Why coding?

Scratch, Minecraft and JavaScript are already in Sydney Programming School

With our new courses coming this term it’s funnier than ever for students to start coding. Kids from Y2 to Y9 will develop their programming skills while creating their computer games and projects. Scratch, Minecraft and JavaScript are already in Sydney Programming School.

We believe that the best way to learn programming is to create. This is why our students start to code from the very first minute of the lesson.

Art and Computer Programming for kids

What a great mixture of old and new. We are so lucky to have our holiday workshops in The Mosman Art Gallery, which in its former life used to be Methodist Church built in 1915.

Our students were surrounded by all that beauty of original architecture while creating their very first computer projects. On top of that, students were taken for a tour through the Gallery and saw the great pieces of art exhibited in the Gallery. In other words, kids were given a chance to get inspiration for their programming projects from everywhere. Some of the kids even started pretending as if they were in Hogwarts.

Not surprisingly that by the end of the workshop almost all students delivered very creative and amazing projects.
