Code Builder

 

Overview

Think - build - create! 

This dynamic workshop explores the wonder and potential of computer programming through a series of practical experiments with mechanical kit.

Students will use basic coding language to devise and input procedures, test them, rework them and see the results in action.

The session encourages development of logic and computational thinking skills, as well as exploring the interaction between hardware and software.

This workshop runs on Thursdays during term time at 11:00 and 12:45. Please contact us to make your booking.

Download the Teachers' Guide to help you and other accompanying adults support your students during the workshop.

The session complements visits to our new Information Age gallery.
