Just a quick little test-time video showing a couple of alternate views of the latest rolling ball sculpture commission. It’s been flawless since I made some adjustments yesterday at noon, which rules! I’m going to get started on the official photos and video soon, so there are some fancied-up images coming!
Today's 'In the Spotlight' is 'Computers & Coding'. I’ve used this recently when showcasing another area but I think it’s so important that kids know this stuff given how computer based our society is.
A colourful and friendly introduction that explains what goes on inside computers, how coding works and how computers talk to each other across the internet. There are flaps to lift on every page show how computers “think”, while activities such as counting in binary and matching numbers to colours explain how they store data. The principles of coding, from simple commands to algorithms, are explained with a treasure hunt game and puzzles, and there are examples of simple programs in the coding language Scratch™. Includes internet links to specially selected websites where children can discover more coding ideas, tips and games.
Computer coding is now a compulsory topic on the UK National Curriculum for primary schools, and children learn to create and debug simple programs at Key Stage 1.

3D printing allows you to create various iterations of a product in just few hours. It’s also much cheaper than ordering prototypes at a manufacturer. Here you can see one of few versions of a tray for tools that ship with ZMorph VX.
Just over 24 hours until our first screening and we’re thrilled to announce Christy De Haven @cdhiom as compere for proceedings. Christy is a Producer/Broadcaster at @manx_radio & Founder of the Isle of Man Film Festival @iomff ,not least, she’s also a recipient of the Ella Olesen scholarship for Idaho University, as is our special guest co-producer and co-director of @generalmagicthemovie Sarah Kerruish. Christy commented: “To have someone of Sarah's stature coming home to present her extraordinary film, as an Emmy-nominated Director who was right at the heart of one of the most important developments in tech, will show how barriers CAN be broken and horizons CAN expand. It will undoubtedly inspire a whole new group of young Islanders to go forth and make strides in STEAM, young people that could well be the Manxies making waves internationally in the future, joining the impressive list of Manx born female Astronomers, Programmers, Neuroscientists, Designers and more. Love Tech should be congratulated on this superb event and I'm delighted to play a small part in it."
