The curriculum

In the DIGITAL CREATIVITY section, teachers and students will go through a lot of fun and educative lessons, here are some examples:

“The VR race (v.1)”

In this lesson, students will learn about various Scratch techniques such as using the backpack to save and reuse code, understanding the X and Y axes for positioning objects on the screen, programming with position conditions (X and Y), and using an IF/THEN/ELSE block. They will apply these techniques to create a game called "The VR race (V.1)" where they will animate a sprite as a game background and program it to move based on user input. By the end of the lesson, students will have gained practical knowledge in Scratch programming and game design.

“The VR race (v.2)”

In this course, students will continue to work with Scratch programming techniques, specifically focusing on the X and Y axes and adding complex programming blocks. The project will involve creating a video game that includes multiple cars and backgrounds, with a focus on developing logical sequences of actions and cause-effect relationships. The lesson will also emphasize the importance of game layers and how to add traffic to the road. Additionally, students will learn how to create the illusion of depth in their game and use the IF-THEN-ELSE block to prevent the car from touching the grass. They will also program the car to bounce back when it comes in contact with the grass. Overall, students will gain practical experience in Scratch programming and game design.

“Master of controllers”

In this lesson, students will learn about the history and function of gaming consoles and use that knowledge to create their own controllers. They will use Scratch programming techniques such as X and Y positioning, key-pressed events, forever loops, and IF-THEN statements to move a sprite on the screen. They will then build their own controller using simple materials and connect it to Scratch to control their game. By the end of the lesson, students will have gained practical experience in Scratch programming and hardware connections, as well as a deeper understanding of gaming technology and its evolution over time.

“My own creation”

In this lesson, students will learn about various types of controllers and input devices used in gaming, such as joysticks, accelerometers, and tilt sensors. They will then use this knowledge to design and build their own custom controller, using materials and tools of their choice. They will also learn how to connect their controller to Scratch and use it to control their game. Throughout the process, students will develop their creativity, problem-solving skills, and ability to research and implement new ideas. Additionally, they will learn how to give constructive feedback and evaluate the effectiveness of their own and others' designs.

“The maze video game (v.1)”

In this lesson, students will learn about the overlap between different disciplines such as programming and robotics. They will create a maze video game and learn to paint a more complicated sprite or object than before. Additionally, they will learn to use the 'costumes' tab of their sprite or object more effectively.

About Digital Creativity

The Digital Creativity Planet is the confluence point of all the other planets in galactIQ. Here we unite what we have learned on the rest of the planets and mix it so that your students are able to understand, internalize and use their new skills in more interactive and creative projects.

The goal of the lessons on this planet is to give you and your students an even greater opportunity to expand your creative horizons, to explore variants in terms of programming, research and understanding of the online medium.

Systems integration

Another characteristic of this curricular path is the integration of different technological platforms with which we have already worked. GalactIQ will propose, for example, projects in which your students integrate a joystick made with LEGO WeDo 2.0. with their own video game created in Scratch.

The integration of different platforms is essential in understanding the technological environment and this planet will show them how Bluetooth technology works, iframes in web development and many other mix-and-match tools.

  • "A practical approach with a lot of creativity ..."

    My kids attended the galactIQ Academy for more than two years. During this period, Diego and Gabriel learned many cool things such as programming with Scratch, creating websites with Javascript and HTML, programming Lego based robots, among others. 

    The staff are kind, professional and always willing to help. The approach is hands on with a lot of creativity involved. It was a very pleasant and rewarding experience for my kids. I strongly recommended it for all kids (and adults) who want to develop programming and robotics skills while applying their creativity and enjoying an entertaining learning environment.

  • Simple and effective

    "The step by step construction and coding instructions on galatIQ were simple and effective, ensuring student success regardless of their ability.  Along with the instructions, the online tutorials kept students engaged and encouraged them to grow in confidence over the course of the week.  The students particularly were inspired to be ambitious with their designs; creating unique and innovative robots. Overall, it is a brilliant experience!"

  • Impressive!

    "The video game development episodes are broken down into manageable steps, which allowed all the children in my class to develop a functioning, playable game. What really impressed me though, were the opportunities to experiment with the code; allowing my class to create a truly unique game. I can’t believe how quick we went from zero to hero!"

  • "...the lesson was so well scaffolded..."

    We used the first episode in the robotics series and our students thoroughly enjoyed the lesson.  The instructions were comprehensive for both the students and the teachers and the children could follow them to build their individual rover and were thrilled to see that the commands they set made the rover move.  As teachers, we valued the fact that the lesson was so well scaffolded and it included opportunities for discussion as well as for practising digital skills.  We can see the potential of this educational solution and how it could complement a primary school’s curriculum.

  • A fantastic tool for teachers

    "Galactiq is a fantastic tool for teachers. It helps manage the flow of the lesson, get an overview of how students are doing, encourages student participation and collaboration. It is very comfortable to teach using Galactiq!"

  • It's easy and fun

    "Galactiq is the perfect way to learn and teach coding and robotics to younger kids, even when having minimal to no coding experience yourself. Before each class, I go over today's lesson to gain an understanding of today's targets and goals. With hands-on information solely available for teachers, you can use Galactiq as a manual to learn everything needed to teach the class."

Media Literacy

Behaviour, safety and understanding
A 'must' for all kids in primary schools. Students will learn to recognise the complex mechanisms of the online environment they grow surrounded with. Through debating and investigating your class will fully understand the online world.


Learning engineering is key
By teaching engineering and robotics to kids at an early age, you are furnishing them with a foundational skill set that could become essential to them in the future.

Game Development

Plan, design, develop and test
The video game creation process includes planning, designing, programming, testing, and launching a game. A complete digital creative process that reinforces the confidence and programming skills of your students.

Web Development

Programming languages ​​from an early age
Programming languages are part of a strong and smart education for the new generations. Javascript, CSS, HTML or Python are easy to teach and learn thanks to the galactIQ educational method.
