So many children dream about going to space – but now that dream can become a reality. Their mission? Build a colony on Mars. They’ll learn to construct and launch a space shuttle before embarking on their voyage to the Red Planet. Along the way, they’ll learn about physics, astronomy and teamwork – everything a budding astronaut needs.
Through the creation of their own cartoons and computer games, the children develop logical and algorithmic thinking using Scratch programming language

Kids will present their self-developed projects after each block. They will engage with popular science on different topics, such as physics or history to widen their horizons.
Visual programming develops a child’s imagination and teaches them to correctly set goals and search for ways to achieve them in a game form. Kids will build valuable skills needed to do most jobs like projects development from concept to implementation, creativity and teamwork.
