The course will run on Saturday mornings from 09.00 to 10.00 during term time, beginning 3 June 2017. It will finish on Saturday 29 July 2017.

Organiser

Radio Communication Museum of Great Britain

We are a new technology museum being built in Derby which will focus on Radio Communication equipment and software.  Although the museum is not yet open to the public, we are starting to use the museum building for our Code Club activities.

We will be running a range of clubs for both children and adults.  Please look on Eventbrite or our website www.radiocommunicationmuseum.org for more information.

For children we are now running the following "free to attend" code clubs:

  • SCRATCH programming for complete beginners and aimed at children aged 9 to 11
  • PYTHON programming for more advanced coders and aimed at children aged 10 to 16

From September 2017 we plan to also run a range of electronics and science clubs, some for children and some for both children and adults.  These clubs will run on specific weekday evenings and at the weekend.  There will be a club membership fee and a meeting charge to offset the consumable and running costs.

  • Electronics beginner's club, introducing complete beginners to the basics of electronics design and construction aimed at children aged 10 to 16
  • Arduino and Raspberry Pi projects (software and electronics) for the more advanced coders and aimed at children aged 10 to 18
  • Space Science club for both children (aged 14 upwards) and adults.  This will include building electronic and software projects to link up with the International Space Station and orbiting satellites.  A proposed project includes the flight of a high altitude balloon carrying a Raspberry Pi payload with sensors and camera.
  • Amateur radio Foundation licence training and examination
  • Amateur radio Intermediate licence training and examination
  • Amateur radio Advanced licence training and examintion

We have an extensive radio operations room and an ESD protected electronics workshop. Adults and children will be able to become "Friends of the Museum" and make use of the equipment for their personal enjoyment.

If any of these clubs are of interest to you then please visit our website or the appropriate eventbrite page and and register your interest.

 If you are visiting our clubs then find the directions below.  At present, because we are located on a newly built industrial park, the post code of DE21 6AS may sometimes take you to a slightly different location !!

We are located just off the old Nottingham Road.  If you find the Pentagon Traffic island on the A52 come round the traffic island past the entrance to Derbyshire Cricket Club and take the next exit (Nottingham Road) signposted Chaddesdon, after a quarter of a mile you will see Hillside Leisure (a large blue building) on your right.  Immediately  after that building, also on your right, is the entrance to Sawley Park. We are the third building (detached) on your right.  We have a large 16 on the building.  Free parking is available in front of and to the side of the building.
