Minecraft & BBC Micro:bit Easter Workshops
Thu 13 April 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Minecraft Redstone Challenge
Minecraft is an open-world game that promotes creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving in an immersive environment where the only limit is your imagination.
In this workshop, children will learn how to build virtual working machines using a range of advanced blocks including Redstone.
Prior experience of Minecraft would be beneficial for this workshop.
BBC micro:bit workshop
The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. This little device has an awful lot of features, like 25 red LED lights that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. The BBC micro:bit can detect motion and tell you which direction you’re heading in, and it can use a low energy Bluetooth connection to interact with other devices and the Internet.
In this workshop, children will learn how to code with the BBC micro:bit. Children will begin by learning to code by using blocks before moving on to text-based programming with Microsoft Touchdevelop.
