Learn Music through Code
Write melodies and songs without a musical orchestra by exploring two fields at once, music and code. In this program, students will learn about coding concepts such as loops, conditionals, variables and delays, while also learning about musical concepts such as notes, chords, tempo and melodies.
Build your video game with Scratch
Scratch is a platform developed and maintained by MIT media lab. It teaches the children a block based programming language, to build computational thinking and coding skills. In this program, students will develop and publish their own video games such as a whiteboard drawing app, a virtual piano, a dance show, a virtual theatre, etc.
For Age Group: 10-12 Years
Build your App with MIT App Inventor
6,140 apps are released daily on Google Play and App Store, and the students’ apps can be one of them!
