In correlation with British Science Week 2017 (10-19 Mar) we are offering introductory session for complete coding beginners to come along and learn the basics. You will be able to try out the latest equipment including the BBC Microbit and Raspberry Pi and see your programming come to life.
These courses are designed to introduce the computer novice to the small but capable technologies that are now being introduced into schools. No previous knowledge is assumed and the simple steps will take you through the basics from plugging everything in to writing your first piece of code. Each session focuses on a different small computer.
The BBC Microbit was given away to schools last year. It is a small but capable board that is simply programmed from a computer. From being introduced to the board, you’ll have your name in lights in no time.
The Raspberry Pi is a complete computer on a small board, which means it can do a lot more than the Microbit. You’ll be introduced to the Pi get to know some of its capabilities and start controlling the on screen cat.
All materials will be provided. Workshop attendees get 10% off all food and hot drinks at the Café Bar.
