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 :

Have you ever wanted to start coding with some fun applications? 
Join us for a great introduction into coding using a really simple interface and the versatile Micro:bit.

The session will contain four activities each and introduce key coding concepts such as logic, inputs, and wireless communications.  Along the way we will work through the code to understand exactly how it works.
No previous experience is required, just an interest in making tech do cool things!

The session is aimed at children aged between 8 and 11 and is ideal for Key Stage 2 and early Key Stage 3 students.  Please note that this is a beginner's workshop and provides a great introduction to the micro:bit.

The fee is £15 for workshop participants, whether an adult or a child.  

For participants under the age of 14, we require an accompanying adult to attend the workshop alongside them. Accompanying adult tickets can be purchased for the normal museum entry price of £9.

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

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