Merry Minecraft and Christmas code cracking

28th November 2017

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.

Workshops are suitable for children aged 8-14 and run from 9.30am to 4.00pm and to take part you don’t have to be an expert, as the professionals from Tablet Academy will be on hand to assist and give advice to those just starting out in the world of Minecraft.

Parents are welcome to stay or they can take advantage and do their Christmas Shopping in peace, rest assured that participants will be supervised by qualified teachers from Tablet Academy and supported by the experienced learning team at the Museum.

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, visit to book your place.
