At every event we try to provide a new coding tutorial aimed at beginners. Typically these are done classroom-style, away from the main show-and-tell area, with several identical Raspberry Pis and two pupils per machine. We also have a number of prepared SD cards for those pupils who wish to bring their own Raspberry Pis to the tutorial.
Places are prioritised for children first. If the main tutorial is oversubscribed, then we also run additional one-on-one or small group tutorials in the show-and-tell area.
