Islington Summerversity 2015

Posted by editor in Tech, Young People

This summer Dragon Hall Tech Team has been out and about taking technology to 3 different venues in Islington – Spectrum, The Zone and Platform. We showcased 3D Printing, coding, virtual reality, electro-dough and lots more. In addition we ran longer sessions in 3D printing and coding using Minecraft on the Raspberry Pi.

Here are a few comments from the young people who came along to the sessions…

“The electric dough activity was really fun and I enjoyed making colourful circuits” – Emerald

“It was more fun than I expected” – Philip

“You can do nearly anything on Minecraft using Raspberry Pi!” – Adam

“I learnt a lot about designing shapes” – Felix
