After School Activities
We run regular after school activities for 6-14 year old to encourage creative and computational thinking and working collaboratively. The following activities are cycled through Mornington, Rosebud and Hastings each school term. A parent or guardian is expected to be present in the library during the activity.

Milky Monster Makers
Do you want to make your very own computerised robot?
Over four weeks in this after school program, children will learn the basics of computer programming. Using a pocket-sized computer introduces children to how software and hardware work together. It has LED light display buttons. Sensors and many input/output features that, when programmed, let it interact with the children.
We will guide your child through the basics of creating programming to change the LED lights and interact with the buttons. Once they have the basics, they will design a monster using milk or egg carton craft supplies and the minicomputer to control the monster's mouth.
Places are limited, and bookings are essential. Suitable for ages 7-14.
