Scratch with Makey Makey
Learning to code is so much more fun with an interactive kit, like Makey-Makey. Makey-Makey is a simple Invention Kit suitable for all ages who are interested in exploring coding with the incorporation of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) in a fun and enriching manner.
During the course, your kids will be challenged to think out of the box, to program their Scratch projects together with Makey-Makey kit. They will be motivated to turn items like fruits, playdoh, and even water into fun controllers for games with Makey-Makey kit. At KidsCode, we feel accomplished if our kids love coding after the session.
