Primary school children will be treated to exciting classes that let them turn their food into power sources.

Children in the Oldham area will get the chance to play with their food soon, as ComputerXplorers is offering exciting coding programmes to mark 2019s British Science Week. The computer franchise has announced its newest Jukebox Joy workshops, which will let children use coding blocks to turn a specially designed micro:bit mini-computer into a jukebox. The most exciting bit of the workshop, though, comes from whats powering the jukebox, as the children will use fruit including oranges, lemons and bananas to make it come alive.

Griffin Cheng at ComputerXplorers explained why the franchise has decided to launch the fun workshops to coincide with British Science Week.

Any parent or teacher will tell you that children learn best when theyre having fun. And we all know that STEM skills such as computer programming are vital for this generation of schoolkids. But their interest often wanes once they hit secondary school. So, were determined to do all we can to ignite childrens enthusiasm at a young age by showing them that computer programming is creative and exciting. Making music with fruit is a great and memorable way to do this.

The Jukebox Joy workshops are aimed at children eight and over and will spread the message of British Science Week by letting them engage with technology in a way thats simple and fun. Theyre part of ComputerXplorers Programming for Primaries Initiative, which has been bringing useful programming and computing skills to primary age children for more than six years. For the last four years, the franchise has held its workshops in conjunction with British Science Week.

ComputerXplorers brings key ICT and computing skills to children across the UK, setting them up for life with the skills they need to succeed in an increasingly digital world.
