Make Your Own Video Game

The Rhode Island Computer Museum will present a free Workshop call "Make Your Own Video Game." This is a great chance to put down your controllers and take time to learn interactive software titled "Scratch" and create your own "video game" sample. Presented by our learning team, the program will also include an exhibit on "Historic Video Games." The exhibit aims to explain the impact of Early Video Games and then teach the MIT developed youth program "Scratch." Scratch is a computer program developed to teach software coding and allows you can create your own "video game" sample. The workshop aims to explain how early video games were made and give students new skills to develop their own games. The presentation is part of ongoing traveling exhibits by the Rhode Island Computer Museum.

Henna by Heather

Henna by Heather
Humans have been adorning their bodies with beautiful, natural henna for millennia. From ancient Egyptian mummies to modern day Indian weddings, henna is often used to mark and celebrate rites of passage and times of transition. We'll discuss where the henna plant grows, how it is prepared for use in decorating the skin, and how botany and physiology combine to make it possible for the designs to last 1-3 weeks. After learning about the history and science of henna, participants will get to experience this art form first-hand, drawing out their own patterns and having henna applied by professional henna artist Heather Caunt-Nulton of Henna by Heather.
