WORMS!

Free

Do you remember the timeless and classic game Worms? Maybe you’ve played it in our Toast Bar? Did you know it was made in Nottingham? As a show of affection to our wormy comrades we will host some actual real life worms (and their handlers) as part of Nottingham’s Festival of Science and Curiosity.

The Urban Worm will be here showing you how to create and earthworm farm in a tiny space and transform kitchen waste back into earth.

Nottingham University will bring their Worms In Space practical experiments to discover what effect space travel would have on worms.

If you’ve mastered Scratch and are ready to move onto learning a coding language, DevClub Python could be for you!

This 10 week course focuses on Games Design using Python, a widely used general purpose, high-level programming language. Participants should be competent with Scratch or another programming language, and willing to work hard to develop their skills in a text-based language.

Python is a good next-step from Scratch, acting as a middle ground before you move onto languages such as HTML and JavaScript.
