Want to live in a future where you can chat with your computer? Start making that future the reality by programming a BBC micro:bit to speak in this talkative computing workshop from Science Oxford. Modify your micro:bit’s speech to sound like a robot or Dalek, teach it how to pronounce words correctly, and make it sing to you! Can you code the micro:bit to ask and respond to questions – or maybe even pass the Turing Test?

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

10AM – 11.30AM Ages 9-12

12.30AM -2PM Ages 9-12

2.30PM – 4PM Ages 12-15 (Unaccompanied)

9-12 year olds in the morning sessions must be accompanied. 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 Sarah Townson in advance, or printed and brought along on the day.

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