Creative Computing Club - Micro:net
Sat 27 May 2017, 10:00 – 11:30 BST
Saturday 27th May 2017
The fridge, the car and even your watch can all be connected to the internet – in fact they might be already. The Internet of Things is changing the way we use technology and connecting us in more ways than ever before.
While BBC micro:bits can’t connect to the internet themselves, they can communicate with each other. During this workshop you and your child will be able to create your very own mini internet – or micro:net – using the micro:bit’s radio to send and receive “emergency broadcasts” sent to all. Have a go at sending secret messages to another radio operator across the room. Can they work out who their secret agent partner is? Join us for another great family coding workshop.
Suitable for those new to coding or children who have attended a previous coding workshop.
10AM – 11.30AM Ages 9-12
12.30AM -2PM Ages 9-12
2.30PM – 4PM Ages 12-15 (Unaccompanied)
9-12 year olds in the morning sessions must be accompanied. The afternoon session for ages 12 – 15 is unaccompanied and so permission forms must be completed. Forms can be downloaded here and can be emailed to Sarah Townson in advance, or printed and brought along on the day.
Our Creative Computing Club is kindly sponsored by Steven Wray, a winner of I’m an engineer Get me out of here 2015.
