Linking with some of our local schools, providing fun resources for coding and robotics activities and clubs.
Computer studies is now a core part of the school curriculum. Learning to code is a key part of the subject.
Robotics is a great way of drawing in budding programmers, by demonstrating how a few lines of code can operate a real world device and importantly show how to get that device to function independantly of human interaction, ie robotics.
We use the highly versatile, relatively powerful yet budget priced BBC Microbit and Raspberry Pi ‘micro-computers’, along with a variety of hobby electronic components.
Step-by-step build instructions and full code are included in a full range of fun, interesting and informative ‘robotics’ style projects, starting with something as simple as gettin a light flashing, up to a ‘robot wars’ (and beyond) project with self-sensing robots fighting it out with each other.
Two decades of technical experience in
the UK professional I.T. Industry.
Academically qualified to degree and further degree level at British universities in Birmingham and Manchester – the birthplace of modern computing.
Based in the South West of England, apart from the fresh air and sandy beaches, there are few distractions to tear us away from our computer screens. Perhaps that’s why we prefer the variety and interest of creating a range of smaller, useful, quick-to-make apps, rather than long-drawn-out marathon projects.
"Everything should be as simple as possible....
....but not simpler"
love to code...
we code and test everything ourselves
- no unsupervised buggy code factories for us....
....we pick the best coding language for the job. The snippet above is from our "pic-n-clic" app, written in the C# language.
apps that are easy to use....
....that you want to use
