Tom Dobbs

Our student of the month for October is Tom Dobbs.
Tom is one student that doesn't see any problem to be too big. He is always eager to learn new technologies and loves new challenges. No one will believe that this young and clever boy has already done courses in 3D printing, assembled Arduino kits, is learning new coding techniques and also writing his own mods for Minecraft. So much so that he is forcing his dad to brush up his coding skills :-). We are proud of you Tom and you truly deserve the recognition.
Congratulations and we know you will do wonders!


This month's student of the month for September is Nihar Khatri
Nihar actively participates during his regular weekly sessions here at our centre, he enjoys sharing his knowledge with everyone, and his classmates value his input and opinion . Nihar is very focused yet approaches his learning with a wonderful, curious sense of fun. His creative outlook is evident in his personal projects.
Nihar is always kind, positive and well mannered. Most definitely a deserving recipient of this award!
Congratulations to Nihar, we can’t wait to see what he is capable of in the future!


Our Student of the month for August is Daksh Jauhari. Don't be deceived by his young age. He has been developing his logical thinking to a point that he is already doing some complex stuff and writing some mean algorithms. Well done Daksh. You and other students at SCRATCHPAD time and again prove that age is no barrier when it comes to learning Coding.


This month's student of the month is Pieter. Pieter has learnt different coding techniques in very less time. He is very focused and passionate about learning different coding techniques and concepts. He is amazing, especially for his age, at understanding advanced coding techniques and explaining these concepts to others in the class if they need help with concepts Pieter already knows.
Pieter has demonstrated a good understanding and retention of coding concepts which is amazing. He works brilliantly through our Ninja Programme.
Pieter also learnt designing and creating 3D printed objects in our holiday programmes, he created a detailed key chain which he designed himself.



This month's student of the month is Savitri. Savitri works hard at our centre and from home to master all levels of her coding programme with 100% accuracy. As well as focussing her effort on her own work, Savitri is a brilliant addition to our online classroom, answering student queries and providing kind feedback and encouragement about others' progress. Savitri is so dedicated to her love of technology and SCRATCHPAD that she writes about her learning experience on her blog - having drawn and created her own ideal robot. She also chose robotics as the topic for her latest school speech, which was presented outstandingly. As well as all these amazing achievements Savitri is always kind, positive and well mannered. Most definitely a deserving recipient of this award!


This Month’s student of the Month is Marigold. We love Marigold's attitude in class - she loves learning, being on task and accomplishing self-set goals during the lesson. She also helps others on challenges she has already completed and loves looking at previews of upcoming levels for extra motivation. Goldie has also stepped up on Edmodo! She's actively answering all the quizzes after listening attentively to presentations in class and contributing fantastic answers and questions. Congratulations Goldie!


Layla Brown is our Student of the Month for April. We love Layla’s attitude toward learning new coding concepts. She’s always eager to take on challenges working on both her drag and drop and typing skills and constantly exceeds our expectations of what a 6 year old coder is capable of!
