Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Description :

Come and join us for a workshop of coding, 1980's style!

The BBC Micro, familiar to an entire generation of UK children, inspired many of today's leading UK tech figures.  It's still a great tool for teaching coding logic and computational thinking.  In this workshop we'll be using its language, BBC BASIC, to create shapes, sounds, games and more.  

This workshop is aimed at children aged ten and up and is ideal for children at the KS3 and KS4 levels. Please note that all under 14's must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
The fee is £12 for workshop participants, whether an adult or a child.  Accompanying adults are charged our standard entry fee of £8.

Although the booking is for a specific time slot, entry to the museum is permitted all day.  The museum is open from 10am to 5pm.

Tea, coffee and snacks will be available from our Pac Lunch Shop.  There's plenty of seating for parents :)

Date: Saturday 28th July
Start Times : 11am & 2pm
Workshop Duration : 1hr approx.

Spaces for these exciting hands-on workshops are limited, so booking is required to ensure your place.

Payment is taken by PayPal immediately. Please print a copy of the receipt that is displayed at the end of the payment process and bring it with you as your e-ticket.
