Interactive Installations and performances for children

fruitorchestra0 (1)

All our workshops can be tailored to individual organisation or events needs. They offer a rich opportunity for children to combine traditional craft making with digital materials through investigation and play that takes on new complexities. They facilitate playful exploration and creative thinking about how to integrate circuits and make something that is personally meaningful to each participant.
