Teacher CPD: an introduction to programming for control of embroidery machines

Location : University of Warwick
Led by :
Helen Luckhurst and Margaret Low, WMG Format : Teacher community event and workshop
Duration : 2 hour event Suitable for: Teachers

Join us at the Computing at School Primary Community meeting on Tuesday 15th October at 4:30pm. This community meeting will begin with a news update for primary and secondary teachers. Then, primary teachers will be introduced to Scratch and useful resources, followed by a workshop on Turtlestitch.

Turtlestitch is a free, easy-to-use platform for writing programs to control embroidery machines. In this workshop, you will learn to write programs that instruct an embroidery machine to stitch a pattern of your own design onto fabric. We will discuss how this can be used in school, giving children an opportunity to use programming for creative purposes.
