Creative computing for seniors workshop (using “Scratch”)

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 90 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 everything will be provided in the workshop, including refreshments, lunch, giveaways and prizes.

Come and join us for this stimulating and enjoyable National Science Week event. For enquiries, phone 0402 050 852.
