Join this hi-tech and hands-on camp for some imaginative fun. We’ll combine a bit of computer tech, a dash of electronics, and some good ole fashioned craft making to create an audio-visual project. Use the computer coding language Scratch and a Makey Makey kit to design an artistic object that will interact with the virtual world!
Campers have the option to either purchase their own Makey Makey kit prior to the camp or borrow one for the duration of the program. Kits are available online.
