Scratch Coding Game – Let's get  coding!

The popular Scratch Coding project for Years 3 and above, produced in collaboration with Code Club Australia powered by the Telstra Foundation is back in 2024.

What is scratch programming?
Scratch Programming is a block-based visual coding language used to teach coding to primary-aged students in a simple, fun way. It’s easily accessible and free to use on scratch.mit.edu.

Help your students be a coding electricity safety whizz!
Our scratch project is aligned to the Digital Technologies curriculum. It is designed to be delivered in a 45-minute lesson and will help students create an interactive game on electricity safety. Teachers can use the step-by-step lesson guide with key curriculum outcomes and a starter project already developed in Scratch.
