What can you make with a BBC Micro:Bit? Whether you have a programming expert or a budding Bill Gates at home, our maker experts will guide them through electronics and programming to make something that buzzes, blinks, and moves. From a robotic arm to an interactive badge, they will explore the mechanics, tools and software with which to make their imagination a reality.

Bring along your own Micro:Bit if you have one. Kits will be provided to work with during the workshop. Kits to take home can be purchased on the day for £15 (including cords, instructions, handouts, and sensors). To reserve one please email Noelle on [email protected]
