Kinetic Art and Coding Workshops

Duration: 3 hours
Community Space8 - 12 Years

Combine your love of art and technology by creating a kinetic (dynamic) artwork you can code.

Held at the Powerhouse Community Space at Parramatta Square, eight- to 12-year-olds will explore and manipulate motion systems, code using Arduino microcontrollers, experiment with materials and observe the consequent behaviours of their artwork in this 45-minute workshop.

This workshop is run by Powerhouse Museum in partnership with Mimi Kind, a Sydney-based artist who creates kinetic sound sculptures and installations.

Workshops start at 11am, 12 noon and 1pm and re bookable on arrival.

Don’t have time for a full session? Drop in for some fun STEM activities. Connect a red/green/blue LED to an Arduino and use a light sensor to change the colour of the LED.
