Scratch-A-Beat with Ask Q

This coming Saturday we will be LIVE at Te Haa o Manukau, 2 Osterley Way, Manuakau from 2:00pm - 4:00pm.

With the support of Te Haa o Manukau and Panuku Developments AKL, Ask Q will be running its first technology workshop in the event space of Haa with hopefully more to come in the future.

Our first workshop is our Scratch-A-Beat Workshop, where we work with youth to create their very own AR beat machine in Scratch, a free visual programming app.

We would love to have your child join us for a day of jamming! Click here to check out our event on Facebook and sign up now!

Programming is sometimes really hard to get into and definitely has a steep learning curve before you are able to create some really awesome stuff. What Scratch does is allow creators to easily develop and share all sort of different interactive scenes. You can create your own games or even try remake an old retro game, develop interactive stories and it even allows you to use different interfaces and hardware such as Makey Makey or SparkFun PicoBoards to interact with Scratch and anything you have in your scene. Its pretty awesome and there's so much to learn!

This workshop is a one off workshop we are hosting for free at this time but you can also enquire if you would like a workshop run in your school, organisation or community by clicking here. These workshops have been developed with youth in mind but can be used as professional development sessions for teachers and educators and community workers. They can definitely be activated at birthdays and other types of family events too.

We love sharing in technology and love creating awesome experiences and would love to work with you. If you would like to attend one of our workshops please feel free to contact us. We would love to hear from you!
