The world is filled with tiny textures, miniscule patterns, and intricate detail that the naked eye simply can’t appreciate. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll get to zoom in on the world around you to take a much closer look at everything from insects, to leaves, and even your own skin! We’ll wrap up by practicing an art form that takes advantage of your brain’s inability to see these little details.

Scratch Day Camp
Saturday, August 26, 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Have you ever wanted to create your very own computer game, but didn't know where to start? This workshop will introduce you to an amazing new computer programming language called SCRATCH, designed by educators at MIT to teach kids how to program! We will start by learning how to think like a programmer, and finish by making our very own computer games. Best of all, you'll be able to access your game from home (and even create new games) for free! Participants are asked to bring a peanut-free sack lunch; all other materials are provided. Space is limited so register early.
