Scratch is a programming language for young people developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab.
Scratch makes it easy for kids to have fun while developing important problem-solving skills, learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
Saturday Kids offers Beginner’s, Intermediate and Advanced level Scratch programming classes for children of different age groups.
Imagine if you can create anything you dream of. Every artist, sculptor, and designer knows the magic of creation begins from the moment an idea takes root. Kids are chockfull of ideas, but ideas can only go so far.
Imagine what happens if we empower them with a tool they can use to turn ideas into reality?
3D modeling translates an idea into a computer aided design, before a 3D printer takes the design and prints by adding materials layer by layer to form a shape. Creating something has never been that easy. It's almost magic.
From printing your own toys, to a colourful model house shaped like a dinosaur - the only limit is your imagination.
Saturday Kids takes a design-based approach that emphasises digital creation. By making it fun and engaging, kids receive a well-rounded education in computational thinking that is more meaningful than simply playing with gadgets.
