What is a Computational Thinking Workshop?

At our Computational Thinking Workshop one of our trained volunteers will introduce you to the Barefoot website and guide you through our fantastic range of lesson plans and resources.

During the interactive session, you will give some of Barefoot’s “unplugged” activities a try – proving you don’t need expensive kit to teach computing. The workshop will also introduce key computer science concepts and approaches.
