It’s Brighton Science Festival time again – this October half-term we’re at the lovely Middle Street Primary School, in the centre of Brighton. We’ll be doing our usual introduction to Python workshop, using Minecraft, but for those of you who have been before, or are more advanced, we’ll show you some more advanced stuff!
This half-term we’re using our good friends at EEQU for bookings. EEQU are an exciting new start-up in the Brighton area providing a platform for educational workshops. EEQU’s ideas about holistic education and the skills children will need in the future are exactly in alignment with ours here. We love them!

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 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.
