Glasgow Science Centre

The innovators of tomorrow are on their way!

This summer, OPEN Glasgow gives hundreds of children throughout the city a taste of programming.

The free ‘Future Makers’ events will see children and youngsters from 5 to 17 get involved in a range of activities during drop-in sessions, workshops and summer camps. The younger children will play with the concepts behind computing while the older ones will try their hand at building a website or a game and experiment with wearable technology. The materials will be published open source so that anyone can use them: as a learning tool whether you attended or not or as planning tool so others can organise similar initiatives.
