Straight from the professor! Programming workshop for parents on 12/18
Dr. Harada, developer of Viscuit, will lead a special programming workshop for parents on 12/18 (Mon)!
What is Viscuit?
Viscuit (http://www.viscuit.com/) is a visual programming language where you can use your own drawings to make programs. Even very young children can enjoy using Viscuit on PCs or tablets to make their own games and animations. We use Viscuit at TECH PARK and many children have already used it to create all sorts of neat programs.
This event’s aim
This time we’ve invited Dr. Harada, developer of Viscuit, to TECH PARK where parents will be able to receive the same kind of programming workshop kids usually do, then hear directly from him about his ideas regarding creating Viscuit.
Come try out the kinds of programming activities the kids experience and see what you can make. If you're interested in programming education, we definitely recommend trying out this activity for yourself.
This activity will use tablets and cover everything from the basics, so you can feel free to attend even if you aren’t particularly experienced with PCs or IT.
