Computer Game Design Events

I would like to highlight one particular event that is running on Saturday 18th Oct which may be of interest to your pupils.

We are very lucky to have Computer Xplorers running workshops on Computer Game Design in Lasswade Library on Sat 18th Oct.

Seniors – 9-13 yrs is 10am
Juniors – 5-8yrs is 11.15am

In this workshop participants will create their very own a computer game and share it online for others to play.
It is a really inspiring workshop for any kids who are interested in computers or computer games.

You can see more about the event and book tickets via the Midlothian Science Festival website:

And don’t forget there are lots of other events at the Lasswade centre, including our highly popular Science Alive Gala day which is on Sat 11th Oct and is completely free. A brilliant way to start the holidays.
