Programming is the language of the future. Give your kids the head start they need on all things coding, and learn a thing or two yourself.

This course is also suitable for absolute beginners who just happen to be adults!

In this course, young Joshua will be taking Dr Craig through how to create a game in Scratch. There will be cats running around, balls flying everywhere and dragons breathing fire and racing across your screen.

This is a unique approach to course creation and shows how much we all have to learn from the younger generation, for whom this is all second nature. Equally for young children want to learn to code, they will see that they should have the confidence to do it, just as Joshua does in these lectures.
