Happy Birthday CoderDojo BCO

2013-02-17 12.08.57

Today we celebrated the 1st Birthday of CoderDojo BCO.
Ruth and her mum Aileen very kindly made a very special cake to mark the occasional which we celebrated in with our friends in CoderDojo CIX over Skype.

Well done to all the mentors, parents and especially all the brightsparks who have worked so hard this year.

Here’s to many more!

p.s. Needless to say the cake didn’t last long

The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

feynman

Richard Feynman (May 11, 1918 – February 15, 1988) was an American physicist noted for making advances in quantum mechanics. His involvement in the Manhattan Project as well as the investigation panel for the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster are some of the highlights in a long and distinguished career.

However it is Feynman’s personality and zest for learning and understanding which has cemented his legacy as a cult figure among the scientific community and popular science enthusiasts alike.

Feynman’s unique outlook on the world is a lesson to us all.
