Learn how to program a micro:bit and simulate how infections spread in this hands-on workshop.

Find out how computers work together to solve problems in this hands-on programing workshop. Learn how to program a micro:bit to send and receive messages and simulate how infections are spread. Work together to see how vaccines and medical cures can be used to slow or stop the spread of infections, and see how the UK’s national supercomputer ARCHER2 was used to fight the spread of COVID–19.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
