Older events!

We’re running Python coding workshop slots at the enormous Big Bang Fair this summer at the South of England Showground. It’s Wednesday and Thursday 26/27th June 2019. It’s completely free, but you need to book through your school. It’ll be 45 minute slots, so a very quick introduction, but we’ll modify it depending on how keen you are, and see how much we can get done! Talk to your school for booking information.

We’re back at the lovely C\Side Quest venue on Brighton Beach this February half term as part of the Brighton Science Festival. If you missed out last October, now’s the time to book.

You can book below, or if you’re on a mobile device and can’t see the booking form below, book here.

Brighton Science Festival

October 2018

We’re just back from a great two days of coding and hacking workshops at the wonderful Brighton Science Festival in the October half term! Thanks to everyone who came along and worked so hard learning how to hack Minecraft with the Python programming language. Thanks to Celia and all the staff at C:\Side Quest down on the beach at Brighton for hosting us. We’d love to come back sometime.

Are you looking for the worksheets or resources we used at the workshop? You’ll find them, along with pointers to all the gear we use on our Kit List page.

As ever, if you’d like to book us for your festival/event, or for a private party or workshop, get in touch and we’ll sort something out. Visit the contact page, or say hello on Facebook.
