Curriculum Innovation CodeBug Experience - Wednesday 12 October

Most schools give children access to coding opportunities using software such as Scratch and Kodu. Some schools are able to offer access to physical computing activities using technology such as Lego EV3s, Makey Makeys and Raspberry Pi’s.

The CodeBug experience, to be delivered at the Innovaion Centre Bradford, enables up to 6 pupils and a teacher from your school to use the low cost CodeBug to create an object with a CodeBug embedded in it, for example as a piece of wearable technology. 

Codebug has 25 LEDs built in to the design that can be programmed to make patterns and words and the session will introduce the online editor (with simulator so you can test code without a physical Codebug) and how to programme the LEDs. The children can then work independently or in groups to create their own LED sequence that is then downloaded to the CodeBug to run on the device 

Children can keep the CodeBug to take back to school (at a cost of £15 per CodeBug) and they can then reuse the CodeBug at any time by creating some new code through the free online editor.

This half day session which runs from 9am until 12pm costs £100 per school for 1 teacher and up to 6 pupils.  If you would like further information please contact steve.dale@theinnovationcentres.com or to find out more and to book your place please click here.
