Our first Scratch program for Eleven Plus pupils starts on Saturday. Scratch comes from the MIT – long known as one of the world’s top universities. The course will cover getting familiar with the Scratch environment, working on some simple projects and then, we hope, branching out into projects where elements of eleven plus work are developed.
Scratch will help children to program sound and movement. They will meet logic and sprites. The children will also be able to share their projects over the internet. Surely learning how to debug an application is a vital part of learning?
If you are at all in doubt of the value of learning to program and code take a look at this wonderful video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKIu9yen5nc&feature=youtu.be
