At Codes 4 Kids you will learn how to create and program our own interactive animations using ‘Scratch’ (software made for children to learn to code at MIT). You will also be getting creative away from the screen, hacking toys apart, and recording sound effects to use in the animations.
The Information Technology curriculum now includes an important element of teaching children how to program a computer. This is a fun way to learn how to program using a Raspberry Pi credit-card-sized single board computer with all the speed and computing power of a modern computer. Using a universally adopted school based learning program called ‘Scratch’ (child friendly Open-Source software) you can use characters created in Toy Hacking to create you own sprite game characters, and use ‘Scratch’ to animate and create your own Toy Story. To see your creations blown up to monstrous dimensions your character could end up integrated into an interactive animation projection installation that will project onto a wall sized screen.
Exploring Senses would like to thank Sussex Community Foundation for funding ‘Code for Kids’ workshops. Without their assistance we would not be able to provide such interesting opportunities for children for FREE!!: )
