Scratch Computer Programming Workshops – 04 Feb to 25 Mar, Sundays, 3pm – 4pm

At Epping North Public School, we will be resuming our Scratch Programming Workshops, great for Beginners to Advanced Scratch coders.

If you are new to Scratch, this 8 week programme will be great for you to get to know Scratch, and start creating your own stories or designing simple interactive games.

If you are familiar with Scratch, then use this time to extend your knowledge and have fun creating games with extended Scratch script blocks and concepts.

There will be an array of different Scratch projects to create, from the basics to more advanced Scratch coding.

Kids can choose the different Scratch projects to tackle and explore, and all of the Scratch projects’ lesson plans will be available to support their creativity and exploration.
