Learn the basics of coding and creating computer instructions with Scratch!
Coding is an important skill that empowers people to express themselves creatively and understand how to solve problems with computers. With Scratch, a free visual programming tool created by MIT, it’s also very easy to learn for users of any age – including children and adults alike.
Through this course, you’ll explore the foundations of Scratch, and learn how to use its drag-and-drop system by setting up your first two coding mini-projects. Along the way, you’ll discover how to use flowcharts and coding principles to create algorithms, which are essentially instructions that computers can understand.
No matter the type of projects you want to create in the future, these Scratch fundamentals will ensure you’re prepared to build animations, games, and more with coding.
You will learn how to:
- Use Scratch’s coding blocks
- Craft computer instructions with flowcharts
- Implement algorithms with Scratch
- Understand basic screen coordinates
- Deal with repetition and instruction branches
- Move and change sprites
… and more!

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
