Advanced coders​(students with previous Scratch experience) will enjoy the Advanced Curriculum, where each day contains a unique mix of coding challenges techniques, and hacks. Our classes are designed to be repeated as many times as desired. Each time, kids increase their coding skills, speed and proficiency.
