Cornwall Tech Jam LATE
Wednesday 25 05 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Come and try some creative coding projects and enjoy some adult refreshments and snacks – thanks to St Austell Brewery.
No experience necessary / Over 18’s only
Be prepared for all the excitement of a regular tech jam, condensed into just a couple of hours. The Software Cornwall team have years of combined experience in working with and teaching others how to get the most out of technology.
When you arrive at St Austell Brewery you’ll have your choice of a fresh Cornish pasty and a welcome drink to help make the learning even more fun! The bar will also stay open all night too!
Due to popular demand we’re splitting this event into separate ‘early’ and ‘late’ evening sessions. The ‘early evening’ session will run from 1800 – 2000 and the ‘late evening’ session will run between 2000-2200.
Tickets will be released for the ‘late evening’ session very soon!
Once the introductions and ice-breakers have finished you’ll work through the following activities throughout the session time.
Learn Python with Minecraft
Interact with the world of Minecraft through code. The use of Minecraft provides a rewarding outcome to the learning of a programming language. There is a physical interaction with the blocky world that provides a colourful result to the code working correctly.
Physical computing with the MicroBit
Use code to write messages and images to the MicroBit’s LED. Create interaction with buttons, measure temperature, build a compass and much more with this diminutive development board.
Mars Rover obstacle course
Learn how to use the MicroBit to program a Mission to Mars rover to drive around an obstacle course – either autonomously or with a remote control.
