School Holiday Hopscotch Coding 1 - On iPads

Be creative, have fun and learn the skills for the future on this two day tech adventure. Your child will take their first steps to becoming creators of technology.

Why Coding?

“Everybody should learn to program, because it teaches you how to think” - Steve Jobs

Learn to code and make your own games with Hopscotch.

Hopscotch is the best way to express your imagination! Most other “learn to code” apps just make you complete boring levels with 4 “move” blocks, but in hopscotch you have the freedom to create anything, which is amazing.
Every child learns in their own way. Let them use open-ended tools to build what interests them. You’ll be thrilled to see how your child will shine.

So what is Hopscotch?

The internet age has given us no shortage of coding tutorials. There are instructional websites, games, online courses—even DIY computer kits, but Hopscotch is different. While most coding is done on computers with lines of code, Hopscotch is a visual programming language designed for mobile devices.
With Hopscotch, there’s no typing and no syntax. The language centers around blocks that you drag and drop into place to build routines. You start by picking a shape—let’s say a heart. From there, the app asks you to define what happens to that heart when a given action is performed. You can build a sequence as simple as telling the heart to change colors when you shake the phone, or you could make the command far more complex.>
