Online Scratch programming course for children 7-14 years old – a successful start

The world has been taken over by IT technologies. If the child reaches for the computer – do not interfere, but correct the motion vector. Show why you really need a computer, teach the basics of programming and get started.

SCRATCH – what is it?

Scratch is a programming language for children that allows you to create animated and interactive games, presentations, websites and applications for smartphones. Visually, Scratch resembles a game with Lego, so it’s simple and straightforward. Ideal as a first programming language.

Why SCRATCH?

Learning programming languages is not an easy task for an adult, what can we say about children, for whom commands and algorithms are something incomprehensible to the mind. The great minds of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) have developed visual software, programming in which is carried out using colored blocks. This is the perfect software to start learning how to program.

What is the learning outcome?

The child will learn the basics of Scratch programming, learn what algorithms, variables, loops, sprites are and much more.

As a result, your child will be able to:

  • create applications for smartphones;
  • programming browser games;
  • solve software and mathematical problems.

During the training, the child will create more than one own project.

Scratch programming also contributes to the development of logical and abstract thinking, improves memory, imagination and communication skills.

Take the first step towards programming and getting a promising and highly paid profession in the future.

Training is individual, one-on-one with a teacher. 100% of the time only to your child.

The first lesson is free! Show your child that programming is cooler than playing!


SCRATCH TRAINING PROGRAM

Introduction to the Scratch programming language. acc

Find out why it’s good to start learning programming with Scratch;
Let’s see what programs can be created on it.

Movement towards the goal. acc

Let’s create our first program and get acquainted with the first logical constructions and loops.

Conditional statements and loops. acc

Let’s take a closer look at how we can use conditions in our program.

Variables. acc

Learn what variables are and how they are used in programming;
Let’s understand what data types are.

Arrays and lists. acc

There are ice massifs, forests, and there are arrays in programming. What is common between them, and how they differ – we will study in this lesson. At the same time, we will refresh the cycles, they will be very useful to us in this lesson.

Functions / procedures. acc

Although Scratch is a simple language, it allows you to learn the fundamental concepts in programming.

Sprites. acc

Let’s find out what sprites are and why it is not related to lemonade.

Vector and raster graphics. acc

Let’s understand the differences between vector and raster graphics, learn how pictures are created in vector and raster format. Let’s learn how to use it in our projects.

Traffic. acc

Movement is the basis of life, and the basis of how programs are created in Scratch.

Developments. acc

There are events such as birthdays, weddings. And there are events in our programs when we press something on the keyboard or mouse. Find out how we can react to these events to make our games more interesting.

Operators and variables. acc

Operators and variables in programming languages are like the letters A and B in the alphabet, without them nothing would have happened.

Project finalization acc

Details about the course

Scratch programming is a great way for every child to take their first, confident step into the modern world of computer technology. The visual programming language Scratch is practically no different from a computer game, which attracts little gamers – future programmers.
This programming language was created in 2007, and it is based on working with graphic objects – colored blocks. Therefore, it is considered an excellent tool for beginner programmers.
Although simple and easy to learn, Scratch is great at developing logical thinking and helping to master the basic principles of programming needed to learn more complex languages.
Using Scratch, you can create simple video games, program cartoon plots, and make colorful presentations. The program does not contain complex language codes, but colorful blocks are used instead. Such a visual accent motivates children to further master computer technologies and gives joy from the first success in programming.

How is the program built?

The visual programming course is built in the form of a game – the most convenient and acceptable format for each child. During the learning process, young programmers gradually get acquainted with the basic concepts of the Scratch visual environment and immediately put their knowledge into practice. In the first online lessons, children learn the rules of using a computer, learn how to move blocks and learn the following actions:

  • using simple algorithms, the guys create their first games in the Scratch environment;
  • schoolchildren get acquainted with the functions of each block and learn how to apply them correctly;
  • to consolidate the results, the guys receive individual tasks for creating games;
  • within the framework of online courses, children get acquainted with the concepts of a variable, algorithms, conditions.

Scratch develops logical thinking in schoolchildren, teaches them to think through strategies for solving problems, teaches them to see several solutions. The visual, game environment clearly convinces the child that the programming process is exciting, interesting and fun. With the help of the Scratch program, the children independently create games, their characters, experiment with images, audio content, and animation.

Advantages and features of the Scratch language

The Scratch environment was created by analogy with the famous Lego constructors. It is based on the principle of using colored blocks. Therefore, classes remind the child of his favorite game and make the process even more exciting, but already more or less familiar. As if playing with a children’s Lego constructor, the child takes the first steps in mastering computer technology:

  • in Scratch, programs are created from multi-colored bricks-blocks: they do not need to be written in the form of codes;
  • to simplify the programming process and visualize the results, the bricks are visually highlighted;
  • any changes to the program can be made online and you can immediately see what they give and how they work;
  • the more logical chains and multi-colored blocks a small Scratch programmer will use, the more effective the result will be.

The program allows the student to freely and creatively handle the visual environment: modify objects, establish a connection between them, experiment with commands. It is with this simple and understandable Scratch program that you should start an exciting journey into the world of programming. Enroll your child in our school so that his current passion for computer technology will bring brilliant achievements in the future.
