This Summer DIYAbility is hosting workshops for teens with physical disabilities and their siblings. June is all about introducing computer programming and custom interfaces.
In this month’s workshops teens will:
- Learn to program with MIT’s Scratch to make custom games, musical instruments and animations. Drag code blocks to program your ideas, then share them online with friends.
- Next, make custom interfaces with the MakeyMakey. Forget about the keyboard and computer mice, maybe a banana would be a better interface or maybe Playdoh buttons.
Learning to program is a skill that can offer endless opportunities for increasing independence and quality of life…and there are a lot of jobs available for programmers today in practically every industry. It’s a good time to be a programmer : )
