Harry’s amazing Pixel Graphics sprites!

Harry & Bernie talk about Educraft’s PIXEL GRAPHICS workshop that was held in Northop Hall, North East Wales on 21st August 2021.

PIXEL GRAPHICS is a workshop for kids and parents that offers a gentle introduction to computer programming. Participants sketch out characters on graph paper, then use simple mathematics (addition) to convert the picture into ‘computer code’ that can then be displayed, moved and animated across the screen.

In this particular workshop we are using genuine BBC Micro Computers from the 1980s – the original educational computer in the UK.

There was also a freeplay gaming session at the end, where participants enjoyed classic arcade games on the BBC Computer such as Frogger, Pac-Man and Space Invaders.
