Technology - Kids

Event Details

Why do your homework when you could build your own app?

Adults aren’t the only ones with great ideas for apps. If you could build your own, what would it do? Yuma Soerianto, an eleven-year-old Melburnian who loves to code, has created six apps on the App Store, including games and a talking calculator. Yuma was the youngest scholarship winner at Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference in 2017 and loves to share his coding skills with other kids. Come meet him at ArtPlay and learn the basics using Apple’s Swift Playground program. We will provide the iPads, so all you need to bring is your creativity!

This event is suitable for 7 to 12 year olds.
