Grades 3 - 5 Exploring the world of Programming

Fundamentals of Programming, Logical thinking and developing Stories/Games with Scratch.

This application is used extensively in schools in the US and Europe to teach basic concepts of programming to young students from Grade 3 to 7. Scratch is a great way to introduce your kids  to the world of programming and logic development. It also teaches design skills as the animation/game has to play out on the screen as naturally and artistically as possible. It is a precursor to actual game development using tools such as Game Maker.

Primary Objectives: Create interest in kids to appreciate a programmed environment.

Create interest in kids towards programming.

Create an awareness of different commands to perform different tasks.

Create a sense of ownership in kids towards their projects. This rarely comes if you keep doing small programs that others give you. A project based scenario works better in creating ownership.
