Event Details

If you're 50 or over and inspired by creativity (and can use a computer keyboard and mouse) then this workshop is for you!

In a relaxed setting we'll learn how to get started with "Scratch", an incredible self-expression system that's used by more than 30 million men and women worldwide and lets them produce amazing, colourful, musical, moving creations just by fitting multi-coloured blocks together with the mouse. These creations may then be shared among a vast community of users, or just with family and friends, and can include interactive stories, games, animations, and lots more.

It's simple to use, costs nothing, is great for the brain, and is way more fun than crosswords or sudoku. It could also be the start of forming a local "Scratch community" and meeting new people. And refreshments will be provided.

PLEASE NOTE: You must be a U3A member to attend this workshop (which costs just $30 per year and gives you access to a wide range of engaging courses) and will be asked to contribute $4 for refreshments and venue hire at the event. You can find out more about joining U3A at the U3A Website.
