Bring out your inner rockstar with the power of engineering as you learn about circuitry and coding to make a musical instrument!

All you need are circuit boards, scratch coding and recycled materials to design and build your own musical instrument. Here you will use your laptop to program musical notes, connect to circuit boards and play your very own jam session. 

During this drop and leave program, participants will:

  • Apply engineering and design skills
  • Delve into the world of Scratch coding
  • Learn how circuits work and how to make them
  • Bring all these skills together to make an electronic musical instrument you can hold and play!

It's going to be a full day of fun, don't forget to bring a water bottle and a packed lunch.
