Retro gaming

BBC Micro: Bit Activity
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 activity, children will learn how to code with the BBC micro: bit. Children will begin by learning to code for the device and by the end of the day, may be able to come up with their own ideas for future creations.

Robotic workshops-  free with your entry ticket dates TBC

Lego Mindstorms 

Participants will work with Lego Mindstorms to build and program a robot in just 2 hours. Mindstorms uses a block-based language similar to Scratch, which most of the children may have used in school. The workshop uses step by step instructions, like all Lego kits, and is great for both big kids and little kids!

Minecraft 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.This challenge gives our master builders just 2 hours to complete a model of an item from our museum in as much detail as possible to try and win a bag of prizes.


Cubetto & Robots

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. We had our first event at the museum introducing the world to Cubetto in December 2017 and now we ask ourselves; “What’s Next?” The event will explain and explore new modules, blocks, and activities that kids can undertake to increase their early year's knowledge of basic coding.

This event is primarily aimed at children aged between 4 – 7.
