Junior Game Developer using Scratch

About the Programme

The Junior Game Developer programme is developed by Nullspace, originally designed for Singapore schools under Code for Fun (CFF) initiative and Computer Enrichment Programme (CEP) for Gifted Education Programme (GEP) schools.

More than a scratch coding class, the programme is designed to encourage logical thinking and problem solving skills. Students will be confronted with a game project or problem to tackle every session.

There is a total of 40 hours of hands-on coursework spread over 4 levels. Lessons are conducted using the Scratch 3.0 software developed by MIT Media Lab.
