CodeBug at MakeFest Manchester

Last weekend CodeBug made its home in the spectacular Power Hall at the Museum of Science and Industry for Manchester’s annual MakeFest.

The two day event saw hundreds of children (and some adults!) scroll their names across CodeBug, while learning how to code.

Visitors to the festival also got the chance to play with our two big CodeBugs (known as the twins) which are controlled by regular CodeBugs! They also experimented with projects made with CodeBug, such as the Dial-A-Star which you can control the colour of using the three potentiometer dials.

Thank you to the MakeFest team, all the museum’s staff and everyone who helped make the weekend such a success.
