Yes, our challenges are designed to be scalable for all skill levels and abilities. If your child is new to coding – they can complete our ‘Basics of Scratch’ mini-series course before tackling the main challenges. Each challenge starts with a video intro from a Zone Leader to set the scene, and challenge cards also give more support.

The Code Zone Online platform also has tutorials and mini-series guides and help blocks with tips to help users if they get stuck. And for Online + Community customers have live Zone Leader support on hand for a more personal tutorial style of session.
