Visual programming
A course for kids aged 9-10
The children learn programming basics in Scratch, a language designed for kids. Our students create simple projects, from basic animations to real games and cartoons.
We study
We play
We create
We teach students to understand the logic behind coding without complicated programming languages. The kids get to develop their own programs in Scratch.
Programming basics
Students pass through the full cycle of creative project development they'll use as adults: from initial ideas and plans to working in a team and presentations
First steps in IT
Our students put together at least 20 projects, including an animated calling card, a cartoon with voiceover and a game with multiple levels and obstacles
A project portfolio
Every class
is a new adventure
What our classes are like
Students on our courses are astro cadets who will need to program robots and send them on an expedition to Mars. Every task must be completed for the mission to succeed!
We code,
and bring dreams to life
A project-based approach
The course is made up of 5 modules. The kids present a project at the end of each module. A future environmental campaigner can set up an online competition to recycle trash, a CS:GO fan can create their own version of the game, and a budding polyglot can make their own training program to help them learn a foreign language.
Your child will learn to
To develop algorithms using sequences, operators and loops
To check their own and other students' programs and correct errors, like a real tester
To be part of a team: they'll distribute tasks and take responsibility for their job
To create their own projects and talk about them in interesting ways – what this part's for, why it's needed and how it works
Length: 1 academic year
Studying takes place on weekdays after school or at the weekends
A class lasts for 90 minutes with a break in the middle

Find an answer to your question
Who is this course appropriate for?
Boys and girls aged 9-10 who show an interest in modern technology, gadgets or computer games, dream about learning to code, or who just have a creative side to their personality. No special skills, experience of coding or technical mindset are required. And there's no need for top grades in math – we teach them everything
Who developed the programming course?
The curriculums for all of our courses are developed by a team of 30 professional teachers with backgrounds in pedagogy and psychology. Our leading teachers have PhDs and international experience of working on technology projects and in schools. They regularly update our existing courses, taking onboard the latest trends in IT, education and children's lives.
What will my kid need for their classes?
Algorithmics schools are fully equipped with everything your child will need for comfortable and effective learning. Planning to learn online? All you need is a stable internet connection, a PC or laptop with Windows 7/Mac OS X version 10.10 or above, and headphones plus a microphone if desired. Classes take place on the Algorithmics learning platform. You don't need to download any programs.
Where can I take a look at your lesson timetable?
Send us a study request and our consultant will soon contact you. They'll help you pick a group with a schedule that works for you, and reserve a place for you. Our timetable is flexible – we adapt to the needs of parents and students.
What should I do if my child misses a class?
You can always find the material they missed on our platform, and you can ask the teacher any remaining questions you have. If you have a lot of questions, the teacher will arrange an additional, personal lesson for them, so that they don't fall behind the rest of their group.
Will by child receive a certificate when they complete their course?
Yes, all of our graduates receive an electronic certificate confirming that they've developed their knowledge and skills with Algorithmics.
How much do classes cost at your school?
Send us a study request and our consultant will soon contact you. They'll calculate the total cost of your chosen course. The price depends on the format (online or offline) and the package (between 4 and 32 classes) that you choose, as well as any discounts you may be eligible for or which we currently offer.
