National Science Week | Creative Computing for Seniors workshop (using "Scratch")

In a relaxed setting we'll learn how to get started with "Scratch", an incredible self-expression system that's used by more than 90 million men and women worldwide and lets them produce amazing, colourful, musical, moving creations just by fitting multi-coloured blocks together with the mouse. These creations may then be shared among a vast community of users, or just with family and friends, and can include interactive stories, games, animations, and lots more.

It's simple to use, costs nothing, and can be way more fun than crosswords or sudoku in helping to keep the brain young. It could also be the start of forming a local "Scratch community" and meeting new people.

Come and join us for this stimulating and enjoyable Science Week event!

Please note that this event is also available on August 13August 19, and August 20.
