Maker Difference with Circuit Playground Express, via DefProc Engineering.

We have recently had the privilege to learn about some new tech and work with some super talented and enthusiastic young people as part of the Maker Difference Project with Liverpool Libraries and Sefton Libraries in conjunction with the amazing Liverpool Girl Geeks.

We have just complete a four-part course at Parklands Library, Speke, Liverpool. Our Saturday mornings have been spent teaching and inspiring 11-14 year old girls to understand coding and how it can be used creatively. We also ran a shorter version of this over 3 mornings during February half term at Netherton Library and Activity Center.

While going into some important technical aspects; the sessions were designed to spark ideas of what they could achieve with the Circuit Playground Express and how creativity is important for innovative programming in the future. We explored the sensor inputs such as light, sound and accelerometer and ventured into creating coloured light animations with sounds and games.

If you’re local, please check out the Young MakeFest at Liverpool Central Library on 23rd March 2018 11am until 3pm for a Circuit Playground Express workshop!
