Has your young tinkerer ever wondered how the tiny computers in things like smartwatches work? Then they won't want to miss out on our virtual micro:bit computer coding workshop!

The micro:bits workshop includes a micro:bit computer shipped to you and a 1 hour workshop with an Imagination Station Tinkerer via Zoom.
