Event description

Description

Makersphere is a free one day creative technology event for all ages. After the success of last year with over 300 people attending we have decided to do it all over again with the addition of a dedicated science area. During the day there will be workshops, demos, talks and the chance to find out more about your local coding clubs, makerspaces and teacher training courses. Workshops are suitable for primary and secondary children, adults who want to know more, teachers who want to develop skills in the latest educational computer science equipment and general enthusiasts. Come along and learn more about programming in Scratch, Python and HTML on the Raspberry Pi. Interact with the physical world of Minecraft. Learn more about coding with the micro:bit ,Codebug and Crumble. Step into the world of virtual reality. Try out your sewing skills with wearable Tech and be amazed by the capabilities of 3D printing. Test your investigation skills in our dedicated science experimental areas. Build your very own BloodHound race car, experience the magic of Green Screen, navigate your way in our Robot Arena and step back in time with our Retro Games arcade.

Register for your free ticket now, a link to book on workshops will be emailed to you nearer the time.

If you are interested in running a workshop, giving a demo or talk please contact the organisers.
