digital art with scratch

Coding with Scratch: Digital Art

Age 7 to 14

Create three separate apps to automatically draw some crazy artwork. Every drawing will be a unique masterpiece!

Write the code to make the sprite move around the stage and use the pen blocks to draw lines as it moves. We’ll hide the sprite so that the drawings appear like magic.

Then experiment with the code to try out different ideas.

Scratch is a great way for you to learn how to code. Its fun and easy to use ... but also very powerful! It's the programming language used in most schools around the world.

It's completely free to use and runs on most computers.

chromatography experiment


Science: Chemistry: Separating Mixtures
Age 7 to 13

Exploration rather than explanation. Have fun while learning science.

Coloured chemicals can be separated using a technique called chromatography. This is a chance to mix science and art!

This experiment uses paper chromatography to separate the different coloured dyes in felt tip inks.

Chromatography is also widely used in areas like forensics and developing new vaccines.
