BBC Make it Digital comes to Cambridge

Big weekend 2015

Cambridge's Big Weekend will host a range of activities from the BBC's Make it Digital campaign on Saturday 11th July, 12pm - 5pm.  

Celebrate the digital past and present from the Morse code to mobile phones. Q&A sessions with BBC presenters and guests. Plus, get interactive using computer science to predict the weather.

Doctor Who
In the Doctor Who zone, you will be transported in to the world of the great Doctor; control and move the Dalek Maze, and play the Dr Who game on iPads and the opportunity to hear from a local sci-fi expert, Sean Lang;

"Few TV programmes have had the impact of the BBC's time travelling Knight Errant, the Doctor. Since his beginnings inside a Police Box in a London scrap yard in 1963, the Doctor and his worlds have survived daleks, cybermen, rubber monster suits, budget cutbacks and even a period off the screen (though never off the radio) to re-emerge in 2005 and grow into a global phenomenon. But what does it mean?  Why has the Doctor enjoyed such success?  What does his story and his wooden box tell us about ourselves and our digital world?"  Dr Sean Lang of Anglia Ruskin University, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire's very own history man, has a theory. So come to hear the Doctor on the Doctor...

Anglia Ruskin University are proud sponsors of the Big Weekend and hope this event will help lots of you get hands-on and creative with coding, programming and have fun with digital technology.
