Chris Monk introduces the brand new BBC Micro Bit to the Colossus Rebuild. One million Micro Bits - a stripped-down computer similar to a Raspberry Pi - will be given to all pupils starting secondary school this autumn.
Even if your school doesn't visit TNMOC, every weekend, individual youngsters can come along with their parents to try their hand at coding in the Ocado-sponsored Weekend Codability Project.
A team of young Codability Guides will signpost and support visitors on a range of devices from the ever-popular 1980's BBC Micro to Raspberry Pi and other devices. A variety of modern laptops and tablets will be available to ensure that young people will know how to continue to develop their skills through web apps such as Rapid Router and other popular entry-level coding resources available on platforms that they already have at home.
