You will get to:
A baker, a pirate, a dancer. The beach, the Great Wall of China, the Wild West. With green screen technology, you can be anywhere you want - the possibilities are endless. In this session, we'll 'Dream Big' - creating videos of your dream job, dream place to visit, dream person to meet. We'll use green screens and iPads to make your dreams a reality.
What can you do with a circuit pen* and paper? Light the frame for a picture of you and your bff? Design a card for Mom’s birthday? Create a miniature house with working lights? There are LOTS of ideas to explore in this session!
* What’s a circuit pen? It’s for drawing circuits with conductive ink. It’s the coolest new technology!
Would you like to try a Raspberry Pi? Make up your own computer game on a Raspberry Pi computer! With Scratch, you’ll learn the elements of game design and maybe do a little programming, too!
