We’ve teamed up with creative technologists 2.times do to bring you a day of interactive creative digital making activities. Come along and experiment with all kinds of new and exciting digital creative technology in this fun-packed day.

Session ONE:

10:00 to 11:00 Build an Air Piano using Raspberry Pi

Using a Raspberry Pi and an ultrasonic distance sensor to create a monophonic synthesizer, played by moving your hand in front of it.

Session TWO:

11:30 to 12:30 An introduction to 3D Printing

Learn all about the exciting new technology of 3D printing, see a working 3D printer and use simple design software to create your own personalised object which will be printed for you to collect later.

Session THREE:

13:30 to 14:30 Using Scratch to talk to the outside world

Using Scratch on the popular Raspberry Pi computer, connect switches, LEDs and a distance sensor to take your Scratch project into the real world. Make your sprite move as you get closer to the screen, turn the LED on when someone walks past or use switches to control your game.

Session FOUR:

15:00 to 16:00 Sonic Pi

Use the Sonic Pi music program on a Raspberry Pi to code your own song or try changing the code for one of the examples provided. Can you change the tune while it's playing and become a live loop DJ?
