Maribyrnong Home Coders
While our libraries are closed Code Club has moved online.
Maribyrnong Home Coders is our new Scratch Studio where new projects to remix will appear regularly. Our Librarians, Christine, Christy and Andrew will be available to encourage and give tips on how to create fun Scratch animations, games and stories.
To join the fun, kids will need to create a free Scratch account, then follow Maribyrnong Home Coders. Haven’t done Scratch coding before? In addition to the library offerings, there’s lots of great tutorials to follow which will get kids coding in no time! We recommend beginning with Rock Band, which teaches a lot of the basics.
Other resources to help you learn Scratch Coding:
- Code Club Australia has all of the beginner modules in one place and is a great place to learn some basics.
- Scratch have their own tutorials which can teach you how to make some amazing projects.
- Raspberry Pi has even more Scratch projects for you to try.
You can share anything you create in Scratch in our Maribyrnong Home Coders studio. We’d love to see what you’ve been creating!
