  • In this three day interactive workshop, kids will learn about the design and programming that form the building blocks of game development and coding.

    Give your child an understanding of scripting or traditional programming, using a  visual approach to game development and design. Using the popular scratch software, this beginner's workshop will also explore game design and other approaches to game development.

    Kids will also get a chance to explore the popular game software Minecraft, completing building challenges that encourage problem solving and team based cooperative skills. Learning how to code builds confidence and creativity and provides the tools to create a world of limitless possibilities, where kids can create their own paths and solutions in their own way.

    Children must have basic computer literacy and mouse skills. Tickets must be purchased in advance. In the event of cancellation, ticket holders are notified directly and a full refund is provided.

    Children will require access to an email address to create an account to save their games.
