A drop-in-when-you-can Turtlestitching workshop from 10:00 to 17:00 this Thursday 19 October in room 0.11 in the Lloyd Institute at TCD. Turtlestitch is a jigsaw-programming environment for creating embroideries from code. Bring your brain, a laptop or tablet, something material you’d like to embroider on, and you can use my programmable embroidery machine to stitch your own design. I have thread in primary colours, metallic, luminous and conducting (bring your own LEDs / batteries). Halloween themes may be creatively fruitful! ‘something you’d like to embroider on’ could mean anything from a small square to a t-shirt or hoody. I’d humbly suggest not something too precious in case it all goes wrong. There is no set start or stop time, but just to make some kind of order out of chaos, I’ll do an introduction on the hour, starting at 11:00 (assuming anyone turns up!). If you’d like to start now: www.turtlestitch.org And no need to RSVP, but let me know if you are coming!

Are you a teacher looking to introduce code into the classroom? Join Wriggle at the Midlands Science Festival on the 12th of November for a day of coding on our Wriggle Roadcaster. On the day you'll be introduced to Sphero Edu an app for programming Sphero, a robotic ball. Discover how you can go beyond code by incorporating unique STEAM activities to create a complete classroom lesson. You'll hear about Swift Playgrounds, a revolutionary app for iPad that makes learning code interactive and fun for students and teachers. Finally, you'll be introduced to Micro:bit. A pocket-sized computer that has 25 red LED lights that can flash messages and be used to programme and create games and lessons. We have two sessions but spaces are limited. Register now to avoid missing out on this great day of coding with Wriggle!
