Technology

Technology programs can be found in many different avenues at the MacPhee Centre – the programs below are a snapshot of how we integrate tech into a creative learning program. Ranging from crafting and producing your own podcast to creating a short clay-animation film incorporating the principles of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), if you are curious about tech and how it relates to the arts and a future career, these programs are for you!

    Digital Creating and Drawing Characters

    We live in a tech-world – so why not take the time to learn how to use your phone or tablet to draw some of your favourite characters. Explore digital character design and bring your own imaginary or real-life characters to life! 

    Podcasting & The "Pod Squad"

    Have you ever found yourself listening to a podcast and thought to yourself: “Hey, I could do this too”, but never knew how? Our podcasting programs are an opportunity to learn about the different kinds of podcasts that exist, what goes into creating an entire podcast – from titles, to scripting, to guest speakers - and have an opportunity to write and record your own!

    Web Development

    Covering what a website is, how they work, and transitioning into how they're developed- the program will focus on learning coding languages, html and css and will help youth launch their own basic website. A Mac or Windows computer with access to internet is required. Please reach out to MacPhee is tech access is a barrier.
