Calling all Minecraft fans…..come and explore, play and discover the exciting world of Minecraft! Once the basics have been mastered, youngsters will go on to learn how to build and program virtual working machines in Minecraft using a range of advanced blocks including Redstone - then put their new found knowledge to the test to solve spy themed challenges and competitions. (Suitable for children aged 8-14)

During Summer of Spies workshops, participants will enter into the world of spies and espionage and take part in group activities themed around cyber-attacks, spy bots and code challenges. To take part you don’t have to be a qualified spy, as all secret agents training will be given on the day by our undercover professionals from Tablet Academy.

There will be two sessions running each day, morning workshops are aimed at those who are just discovering espionage for the first time, whilst afternoon sessions are geared towards youngsters who are more familiar with coding (including those who completed the morning session), so they can build on their skills
