Take the Leap – Beyond Computers

Burnie LINC TAS Burnie

Come and learn how to have fun with technology.

We will start off learning how to play with tablets and iPads and slowly work our way up to using technology to see beyond 2 dimensional pictures with  augmented reality, virtual reality cardboard goggles, 360 videos and cameras. Then we can get creative with some simple coding – making an online greeting card using Scratch and finishing with you learning how to drive and program Sprk and Edison robots.

The time will fly and you wont believe how much fun technology can be. Come and see for yourself.

This session is being delivered by TasTAFE North West DigiLabs.
