Creative Quarter




Creative Quarter on 28 November 2014 provides an opportunity for 13-19 year olds to take part in free workshops, talks and drop-in events, and meet professional artists, designers and scientists - as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students - across nine different organisations along and around Exhibition Road.

Organised by the Exhibition Road Cultural Group, and now in its ninth year, this one-day event gives access to some of the latest developments in the creative industries, as well as an overview of different education and career pathways young people can follow.

See the full programme.

Here's what's on offer at the Science Museum:

Code Builder

Think - build - create!

This dynamic workshop explores the wonder and potential of computer programming through a series of practical experiments with mechanical kit.

Students will use basic coding language to devise and input procedures, test them, rework them and see the results in action.

The session encourages development of logic and computational thinking skills, as well as exploring the interaction between hardware and software.

Before or after the workshop, allow time to explore our new Information Age gallery, telling the story of how our lives have been transformed by information and communication technologies over the last 200 years.

Pre-booking is required: call us on 020 7942 4777.
