Code-breaking is Byte-sized

Christmas Bytes
Christmas Bytes

The National Museum of Computing is hosting special Christmas Bytes sessions starting this week.

From Sunday to Wednesday, digital fun and games will rule with robots on hand to play with, and even program.

You’ll see the latest in virtual reality and learn how to turn your smartphone into a virtual reality device.

Lego fans can create their own animations and there will be workshops in arduino.

SoundBytes will let you tune in and mix it up with digital sounds, you can try your hand at coding, and step back in time to see friends of the Enigma and learn about code-breaking.

The sessions run every afternoon, midday to 5pm, and there’s a second helping between Christmas and New Year, running December 27 to 30.

> We have already mentioned Frosts real ice rink, which has been encouraging folks to get their skates on for the past couple of weeks now, but the fun continues through to the new year, so there is still lots of time to get involved.

After a frankly tragic attempt at staying upright in the past, we will be staying away, but that’s good news for you!

Tomorrow the Woburn Sands based rink will be hosting a special Disco on Ice, with complimentary mulled wine for the grown-ups and glow sticks for the kids. Tickets are £14.99 each and there is unlimited skating between 7pm and 10pm.

Go get dizzy with it!
