This event is in partnership with Computing at School and forms part of events to celebrate Computer Science Education Week. Computing at School are organizing a nation-wide campaign to encourage 10 million students (and adults) to try an Hour of Code. This will be the largest initiative of its kind, ever.
This event will provide a hands-on experience, for teachers new to coding, covering both coding and control using the Picaxe and Arduino chip systems in addition to the Raspberry Pi. Drawing on a range of STEM based activities participants will be able to experience activities, which could be taken directly into the school setting, to introduce coding using BASIC, C and Scratch and with direct links to the new Computing Curriculum.
This event is suitable for primary and secondary teachers - no prior experience of programming is necessary.
The event will be held at the Clifton Campus, Ada Byron King Building, room 106.

When & Where
Computing At School
Computing At School (CAS)
Computing At School group aims to promote the teaching of computer science at school. CAS was born out of our excitement with our discipline, combined with a serious concern that many students are being turned off computing by a combination of factors that have conspired to make the subject seem dull and pedestrian. Our goal is to put the excitement back into Computing at school.
