Description

Decode secret messages and program Minecraft using PatternCraft punchcards and Micro:bits

PatternCraft is a tool for exploring the fundamentals of encoding and decoding data through the write-once medium of a physical punchcard. In this workshop participants will learn how to program Minecraft using a set of punchcard commands and will be introduced to a number of ways that data can be encoded including binary and morse code. Using PatternCraft and Micro:bits participants will work in teams to decode secret messages, solve puzzles and generate codes to program their way through a Minecraft World.

This workshop is part of Playful Anywhere's ongoing research to develop family friendly workshops for the Toybox project.

As places are limited, we please ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes before the start time of the workshop or let us know if you are running late. If you have not registered for your workshop by the start time, we reserve the right to reallocate your place/s on a first come first served basis.
