Hands-on workshop based around discovering ultra-efficient car design through reverse engineering. Delivery of multiple sessions to primary and secondary school groups during a multi-day festival at London's Olympic Park.
Mum & Daughter Workshops
A unique event created for the annual Spring Forward Festival, a celebration of Women in Digital Culture. Girls and their mothers (or female adult mentors) take part in creative technology workshops including Minecraft EDU, Lego robotics and stop-motion animation.
Project Management in Tech
A 10-hour course delivered for Year 10 students on work experience, comprising robotics challenges and a project management competition. The on-site course culminated with students' presentations of their solutions to Vice Presidents of the global technology company.
Minecraft at the Museum
Enabling participation in a virtual palaeontology dig, these workshops held at the Booth Museum of Natural History integrated the handling of artefacts from the museum's fossil collection.
Play | Create
An on-site workshop delivered to staff at a global innovation foundation to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day. Participants were invited to build, create, invent and play with Lego robotics.
A workshop developed for a global energy company's outreach programme. Incorporating MakeyMakey and Scratch, students designed and built digital instruments for musicians with specific needs. A successful pilot scheme saw delivery in 15 primary schools before roll-out across the UK.
A series of robotics and programming workshops integrating concepts from Agile methodology, created for staff at a global technology company. Delivered on-site and tailored for beginner, intermediate and advanced audience levels.
