Children’s Day Workshop – Five Little Monkeys (Ages 4-6)
Start your preschoolers on coding with our adaptation of Five Little Monkeys, inspired by the popular Nursery rhyme.

(Tablets are provided, so just come, and have a blast, parents!)

Children’s Day Workshop – Shoot the Cats! (Ages 7-12)
Who can get the highest score? In this 120-minute coding workshop, Kids get to create their very own first-person shooter game and set their own rules for the game to let their friends play. They will learn how to command characters using programming blocks in Scratch, and add variables such as score in. As “game-masters”, this workshop will provide them an insight into the life of a game developer. Laptops are provided, so do come and join us for our ultimate shoot-out!
