12 July 2019, 10am-4pm Powerhouse Museum Book Tickets

This is a one-day workshop.

Learn the basics of Scratch. Scratch is great for those new to coding and utilises logic programming, creative arts, and performance skills. Discover how different physical components can connect to Scratch software to develop and play classic arcade games similar to Frogger (Crossy Road) or Space Invaders.

Learners will construct a game controller using LEGO WEDO kits. LEGO WEDO includes a variety of components including bricks, tilt/motion sensors and more. All participants will leave with a greater understanding of electronic components and the basics of computer programming and logic.

No need to make lunch these holidays: pre-purchase one of our new lunch packs instead! Please note there will be no access to the cafe on site during The Lab workshops.

Please be sure to read our essential information for The Lab workshops.
