Time to get technical in term 2!
Are you seriously obsessed with Robots? Want to learn how to program your own games? Then MOTAT has you sorted for after-school this term!
Every Tuesday, MOTAT has two coding clubs that you can join! At Coding with Nao, you get to learn how to programme the totally awesome humanoid robot NAO! He’s 58cm tall and can walk, talk, listen, dance and even recognize your face! Or, if you have learned all you can about Scratch block coding and want to learn how to write your own code then Learn to Code@MOTAT is a great club for you. Get super technical as you become a python coding genius (python the programme that is – not the snake!)
If you’re too busy on a Tuesday but reaaalllly want to know how to program robots or dream of one day entering a Robotics competition, then you are in luck! On Wednesdays MOTAT has Robotics @ MOTAT where you get to work with the super cool VEX IQ Robotics kits.
If you live too far away to get to MOTAT in the afternoons, don’t worry, the Museum has these great activities planned for the weekends too:
WHAT’S ON IN MAY
OMGTech! And MOTAT are getting together for a great Techweek-end on 26 and 27 May! You can join in for one day or two. Learn to code, design your own game and even make objects with a 3D printer!
May is also the month that you need to treat mum extra special – because it’s Mother’s Day! MOTAT has you sorted with A Peachy Keen Mother’s Day. Bring mum to the Museum where she can watch a vintage fashion show, go to a pamper parlour and enjoy the special 1950’s day with the entire family!
WHAT’S ON IN JUNE
Have you noticed that it’s getter dark a lot earlier? Well, that’s because we are getting closer to the shortest day of the year. It also means that Night Lights at MOTAT is back! See the museum light up as transport and technology collide. Apart from the installations there will also be cool light activations such as projection mapping, shadow play areas, illuminated heritage buildings and vintage trams festooned with fairy lights (Don’t worry – it’s not on a school night!)
