Course Description

The Scratch Holiday Camp is designed to teach young imaginative minds to create interactive stories, games and animation with travel as the theme. Students learn to code with Scratch, a block-based programming tool developed by the MIT Media Lab, to give young students hands-on first try on programming. Students learn key computer science concepts such as sequences, loops, conditionals and abstraction by building their own fun projects of animated stories and multimedia games. Students are encouraged and supported by professionally trained instructors to design creative games and to think about the programming processes behind the apps and games they see in daily lives.

Recommended for Ages 7-8

Course Highlights

Small Group Class

We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students’ learning. Ensuring a small class of up to 4 students only, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.

Personalized Learning

Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.

Hands-on Project-based Learning

First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.

Follow on Curriculum for Immersed Learning

What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
