Young coders get ready for winter and learn ‘cool’ new skills at this month’s Creative Computing Club. Using MakeCode programming language and BBC micro:bits, we’ll create a prototype mug that signals when your hot chocolate is the right temperature to drink, or you can turn a micro:bit into a handy torch that automatically lights up in the dark!

Get coding with expert guidance at our hands-on programming club for young technologists. Our fun sessions reflect real world scenarios as coders bring their own projects to life with the latest tech gadgets, experimenting with BBC micro:bits, speakers or lights and programming in a variety of languages such as Python, Scratch or MakeCode depending on the session.

We encourage creativity and self-led learning with themed projects, and practice patience and problem-solving skills in learning to debug computer code. Resources are available so that projects can be continued at home (this *may* require additional kit) and digital projects can be shared with friends online. Beginners welcome!

For more details please visit Science Oxford Centre visitor information.

Science Oxford welcomes all children to our clubs. If you or your child has additional needs, please get in touch to discuss how we can best support your child to make the most of the club.

We are committed to inclusion and we recognise that cost is sometimes a barrier. Funded places for eligible families are now available, thanks to the Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust. Families could be eligible for these places for several reasons; for example, if your child receives free school meals or is a looked-after child.
