Celebrating fifty years since the Apollo 11 moon landing, we’ll be using Python and a BBC Micro:bit to communicate with model moon buggies across the vast wasteland of (maker) space. There’ll be plenty of lunar challenges to face at this coding workshop, including guiding the buggies to pick up ‘moon rock’ samples using a servo-controlled grabbing claw. There’s also the time delay between Earth and the moon to grapple with – 1.255 seconds can be a long time when you’re trying to successfully navigate an already rocky mission!

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

Science Oxford welcomes all children to our clubs. If you or your child has additional needs, please get in touch on [email protected] to discuss how we can best support your child to make the most of the club.

We recommend beginners come along to the 10am session and those who have been coming to our clubs for a little while or have some knowledge already to come to the 12.30pm session.
