FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. My child has no coding background. Would this be an issue?
No problem at all! Scratch platform is deliberately chosen as an ideal introduction to coding for absolute beginners. Kids will be using a visual, block-based editor that will get them programming in a matter of minutes. We will be focusing on the concepts of coding, not its mechanics.
2. Any minimum number of participants required?
Yes, a minimum of 6 participants is required for this course to run. Any event of cancellation will be made known to registered participants at least 1 week prior to commencement.
