Studies have shown that middle school students who are new to coding do better by starting from blocked based coding like Scratch. This compressed series of classes introduce students to all the key coding concepts in Scratch (a coding tool developed by MIT) in just 8 sessions, and ready them to more advanced computer science courses.

Unlike many coding classes where kids are handed a sheet of paper and asked to follow instructions, with our small class, 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. Experience it and see the differences!

Accelerated Scratch 1
Accelerated Scratch 1
  • Grades 6-9

    Max Enrollment Per Class: 6 Students

  • This class covers most of the foundational computer science and coding concepts Scratch has, such as loop, conditional, variables, and sensing. Students deliver a project in each session ranging from animations, games, to graphics design and storytelling, etc. Students will be challenged to be creative and solving tough problems while learning the deeper computer science concepts.
  • $129 (USD) for 4 sessions

    50 minutes per session

  • Prerequisites: Students need to have taken Scratch Ninja 1 or have at least 10 hours of Scratch coding experiences.
Accelerated Scratch 2
Accelerated Scratch 2
  • Grades 6-9

    Max Enrollment Per Class: 6 Students

  • 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 continue to explore cool features Scratch has to offer such as cloning. Students will work on a new relatively complex project in each session including animations, games, and storytelling, etc. As with all of our classes, there will be lots of focuses placed on creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and fun!

Accelerated Scratch 3 (Advanced)
Accelerated Scratch 3 (Advanced)
  • Grades 6-9

    Max Enrollment Per Class: 6 Students

  • During the culminating class of the Accelerated Scratch coding series, we will combine all the coding concepts and Scratch features into building very complex, advanced Scratch projects. Students will practice implementing all tools from Accelerated Scratch 1 & 2 and have the option to build their own unique game with guidance from the teacher.
