Item Qty To Buy Price
Accompanying Adult £12.00
Workshop Participant £22.00

Description :

Come and join us for some remote-controlled fun with the micro:bit!  We will be using a pre-built buggy kit as our vehicle and micro:bit’s MakeCode interface to program the micro:bit.  By programming two micro:bits per vehicle, we can use one as a driver to slot into the buggy kit and the other one as a controller that will ‘talk’ to the driver and help the buggy navigate a racetrack!

This workshop is aimed at children aged 10 years and older and is ideal for children at upper Key Stage 2 or Key Stage 3 level.

This workshop session is priced at £22 per participant and includes entry to the museum all day! 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 £12 and include entry all day. 

Please note that we will be using our classroom kits for the session and you will not be able to take these away at the end. We will however have micro:bit kits available for sale in our shop to purchase.
