Makey Makey Game Controllers

Hosted by Chris Ball

Dedicated to all those who love to tinker with connected objects, this workshop offers them a unique occasion to playfully (re)discover the awesome Makey-Makeys!

We’ll be using them to create our own game controllers, using nothing but pencils and card.

No previous skills are required for this workshop open to kids and adults from 7 to 17 years old, but the desire to explore the possibilities offered by this electronic kit which gives everyone access to the basics of interactivity.

EU Code Week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way…

Cheshire East Council’s Shift programme for digital, creative technology and new media has received funding from Google to deliver computer coding based activity as part of EU Code Week.

This funding enables us to run public access and schools workshops in partnership with Libraries across the borough over two weeks from 5-19 October.

EU code week is an international event that aims to skill up young people who would not normally have access to this type of computer science education.

In an increasingly digital world, it aims to develop skills and interests of young people to help make this a potential choice for their future career.
