CodeCrafters: July 30 - August 3 9:30 - 11:30
PoetryProgrammer: July 30 - August 3 12:30 - 2:30
Two summer workshops: take one, or the other - or both!! No coding experience required. Ages 10 - adult. (Children 8 & 9 welcome when enrolled with an adult.)
9:30 - 11:30 a.m. CodeCrafters introduces simple robotics programming through machine embroidery. Learn to code in TurtleStitch as you create beautiful embroidery patterns, then watch the robotic programmable embroidery machine stitch your creation on fabric. Learn a new skill each day as you craft a project of your own design. At the end of the week, assemble your project into a small creation that can become a pillowcase, tote bag, or wall hanging. Andrea Mayr, the Austrian creator of TurtleStitch will be participating!
12:30 - 2:30 p.m. PoetryProgrammer tickles your imagination through the endless possibilities of coding strings of characters of the alphabet. Code a nonsense poem by picking words at random. Animate words, characters, and images to create ‘poems in motion’. Automatically select words from Google to create dynamic poems that are here and gone in an instant! Write a ‘poem game’ where your player interacts with words in your world to keep the poetry moving. Or… imagine something entirely new and let’s see if you can make it happen.
