Creative Computing for Seniors workshop (using “Scratch”)

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

22 Aug 2021 Once Only Event

If you’re over 55 and inspired by creativity (and can use a computer keyboard and mouse) then this free workshop is for you.

In a relaxed setting we’ll learn how to get started with Scratch, an incredible self-expression system that’s used by more than 70 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, is great for the brain, and is way more fun than crosswords or sudoku. It could also be the start of forming a local “Scratch community” and meeting new people. And refreshments will be provided.

Come and join us for this stimulating and enjoyable workshop! For enquiries, phone 0402 050 852.

This Inspiring Australia initiative is supported by the Australian Government as part of National Science Week.
