Lab Liftoff: micro:bit & make

February 20, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


You’re invited to… Lab Liftoff: micro:bit & make
Join us for a full day skills camp for children 7-12 exploring creative invention using micro:bit, a tiny programmable computer, designed to make learning easy and fun!

What can I expect at Lab Liftoff: micro:bit & make
Working in small teams, children will learn how to use micro:bit, a multifunctional, handheld, programmable micro-computer that can be used for all sorts of creations, from robots to musical instruments.

Once they have got to grips with their micro:bit, children will be invited to invent and design from a range of open ended projects that involve motors, lights and sensors.

This is an opportunity for children to learn how to code a micro-computer using the Make Code interface while also using arts and crafts for their creations to inspire creativity.

The workshop is for all abilities and allows children with previous experience of micro:bit to work at a more skilled pace.

When is Lab Liftoff: micro:bit & make
This camp is taking place on Wednesday 20 February, from 10:00am until 4:00pm. This is a drop-off event, children do not need to be accompanied by a parent or carer during the workshop. There will be a show and tell at 3:30pm, which parents/ carers are encouraged to attend. Children should be collected at 4:00pm.

Who is Lab Liftoff: micro:bit & make for and how much does it cost?

Ideal for children aged 7-12 years. The camp costs £65 for the full day of activities. Please note, projects cannot be taken home at the end of the day as the micro:bit computers must remain in the Imagination Lab.
