Summer Schools: Magic of Computer Science (age 10–12)
Thu 24 August 2017, 14:00 – 16:30 BST
When you learn to be a magician, it turns out you are learning the skills needed to be a great computer scientist too: computational thinking. In this workshop Paul Curzon will demonstrate some real magic tricks and teach the group how they are done so they can do the tricks themselves. Students will then use the magic to learn the linked basics of computer science and see what computational thinking is all about and how both magicians and computer scientists rely on it.
This workshop is strictly for 10-12 year-olds and is aimed at those with little or no experience of computer coding.
There will be a short break during the workshop and a drink and a small snack will be provided. Students should bring their own snack if they have any allergies. They should also bring pens, pencils and a calculator.
Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
