The fridge, the car and even your watch can all be connected to the internet – in fact they might be already. The Internet of Things is changing the way we use technology and connecting us in more ways than ever before.

While BBC micro:bits can’t connect to the internet themselves, they can communicate with each other. During this workshop you and your child will be able to create your very own ‘micro:net’ – using the micro:bit’s radio to send and receive “emergency broadcasts” sent to all. Have a go at sending secret messages to another radio operator across the room. Can they work out who their secret agent partner is? Join us for another great family coding workshop.

Booking information & permission forms

Suitable for those new to coding or children who have attended a previous coding workshop.

9-12 year olds sessions must be accompanied by an adult.

The afternoon session for ages 12 – 15 is unaccompanied and so permission forms must be completed. Forms can be downloaded here and can be emailed to the Creative Computing Clubs Team in advance, or printed and brought along on the day.

For information on our terms and conditions visit here.

Our Creative Computing Club is kindly sponsored by Steven Wray, a winner of I’m an engineer Get me out of here 2015.
