What if you could learn, have a blast, and create something awesome and impactful – all at the same time?

Sounds impossible? Not quite. In this year-long programme, inspired by the games that have defined play and childhood through the years, we’ll use games as a lens to learn how to create fun-packed, impactful experiences with code… while having a tonne of fun along the way, of course!

Starting by building up a solid foundation of block-based programming with Scratch, we’ll begin by programming animations based on how we play today, before taking a curious and critical look at how gameplay and the games we love have evolved over the years, augmented by technology. Then, with your newfound skills and insights, you’ll apply code and design to develop an impactful game of your own!

Coding the Impossible: Foundations in Block-based Code is a progressive, year-long programme consisting of 4 modules, each comprising 8 weekly classes of 2 hours.

While kids are recommended to complete modules in sequence, we understand that schedules change; students who sign up for one module are not obliged to sign up for subsequent ones.

This course is recommended for kids ages 7-10. Kids without any experience in Scratch should start from Coding the Impossible 0. Kids who have completed Start with Scratch or Coding the Impossible 0 should begin with Coding the Impossible 1.

If you’re in doubt, we encourage you to write in to us to figure out an appropriate starting point for your child in the programme.

Each session has been designed to be progressive, therefore it’s ideal that students should complete Module 1 before moving on to Module 2 (and so on).

Scratch was designed for 7-10 year olds but is used by people of all ages. Sadly, having a 6 year old in the same class as a 10 year old may not result in the best learning environment for either student.

“When you become fluent with language, it means you can write an entry in your journal or tell a joke to someone or write a letter to a friend. And it’s similar with new technologies.”
