Get inventive with circuitry and coding and create your own custom controller to play in Electric City’s ready made arcade.
The Electric Citizens Summer Labs are the perfect summer activity for 9 – 13 year olds of all levels of experience and they are really fun! Whether you have used any of this tech before or not, this summer lab will guide you through a dynamic workshop led by by digital maker Katy Marshall, giving you the skills to create projects and help build Electric City.
In this lab, you will learn how to build a custom game controller using a Makey Makey kit. This involves putting the digital components together and create coding to deliver your project.
This is a 2.5 hour workshop beginning at 2pm and finishing at 4.30pm. Please bring a laptop with you or other suitable device to support coding.
This lab is one of a series of nine Electric Citizens Summer Labs – full list at https://www.junction.co.uk/electric-citizens
