CAS Teesside Hub Meeting

Wednesday 19th March, 2014
The King's Academy, Middlesbrough
5pm - 7:30pm
As schools ramp up and try out a variety of computing activities at all keystages we take a look at a range of practical approaches.
Whether it's making birds flap at KS3, studying processor architecture at GCSE or expermenting with Raspberry Pis there loads of opportunities. Learn from others - the tips, the mis-steps, the helpsheets - and build up the confidence to try them out yourself.
