Share October STEM bytes

Event Details

STEM Bytes festivals have become the go-to Milton Keynes event for children wanting creative fun during the school holidays and every weekend throughout the year. From Minecraft to Lego, BBC Micro:bits to Robotics kits, there is plenty to do to unlock imaginations, inspire and entertain. Educational fun for all the family, providing Bytes sized tasters of coding, robotics, augmented reality, virtual reality and much much more!

The National Museum of Computing is proud to present its new and improved STEM Bytes programme, running at the museum every Saturday and Sunday and throughout all school holidays.

The details…

  • The activities are aimed at children aged 9-14, but big kids can come and play too.
  • ALL OUR stem activities are FREE with entrance to the Museum


Please note that these hands-on activities are not a drop off events. Parental supervision is required for the entire duration.

 Minecraft Challenge 

Minecraft is an open-world construction-based video game that promotes creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving in an immersive environment where the only limit is your imagination. There are different levels of challenge for a different level of craft-masters, from a competition to recreate one of the museum's many awesome Computers, to speedrun & survival mode based challenges! 

Lego Mindstorms Robots activities

Parental participation required due to the nature of activity

Participants will work with Lego Mindstorms to build and program a robot to solve a variety of problems, including mazes, moving objects and even racing. Lego Mindstorm kits are one of the world's best robotics kits, and can teach kids the potential of applying creative automated solutions to real-world problems. The programming can be a little in-depth, but if you're familiar with it, Mindstorm's proprietary scratch-style language is exceptionally powerful, and our kits come with a complete tutorial & guide! 

BBC Micro: Bit Activity Drop-in

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. The BBC micro: bit can do all sorts of things, like 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 and communicate with other Microbits - we find the real fun is letting kids discover all the things nobody told them they could do with one! 

In this workshop, children can learn to code from pre-constructed challenges and tasks that are designed to promote logical, creative thinking. We have a range of challenges suitable for all ages

Cubetto & Sphero Minis Drop-in

Cubetto is a friendly wooden robot that will teach your child the basics of computer programming through adventure and hands-on play. Montessori approved, LOGO Turtle inspired, Cubetto is ideal for little coders getting started, and the Sphero Minis - suitable from ages 5 - 50+, are a programmable, extremely fun little robot that can help kids learn how tiny code changes can have a massive impact on real-world performance! Featuring customisable colors, scratch & Javascript support! 

This event is primarily aimed at children aged between 4 – 7, adults be warned, it's more fun than it looks!
