Scratch Advanced Programming

Accelerated Scratch

Fast-Paced Introductory Coding Class for Grades 5-9 - Build Games, Stories, and Animations

Book advanced scratch coding classes for kids

Studies have shown that middle school students who are new to coding do better by starting with blocked-based coding such as Scratch. This compressed series of Scratch coding classes introduces students to all of the key coding concepts in just 8 sessions, and prepares them for more advanced computer science courses. Advanced Scratch coding sets students up for success!

Unlike many coding classes where kids are handed a sheet of paper and asked to follow instructions, with our small classes' interactive setting and inquiry-based teaching style, teachers lead kids who are taking early steps in coding through an enlightening process of creating, critical thinking, problem solving, and mastering computational thinking skills. Discover the difference today!

Accelerated Scratch

Units 1 - 3
  • Grades 5-9
  • 3 Units / 12 Sessions
    55 minutes per session
  • Accelerated Scratch - Unit 1
    This class covers most of the foundational computer science and coding concepts Scratch has, such as loops, conditional, variables, and sensing. Students deliver a project in each session ranging from animations and games to graphic designs and storytelling. Students will be challenged to be creative and solve tough problems, while learning deeper computer science concepts.
  • Accelerated Scratch - Unit 2
    In this part II of the Accelerated Scratch coding series, we cover the more advanced coding concepts in Scratch, such as functions and lists, while continuing to explore cool features Scratch has to offer such as cloning. Students will work on a new relatively complex projects in each session including animations, games, and storytelling. As with all of our classes, there is lots of focus placed on creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and fun!
  • Accelerated Scratch - Unit 3
    During the culminating class of the Accelerated Scratch coding series, you will combine all of the coding concepts and Scratch features you've learned into building very complex, advanced Scratch projects. Students will practice implementing all the tools from Accelerated Scratch 1 & 2, and have the option to build their very own unique game with guidance from the instructor.
