“Delivering the computing curriculum in a local primary school I identified the National Curriculum makes no mention of how Britain entered the computing age. Initially wanting to plan a class visit to the centre for computing history museum of Cambridge logistics of costs,time and distance proved to be inpractical from my school in Lancashire.”

“The CODE Show and my vision was born.”

“With over 300 machines and my passion i believe i can offer schools an affordable and alternative experience in their own setting, providing the whole school with a day of learning and hands on experiences. Lets celebrate how Britain entered the computing age via the bedrooms of children in the 1980’s and together inspire a new generation of learners”.

My Offer to your School

“I believe, I am one of the first in the UK to be able to cater for every school.

I don’t run on a traditional format and can structure the computing workshop to suit the needs of your school.

Having hundreds of machines to choose from, enables me to match just about any format or criteria you wish.

I cover the whole of the UK  no school is too far my mission is every school and every child.I firmly believe location should not be a barrier to children’s learning experiences.”
