Suitability: All ages

BBC Northern Ireland is teaming up with the NI Science Festival for Make it Digital, a fantastic free event in BBC Blackstaff Studios.
Suitable for all ages and family friendly, this free event invites you to get creative with technology as the BBC will open its doors for an interactive hands-on celebration of everything digital. Coding games inspired by BBC favourites like Dr Who and Sherlock will lift the lid on the mysterious world of computer programming with a taste of everything from digital fabrication and gaming to robotics and Raspberry Pi.  Virtual reality, a golf swing simulator and all manner of gadgets and gizmos will offer plenty to interest curious minds.
Inspirational talks, demos and live shows will appeal to young and old. Prepare for flashes and bangs as The Open University presents The Magic of Oxygen and Scientific Sue entertains the crowds with her Technology Rocks show. Discover the technology behind the weather forecast and try presenting your own. Prepare to be challenged and entertained in the STEM Module - a mobile laboratory and workshop equipped with 3D printers, laser cutters and modern light microscopes. 
Can we 3D print a new Belfast? When will the robots take over? Can computer code combat crime? Find out the answers to these and more questions you never thought to ask! 

This is a free event. Many activities are open to everyone on a drop in basis but workshop places need to be booked. Schools are welcome to attend. For further details on the event programme and information on how to book places visit or click the ‘Book Now' button below.
