Event Details

ALL the activities will be availble to you and your family when purchasing a day or annual ticket.

As well as the drop in sessions, We will also be offering bookable workshops - Coming soon

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 workshop, 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.

Code.org and The Hour of Code

Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Their vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra. Code.org organizes the annual Hour of Code campaign which has engaged 10% of all students in the world and provides the leading curriculum for computer science. Code.org is supported by generous donors including Microsoft, Facebook, the Infosys Foundation, Google, Omidyar Network, and many more.

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. One-hour tutorials are available in over 30 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104. 84,996 events are registered for Hour of Code 2019 with 1095 being held here in the United Kingdom

In partnership with Code.org, The National Museum of Computing is offering a free Hour of Code workshop featuring a Minecraft lesson plan from Code.org for kids aged 8 to 13 years. Explore the world of Minecraft and exercise your critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity!

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.
