Wow! What a great way to lead into our ‘Hour of Code’ with the whole Junior School. After a very successful event last year I decided to run it again this year. Megan arranged for the wonderful author, Samantha Turnbull to come to visit our girls and inspired from her new book she made Binary Code Bracelets with them….woohoo….perfect feed into ‘Hour of Code’.

Inspired from Samantha Turnbull’s book ‘The Anti-Princess Club; Cruise Control’, apart from the story proving to the gamers that girls can compete and win…… it has plenty of activities to inspire ‘making’!
In preparation for the up-coming event I sent out an email outlining the date, venue and timetable.
Below are some of the instruction sheets for the ‘unplugged’ activities planned.
