Coming: Verktøykassen

BEK 21.02.2019 31.05.2019


Verktøykassen (the toolbox) is BEK’s new meeting place for learning about and test out technical tools, may it be hardware or software. There is a low threshold for participation and a high hands-on factor. Game developer and programmer Stian Remvik is leading Verktøykassen, which will take place approximately every 3 weeks throughout the spring. For each time a new “theme of the day” will be announced, and participants can also come with inputs or questions that are raised jointly. 

The first Verktøykasse will take place on February 21. – 22. with the theme micro:bit.

The BBC micro:bit is a handheld, programmable micro-computer that can be used for all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments. It can be coded from any web browser in Blocks, Javascript, Python, Scratch and more; no software required. Here is the link to get started.

Verktøykassen is open for everyone. Time and further details will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
