Mind Buzz Minecraft Camp (Friday)

This fun and educational Minecraft camp will be held at the Loftus Community Centre on Friday the 12th of April.  We use laptops (supplied) to unlock the true magic of JAVA Minecraft. It’s a great school holiday activity and they can continue their learning and connections long after the workshop finishes. It’s being run by MindBuzz. We will be working on multiple servers learning things like crafting, teleporting and how to navigate between worlds using commands. Minecraft commands are great for learning the building blocks of coding. We will start off in a tutorial section before graduating through levels of difficulty into the other servers/worlds. The day is designed to maximise collaboration between players and we place a heavy emphasis on caring for other players, helping out and being a leader. All participants will receive FREE access to the MindBuzz camp world and online courses after the camp! Participants will also have the chance to earn leadership ranks on the day such as COACH, and MODERATOR. See you in Leederville for the Ultimate School Holiday Program: a fun and educational day at Minecraft Camp.

WA Tree Festival – Nature and Time

 

🎨 Nature and Time is a new solo exhibition by Perth Hills artist Georgia Efford.
Nature and Time is inspired by the ways that traces of the movement of time can be seen in nature.
Perth Hills artist Georgia Efford employs a unique and mature style that is both visually literal, calligraphic and structured without repetition.
“Nature and Time” is a deceptively simple title, but a complex and layered exhibition about the iridescent qualities of time that we all live through and sometimes see.
📍 Zig Zag Gallery 📅 Friday 12 April – Sunday 5 May
This exhibition fits perfectly in theme for WA Tree Festival month from April – May. 📲 Visit https://www.kalamunda.wa.gov.au/…/arts…/nature-and-time for more information.

Brain games at Bullsbrook Library

 

Join Artistic Disorder and explore some of the wild and wacky ways our brain gets information.

We all know that the brain is the boss of our bodies – but did you know that our body can play tricks on our brain and vice versa? In this hands-on session, children will perform experiments that ‘trick’ the brain and body, learn about the importance of the nervous system in everyday life, and try out some techniques and tools to calm an over-excited or anxious brain.

Our school holidays programs are popular and often sell out. If this event has sold out, please join the waitlist and we’ll do our best to contact you when a spot becomes available.

Please book in as spaces are limited. For all inquiries contact Bullsbrook Public Library on (08) 9207 8989.

Please note that this program is suitable for children aged 5 – 12, and is a hands-on workshop. Photographs and videos may be taken of the event. Please book one ticket for each person attending. Parents must be in attendance but do not need to book a ticket for themselves.
