SCRATCHPAD

Step inside SCRATCHPAD – and step into a world of limitless possibilities. A world where creativity has no boundaries and the present becomes the future.

 

SCRATCHPAD is a new educational venture focused on helping youngsters (and the young at heart) to love, use, and create opportunities with technology – to help them develop skills that prepare them for the future and last a lifetime.

 

We believe children need to learn more than just how to use technology – they need to learn how to become creators of technology.

Theirs is a world where self-driving cars and remote control of household appliances and electronics using smart devices will soon be the norm, not the exception.

 

SCRATCHPAD is the place where this creativity happens!

 

SCRATCHPAD is the innovative space where children can become the innovators of tomorrow.

 

You can read about our program modules here, but we’d really like you to come visit us at our Auckland hub to see what a magical place SCRATCHPAD is – what a centre of creativity and fun we’ve created.

 

Please get in touch to book a time to visit and have a free trial.

PARENTS TELL US

Both our kids have really enjoyed SCRATCHPAD. Its great to find an outside school activity that they are excited about and at the same time can learn so much from. The team have provided an encouraging and positive learning environment and we know the tools they have learnt will be valuable through their senior school years and on to adulthood, for whichever career path they choose.

Parent

Pieter had a great time at SCRATCHPAD and he learned a lot. The best thing is that he came home asking to attend another class. SCRATCHPAD did a great job at helping to foster his interest in developing his programming skills and in tailoring the program to appeal to young children. You are never too young to learn to program!
