The Royal Air Force Museum Cosford has teamed up with Tablet Academy to offer youngsters a fun festive themed technology workshop entitled ‘Merry Minecraft and a Happy New Robot’, taking place on Saturday 9 December.

This brand new workshop will give children the chance to tackle a number of Christmas themed activities including advanced features in Minecraft, Christmas coding, Cyber Security and Code-breaking. During this festive themed day, attendees will take part in a series of build battles in Minecraft and learn how code music with a pocket sized programmable computer called the BBC micro:bit. Participants will also learn how to crack simple codes to reveal hidden secret messages.

Abi Betteridge, RAF Museum Cosford Events Manager said:
“Following on from the success of the workshops we ran in August, we wanted to offer something a little bit different to the usual Christmas activities, so we are delivering another technology based workshop, but still with a festive twist. We only have a limited number of places remaining – so be quick!”

The workshop costs £30 per person and just 30 spaces are available, CLICK HERE to book your place.
