In partnership with Pimoroni and Huawei, Open UK have launched the “Open UK Digital Kids Summer Camp”, an opportunity for 3000 kids to get hands-on with micro:bit and the MiniMU Glove Kit, the kit made by Pimoroni with Helen Leigh and Imogen Heap.
The camp features a course which consists of 10 animated lessons that are 10 minutes long. In each lesson, participants of the camp will take part in a range of fun activities with the MiniMU Glove Kit and the micro:bit. OpenUK provided 3000 kits to kids in the UK for free in order for the competition to go ahead.
The lessons are also free of charge for anyone to access on the OpenUK Kids Camp youtube channel, so if you have a MiniMU glove already and are wanting to take part in the activities this is a a great way to do so! Alongside the videos is an Ezine with articles from members of the OpenUK and micro:bit communities. These provide insights into how to get starting with programming and industry tips from leaders such as David Whale, Femi Owolade-Coombes and many more.
