Instructor-led Classroom Adult Training in Singapore - Modular Fast Track Skill-Based Trainings

Scratch Programming

Scratch is a visual programming language. Developed by students at MIT, Scratch allows users to create web animations, games, and interactive stories, all without a single line of code. Originally intended for kids ages 8–16, Scratch's web-based platform is ideal for educators who want to incorporate programming in the classroom, and adult students who want to learn a visual language before progressing to code. The trainer will show how to use Scratch to create simple web projects and teach yourself basic programming concepts along the way.
