Twickenham Coding Evening – Change of Venue

As our usual venue is closed for renovations, we’re trying out a new venue, the Library Pot Games Cafe in Richmond.

Make sure you sign up here.

The Library Pot have generously given us their function room for free so the evening costs absolutely nothing, unless you want to get some food and drink from the bar upstairs! Please remember that the Library Pot is principally a games cafe so food service can sometimes be a little slow. There is usually a £5 fee for going to the Library Pot so grab this opportunity to have a quick look around and see what games they have in stock*

 

*NB you will have to pay entry fee if you choose to play games instead of attending Coding Evening – sorry 😉

Congratulations Coder Dojo Richmond College

Today Katy Parnell, a regular at Twickenham Coding Evening, along with her colleague Janna, helped to organise a half term Coder Dojo at Richmond College. Workshops included Scratch, Kodu, Microbit and even Arduino and Katy managed to persuade Nic Hughes, Richard Hayler and Marc Grossman to come along and help out as well as myself.

With over 20 children in attendance, the event was a huge success and the children had an amazing time. There were lots of enthusiastic parents who really got involved too!

I’m so impressed with how amazingly hard Katy and Janna worked to make the event a success and I can’t help but feel a little bit proud that an alumni of Coding Evening is sharing her enthusiasm with others.

Well done Katy and Janna, good luck with the next one and hopefully we’ll see you all at the next Coding Evening in Twickenham on Thursday 10th November. Sign up here.

Twickenham Coding Evening – May

With lots going on and the summer term heating up, I’ve realised I’ve forgotten to post about the upcoming May Coding Evening in Twickenham. We will be visited by Pi Top again who are eager to show off their new CEED, I’ve got my new CamJam Robot ready to show off and loads of other great bits and pieces to demo to teachers.

We’ll also be able to chat about the upcoming Wimbledon Raspberry Jam that I’m helping to organise.

So, get your free tickets here and we’ll see you on Thursday in Twickenham!
