Southend Tech – Minimu Glove Camp

Southend Tech – Minimu Glove Camp 11 August 2020

Building on the success of the Essex Steamettes wearable tech course for girls Southend Tech are running a 6 week online Summer Camp on gesture based wearable tech which is open to all. 


The online sessions are free to attend for all but you will require a Micro:bit and MiniMu glove to take part. The camp will deliver 10 lessons with accompanying ezines using the MiniMu glove kit designed by MiMu and Pimoroni.


Kitronik sells the Micro:bit kit for £15 or libraries lend Micro:bits for free. This link has details on how to buy one from Pimoroni.

Southend Tech are also running some Raspberry Jam activities and are looking for people to give talks, show their projects and run tech workshops. Contact Southend Tech if you would like to participate.
