Ideal for junior programmers aged 6 years to 12 years.

Rainforest Coding makes learning Scratch (and Python) coding fun and intuitive and provides an effective approach for children to achieve in this area of the curriculum. As children try and save the rainforest in a world of scientists, robots and villains, they will be enhancing their problem-solving skills as they work their way through the structured activities.

Rainforest Coding Introduces Scratch coding from the very beginning in a logical and sequential manner.

It includes 23 carefully structured activities, starting with basic Scratch concepts and moving on to more advanced techniques such as making blocks, cloning, broadcasting, conditional statements, variables and operators.

Links to real Scratch projects are included in several of the modules.

Features

All the activities include animated, interactive explanations, allowing students to work independently for a learner led experience. Only by learning enough CodingĀ  techniques can the students save the rainforest in an adventure involving scientists, robots and villains.

Benefits

They are also presented in our own controlled Scratch (and Python) environments. This isolates the techniques being introduced and ultimately ensures all students will succeed, giving them the confidence that they CAN code.

Regular use of Rainforest Coding also:

  • Enhances creativity

  • Develops independent thinking

  • Develops logical thinking skills

  • Tests problem-solving skills

  • Encourages exploration

  • Encourages working collaboratively when used in small groups

  • Boosts computational thinking and coding skills that will help them when they later progress onto real-world programming

  • Now with a Python Module… “Escape from Robot City!”
