to help illustrate difficult concepts and opens a door to the wonderful world of code. Using blocks to code, your child will enhance their visual literacy. Throughout the course, they will create fun projects by dragging and dropping built-in blocks of code, which will help them implement the internal logic and structure of programming. Working on projects like this, children will learn how to communicate their ideas, solve problems and how to interact as part of a team.  

 

Part A consists of 24 lessons (each 1 hour long). 16 hours will be dedicated to practical classes where our instructor will guide your child through the basics of Scratch. There will also be 8 hours of working sessions – these are classes where the instructor helps the kids with their projects to ensure that everyone is on the same level. Part A covers the basics of coding and contains several important aspects that will be built upon in Part B of the course.

Student testimonials

Kids have fun learning online, creating and innovating with us. Don't take our word for it - listen to our students' experience!

Course Curriculum

Students will get to know the learning environment. They will start by creating simple stories involving no more than one character and gradually progress to programming advanced games that combine multiple characters, commands and design tools.

Learning environment

What is Scratch?

What is Scratch?

Scratch is a popular web-based visual development environment, allowing children to create animation, games and music by using drag-and-drop component blocks that are actually units of code. Providing multiple choices of characters, backgrounds and design tools, Scratch invites kids to create interest-based projects, share and discuss them in the online community.

Projects

Hippo Painter

Hippo PainterStudents will be using scratch pen tools. They will be introduced to the pen extension, learn about sensors, and will practice if-then-else conditions

Car Race

Car Race Students will create an advanced game by using and implementing all the tools they have acquired including Scratch design tools, conditions, variables, sensors and much more.

Math Quiz

Math Quiz Students will work on a project that combines random questions, gathering user data and adding animation features to the characters.

Tiny Tank

Tiny Tank Students will write a full script for a character that's made up of two characters. The character is a two-part tank. The challenge is to coordinate the tank's movement and direction using its two parts.

TekkieUni teaching team

TekkieUni’s teachers are highly experienced in teaching coding for children. They are the heart of the class, teaching online with enthusiasm, encouraging participation and happy to answer every child’s question.

How we make it work

TekkieUni specializes in operating live-online sessions with full real-time interaction guided by an experienced and attentive teacher, because we believe that with a little help every child who wants to learn – can!

  • Learning together

    Learning is all about connecting. That's why we use a video conference software allowing the small size group of children to get to know each other and their teacher. The teacher uses a shared screen option so everyone can see what they are doing on their desktop, and kids can fully participate in the lesson by using the microphone or the chat.
  • Hands-on experience

    In addition to the weekly live lessons, students are invited to join a live weekly Q&A session with a teacher present in class. The session is dedicated to provide personal assistance with students' projects, exercises and questions. All the live lessons and practice sessions are automatically recorded and available for students during the course.
  • Project-Based Learning

    Students learn by doing and work on interest-based projects, which create a fun class dynamics where we don't present the answers but look for them together.
