#CASWalkabout Programme:

  • 6.45-7.15pm Meet & greet in the Energy Cafe (Level 0, next to the gift shop) where we'll share news of events, projects, resources etc. to support #Computing in school and #DigitalMaking. Photo. It'll give a chance for some to grab a drink or byte to eat. If you have something cool to share, please bring it with you - but make sure it will pass the security checks at the entrance!
  • 7.15-9.00pm Walkabout - We'll wander around together, explore the different talks, activities and demonstrations throughout the evening and recommend the best to the others. If you refer to the Science Museum programme released a day or two beforehand, you can see what's on offer. Highlights:
  • Voltaic Piles Did you know coins and vinegar can make a battery? Try it out and make one for yourself. Then take it home and start to power your home free of charge
  • The Road to Conscious Machines Countless movies, novels and computer games have enthralled—and terrified—us with the prospect of conscious machines. But what is the reality of artificial intelligence today, and what might be possible in the future? Michael Wooldridge, author of a new book in the Ladybird Expert series, tells all and will be signing books in the Wonderlab Shop from 21.00
  • 9pm Departure - the Science Museum event will be open until 10pm, but some of our group usually leave around 9pm or earlier as it's a school day next day and some have trains to catch home.

Important: This is an 18+ only event and is an independently organised by CAS Master Teacher and Hub Leader Alan O'Donohoe and friends. Our meeting is neither organised by, nor endorsed by the Science Museum, London. If you arrive before doors open at 6.45pm, you'll need to join the lengthy queue on Exhibition Road. By registering here a group of people with an interest in Computing education can meet up inside and share relevant ideas, inspiration and resources. Peruse through our photo albums from previous events to give you a flavour of what to expect:

Background: On the last Wednesday of every month (except December), the Science Museum London closes at 6pm and then re-opens again from 6.45pm until 10:00pm for "Lates", an evening packed full of talks, demonstrations and hands-on activities. 

CAS: Computing At School is a community twith many volunteer members that provides support, leadership and strategic guidance to all those involved in Computing education in schools. [More here]

Walkabout: There is a packed programme of talks, activities and demonstrations throughout the evening (all organised by the Science Museum). Just a few days before the event you can download the programme from the Lates page. By meeting up together as a group, we can explore the most relevant activities together and share the best bits among our group throughout the evening.  

Cancellations: It really doesn't matter if you sign up, and then can't attend. As long as you don't cancel your registration, you'll be invited to future events.
