A special workshop for children ( 8 to 12 years old) accompanied by their parents, grandparents, uncles or older siblings …
A practical programming workshop in which children enter the world of computing learning how to program to make a living robot: it blinks , moves its arms and feel when someone approaches. Children , along with an adult of their family, will learn fundamental programming concepts using SCRATCH, a graphical programming language developed at the MIT Media Lab to control the hardware ( Arduino Nano ) on the SCRATCHBOARD.
O requisito para a realização da oficina neste nível iniciante é que a criança deve, obrigatoriamente, estar acompanhada por um adulto. Por limitações de espaço físico, pode ser feito uma inscrição somente para um adulto e uma criança.
The only requirement for the workshop at this beginner level is that the child must necessarily be accompanied by an adult. No programming knowledge is required. SCRATCH is a free software and can be used online or downloaded at: http://scratch.mit.edu.
The workshop will be held at a computer lab with computers available for all participants. Thus , it is not necessary to bring personal computers.
Interested? New workshops in 2016 will be announced via our mailinglist and our Facebook group.
