We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Description :

This Halloween join Dan for some spooky Scratch coding to make your very own version of Spooky Pong, or Spong as we call it!

This is a really fun workshop that needs nothing more than a web browser, a Zoom account and an internet connection.  You don't need any previous coding experience and the workshop is staged so that everyone can make the core game, and those that fancy a bit more challenge and a deeper look into how games are made can stick around.

There will be plenty of opportunities along the way to ask questions, and we will be going at a steady pace so that everyone has the time to make something they can be proud of.

The workshop starts at 11am GMT, and will last around 2 hours. You will be able to ask questions during the session if needed, and there will be a short break halfway through.

You're welcome to have a grown-up take part with you to help, if you like!

One ticket permits your whole family to take part on one device.

This session is aimed at children, and recommended for those over 7.

  • This is a ticket for a digital event only.

  • You will receive the Zoom room ID and password shortly before the event. 

  • You will need a computer with a good internet connection, and a login for Zoom.

  • The workshop starts at the time stated, and the Zoom room will open 10 minutes beforehand. We can’t wait for latecomers!

  • Booking will close 1 hour before the event to allow time to distribute the information needed.

  • You will be joining with your mic muted. You do not need to enable your camera if you don't want to.

  • You are welcome to ask questions, but please be respectful of others and do not dominate the call.

  • Our moderators reserve the right to remove those who do not comply with our code of conduct, which will be distributed with the meeting information.

  • These sessions will not be recorded.
