Description :


Come along to the Centre and make your own game controller!

Can you use Playdoh to create a game controller for Space Invaders?  How about using bananas for playing Minecraft?  Do this and more using the amazing Makey Makey devices.  If you don't believe it, come and see it for yourself.

This workshop is a great way to explore both electronics and game design.  It is aimed at children aged seven and up and is ideal for children at the KS2 level. Please note that all under 14's must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  If you have already booked an accompanying adult ticket for another event on this day, you do not need to book another one for this event. 

The fee is £12 for workshop participants, whether an adult or a child.  Accompanying adults are charged our standard entry fee of £8.

Although the booking is for a specific time slot, entry to the Centre is permitted all day.  The Centre is open from 10am to 5pm.

Tea, coffee and snacks will be available from our Pac Lunch Shop.
