For the second of our two Easter school holiday workshops at the St Matthews Centre we want you to make a self portrait out of everyday materials like foil, play-doh, and ordinary pencil lead that happen to be ‘conductive’, meaning they can be used to conduct tiny amounts of electricity.
We’ll be using the Makey Makey – a special device that turns those conductive materials into computer controllers – so you can use your portraits to interact with a giant digital face made in Scratch, a children’s computer language.
This is a free, drop-in workshop so no booking is required. Best for children aged 3 – 9. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
In partnership with St Matthews Big Local and Leicester Neighbourhood Services.
