Never written a program before? Then this workshop is for you!

The BBC Micro was used throughout schools during the eighties to teach computing. It has a very well written BASIC language and manual. Even though this iconic machine is over 30 years old now, it is still ideal for learning the fundamentals of programming.

This session is for children with little or no experience of programming and we'll be learning about input and output, variables, strings, loops and conditional execution. (Which is not as painful as it sounds!) We'll start with a simple one line program and end by writing a simple guessing game.

The session is approximately 1hr long. This is a fun and unique workshop aimed at children aged from seven upwards. All under 16's must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Booking is required to ensure your place.
