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 9 and 12 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.

This workshop session is priced at £16 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.
