Programming workshop

Hanna Neumann Building

Do you enjoy creating or listening to music? Have you always wanted to try out programming but never had the chance?

Join us for a half day workshop to learn how to create music using block coding.

These workshops have been designed for people with minimal experience in programming and some familiarity in reading sheet music. Everything will be taught from scratch, so no previous experience is required. At the end of the workshop, you'll have learnt the foundations of programming and have completed several projects.

Where: Hanna Neumann Building #145, Room 1.23 and 1.24 (view map)
When: 1-4pm, on either Thursday 8 and Friday 9 July 2021 (two sessions to choose from)
Cost: Free
Audience: Suitable for ages 13 and over. A great activity for the school holidays.

This workshop is part of an Honours project in the field of Computer Science Education looking at outreach programs to improve effectiveness in a more diverse audience.
