Scratch + MaKey MaKey Workshop for children – March 2013

16/03/2013 – 17/03/2013
10:00 am – 4:00 pm


Scratch is a programming environment that is easy to use and created with children in mind. Create and share your own interactive stories, games, music and art! 

MaKey MaKey is a kit that lets you turn anything into a controller. Let your imagination go wild!

Codasign in partnership with Furtherfield will be running two Scratch + MaKey MaKey weekend workshops for children and their parents at Furtherfield Gallery on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 March: a morning session with 6-9 year olds (10-12pm) and an afternoon one with 9-12 year olds (1:30-4pm).

Please book your place.

All supporting material for the workshop will be available at

What will you do and learn?

During this workshop, the children will practice using computational thinking and interactive design in creative projects through a variety of activities. The adults will even play a key role in these activities.

What do you need to already know?

You only need to have big ideas – no other experience required.

What do you need to bring?

You need to bring a laptop and an adult. The same adult can accompany multiple children. If you aren’t able to bring a laptop, just let us know by adding a note to your registration or e-mailing

What will be available during the workshop?

There will be drinks available, but you are welcome to bring along some snacks to feed your creativity.
