• Scratch Game Design

Starting from Scratch (Ages 7–9)

Duration: 6 hours
Workshop7 - 9 Years
16 April 2018, 10am–4pm Sydney Observatory Book Tickets

This is a one-day workshop.

Learn the basics of Scratch, a visual coding language developed by MIT. 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 such as Frogger (Crossy Road) or Space Invaders.

Learners will construct their own game controllers 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.

Digital learning programs at Sydney Observatory focus on premium learning experiences with a high facilitator to learner ratio. All courses cater for learners of differing abilities. The last half an hour of the workshop will be open for parents to view the participants’ work.

Note: This program runs at Sydney Observatory. There is no café so packed lunch is essential.
