Claymation and coding for junior techs in January

Published on 6 December 2018

Children aged 7-12 can book into some entertaining technology sessions at local libraries during the school holidays. 

On Tuesday 8 January between 10am and 12 noon Turramurra Library is offering a special one-off workshop on animation for children aged 9 years and older.

This Claymation workshop will teach children how to use a storyboard and film their own stop motion animated video using an iPad.  Children who want to use their own iPad will need to download Stop Motion app before coming to the workshop.

Claymation was used to create the lovable cartoon characters Wallace & Grommit and children attending this session will come away knowing the basics of how to animate simple clay figures.

St Ives and Gordon libraries are both offering coding workshops during the January holidays for children aged 7 to 9 years old.

Using the simple Dash and Dot coding language children will learn programming concepts and send commands to control the movement of robots. No previous programming experience is required and sessions are on Wednesday 10 January at St Ives and Thursday 11 January at Gordon.

Bookings are filling fast for these junior technology sessions; find out more and book online
