Creative Quarter




Creative Quarter - 13 November 2015 

Creative Quarter gives 13-19 year olds access to some of the latest developments in the creative industries, and provides an overview of different education and career pathways young people can follow.

Students can take part in free workshops, talks and drop-in events, and meet professional artists, designers, scientists, undergraduate and postgraduate students across nine different organisations along and around Exhibition Road. 

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.

Sessions at 11.00-12.00 and 12.45-13.45. Suitable for ages 13-16 years.

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