The Makers Play Lab Creative Coding program offers a choice of three workshops for makers to play, design, code, and create in the first week of the April School Holidays. During the three day workshops, makers will develop problem solving skills and creative confidence as they explore advanced STEAM (Science. Technology. Engineering. Art. Maths) concepts through hands-on design and digital challenges.
Ages: 7 – 13 year olds.
The Creative Coding Program consists of three workshops, tickets are sold individually.
Workshop 1: Monday 15 April
Lego Robotics: Makers will explore scientific and engineering concepts through building, creating and coding innovative solutions to design challenges using lego robotics and visual programming software. They will work through a series of guided projects structured to ignite curiosity, helping makers develop essential communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking-skills in a fun and exciting way. Advanced coders will be offered open projects to meet their skill set.
Workshop 2: Tuesday 16 April
Game Design: Makers will explore gamification concepts through playing, designing and coding basic video games including racing, platform, launching, and more using visual programming software. Makers will learn about electronic circuit boards and conductive materials as they create their own game controller to play their games. Advanced coders will be offered open projects to meet their skill set.
Workshop 3: Wednesday 17 April
Sound Machines: Makers will explore musical notes and patterns as they compose and create an interactive sound machine using code. They will use animation, record music and use beatbox sounds to create a cardboard sound machine controlled by an electronic circuit board. Makers will learn about simple circuits and digital systems. *Makers who have completed the Makey Music Workshop before will be offered advanced project options.
Cost of each workshop: $130 per day + Eventbrite booking fee on all tickets. Creative Kids Vouchers are accepted as part payment.
