Month: March 2017
Grateful thanks to Brian Davison, Lecturer and Teaching Fellow at Ednburgh Napier University School of Computing and his team of students, including project managers Kyle and Cristian, for leading exciting robotics sessions for all three P5 classes on Tuesday 28th March, ahead of their Edinburgh International Science Festival event.
Come and meet the team and try out the wonderful range of computing activities for free on 11th and 12th April at the National Museum!
Tuesday 11 — Wednesday 12 April
Come and see what happens when you get creative with technology! Get hands-on with mobile robots, play games and have a go at a bit of programming. These interactive exhibits developed by students from Edinburgh Napier University will make you think… and laugh. Are they visions of the future, or just flights of technical whimsy? You decide…
