A day-long, mainly hands-on session at the National Museum of Computing in Bletchley.
This will suit children with an interest in computing, maths and the development of computing. Further details to come later.
This visit is will be divided into two sub-groups:
Upper KS2-KS3 group: 9-13 year olds. (The usual minimum age for the National Museum of Computing is 10yrs. 9yrs is concession)
KS4/GCSE group: 12-16 year olds. This group is particularly suitable for those studying GCSE computing and/or maths.(although they do not have to be working towards an exam, it’s an indication of the level)
The activities for the day (in rotation) are:
- Codes and ciphers maths session, with tour of the PC gallery and games
- Coding on Raspberry Pis with Fuze
- Coding on BBC Micros
Please book for the AGE that your child is. The two groups will be doing the same kind of activity, it’s just so that they have a better chance of social interaction – particularly for the teens, where there tends to be structured HE activities for them, than for younger children.
