We’re here to support teachers, parents and anyone who loves computer science with our variety of ‘unplugged’ playful computing* activities that use everyday household objects, so grab the playdough and dust off that jigsaw!
*Unplugged computing is the collective noun given to activities that are designed to teach computational thinking skills, computing concepts, procedures and processes without the use of any digital technology. For example, activities may make use of resources such as playing cards, string and playdough.
We feel incredibly privileged to be supported by passionate and generous industry partners, who have enabled us to reach thousands of pupils across the UK and make our vision of bridging the gap between education and industry a reality.
We’re thrilled to finally reveal One Minute Mentor, our new careers resource which aims to inspire pupils with the breadth of roles available in the creative digital sector through punchy, digestible videos hosted on our YouTube channel.
