Easter Holiday One day Workshops 2019

3D Animation Programming

Using an innovative 3D programming environment, children will design and program their own unique 3D world or video game. Suitable for many levels of ability this software is used by professional animators and even by undergraduate students on Digital Media courses. Final productions can be saved to a wmv video format so they can be shared with friends and family.

Web Design

Children will use software specially designed for education, to create a five (plus) page website, (a fanzine online) about one of their favourite things. A game, a pop band, a theme park, sports team, fashion brand? Using a variety of multimedia features, all within a protected environment.
Developing skills in research, creativity and design: they will name it, research it, write stories for it, and add images and videos. They will also be introduced to HTML code.
Their creation will go on a real www address where they can show it off to friends and family!

Robotics/Engineering

We have a range of exciting programmable devices: BBC Micro:Bits to create simple circuits, wearable, playable technology and more, Lego© to build robots which move and react to their surroundings through sensors, and Edison© our new robot cars which read barcodes or use block programming and sensors to control movement. All of which will be a brilliant fun-packed day of making and programming, as well as nurturing skills in maths, technology and engineering.
