Join the Cape Town Science Centre’s ONLINE CODING CLUB. We invite your children to find their online tribe in this exciting virtual club.
WHO SHOULD JOIN?
This club is for beginners, children who have never used SCRATCH* before or have just started using SCRATCH*. This course will whet their appetite for coding, giving a general hands-on overview of essential block-based coding. They create a cool game while laying a great foundation for coding.
WHAT MAKES THIS COURSE UNIQUE?
– LIVE LESSONS – Lessons are not pre-recorded, we will be with your child every step of the way.
– EASY PACE – The two lessons per week will include demonstrations, discussions and reviewing the weekly building blocks in order to build a playable game.

– ADDITIONAL RESOURCES – Each week you will receive two support videos or worksheets.
