Coding in Scratch is a fun way to introduce kids to the world of programming. Scratch is a block coding language with visual appeal for kids. It supports a lot of the functions of the professional coding languages without the need to write text based coding.
“Scratch is a programming language and an online community where children can program and share interactive media such as stories, games, and animation with people from all over the world. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically. Scratch is designed and maintained by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab.”

These workshops are held via live Zoom or similar conferencing software. All our instructors are local BC Engineers.
What’s a Typical Workshop like?
