Fire Tech Experiences are regular, super short, high-interest sessions about the very latest developments in technology on topics you will love. Designed and led by inspiring, enthusiastic experts, Fire Tech Experiences introduce you to new worlds and ideas from the comfort of home.
Have you ever wanted to tell stories in a visual way? Whether by creating animations or narrated stories with illustrations? Then why not do so using Scratch? Let us show you how to get started and you’ll be creating new stories before you know it.
Usually, we think of Scratch as a tool for creating games, but it has far more potential than that. We’ll take you through ideas for how to organise your story, and how to create it, where to find cool artwork or draw your own and how to add narration, multiple scenes or animations to help tell the story.
You may not realise it but there is actually a whole genre of video games which are made in exactly this way. Perhaps your own creation will become the next great game in this genre!
FireTech Experiences are a new series of short, high interest, fun and engaging tech demonstrations and talks. These are delivered in webinar-style, with the main presenter demonstrating a new interesting aspect of technology and learning, and taking questions from attendees.
