Scratch Coding Workshops for Kids: Learn to Code Games! | Ages 7 - 10+ | Sunday Afternoon


At Epping North Public School, we run Scratch Coding Workshops for Kids, great for Beginners to Advanced Scratch coders, to learn computer concepts and code games to play, and not just play them!

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

Your 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.


Importance of Coding / Programming

Computer programming or coding is a crucial skill every child should be learning.

We use computers to solve problems, play games, help us to work more effectively, perform repetitive tasks, store and recall information, create something new, and connect with our friends and the world.

Understanding how to code is empowering!

Everyone can learn to code - it’s just like solving a puzzle or a riddle.

Learn to code like a real programmer using text-based language!




"My son just loves it!. These are a wonderful set of coding courses for kids. The children are challenged, learn the fundamentals of coding different platforms, come hom bubbling and wanting to do more away from class. The key part of any review is would he go again? Well, he's on his third course. Say no more!' - John, Parent


"Hi Jenny, Zimo loves the computer class and will definitely continue next term." - Yu, Parent


"Thanks Jenny. Anna has looooved her course!" - Tanya, Parent




Why kids should learn to code

Coding is fun!

Technology is becoming a part of everyday life. Every company, organisation and cause can benefit from technology. There are apps to help you buy, give, join, play, volunteer, connect, share - just about anything you can imagine.

Instead of just playing games, get kids to make their own game. They can create their own phone app!

With coding, you can bring to an idea to life by programming it on a computer.

Every program, game, system or app you know was coded using the same programming building blocks like Python which you’ll learn.

When you program, you are taking an active role in technology - you’re not just having fun, you’re making something fun!

Coding is a Valuable Job Skill

Coding is the skill of the 21st century. Jobs today require more problem-solving ability than ever before, and more and more careers involve technology as an integral requirement.

People who can program - and thus solve problems quickly and effectively - are highly valued in today’s world, and they get to do interesting, fulfilling work.

If you can code, you can solve problems.

Problem solvers have the power to make the world a better place!
