Karaoke Coding! Rock On! - New for Summer 2018

We'll use portable microphones and free coding software to inspire a new generation of programmers and sound engineers. In this workshop, kids will be introduced to coding concepts and basic sound design using simple programs to record / modify their voices and design a beat box. The easy-to-use drag-and-drop block codes let kids create interactive animations and sounds. By the end of the session, kids will have learned how to making their very own beat box!

 (This is a 1 ½ hour session, age 11 and above).

The Rhode Island Computer Museum will present a Workshop call “Make Your Own Video Game”.  This is a great chance to put down your controllers and take time to learn interactive software titled “Scratch” and create your own “video game” sample.  Presented by our learning team, the program will also include an exhibit on “Historic Video Games”. The exhibit aims to explain the impact of Early Video Games and then teach the MIT developed youth program “Scratch”.  Scratch is a computer program developed to teach software coding and allows you can create your own “video game” sample. The workshop aims to explain how early video games were made and give students new skills to develop their own games.

Introduction  toRaspberry Pi Basics 

This workshop is for anyone that wants to learn about the Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi® is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools. The Raspberry Pi computer is a miniature ARM (phone) based PC which can do many of the things a desktop PC can do like word-processing, games or playing back High-Definition video.  We will put together basic component electrical circuits; learn about input and output, basic python programming concepts and practices. The concepts covered in workshop are using a breadboard,   Sonic Pi, programming environment basics.  



Geek out at Rhode Island Computer Museum’s Learning Lab! We will discuss the Atari computer and take apart some retro machines.  The Learning Lab is located at “The Meadows Professional Office Park 1130 Ten Road, North Kingstown Rhode Island.  Suite D103A, the last building on the lower lot.
