Combining computing and crafting, this workshop is all about making your own piece of wearable tech using a range of creative skills including simple programming.

CodeBug is a cute, programmable and wearable device designed to introduce simple programming and electronic concepts to anyone, at any age. CodeBug can display graphics and text, has touch sensitive inputs and you can power it with a watch battery. At home, it is easy to program CodeBug using an online interface, which features colourful drag and drop blocks, an in-browser emulator and engaging community features.
At this workshop families will learn how to program the tiny CodeBug computer so it scrolls their chosen messages and animations. They will then design a cover for their CodeBug to turn it into an animated badge.

In collaboration with OYAP
