Have you got what it takes to keep a busy road safe!?

We’ve teamed up with Minecraft to recreate the Lower Thames Crossing as games. In aid of STEM Clubs Week, we would like to welcome you to take part in a live code along session playing one of our Minecraft games - Speed Safety.

Using Make Code, you will be managing road signs to respond to different events, including flooding and animals on the road and will have the chance to programme an in-game agent as if it were a car.

In the games, you will also have the chance to explore the range of STEM jobs and skills used to build a large infrastructure project.

*To take part you will need to undertake a training session taking place on Tuesday 14 June from 4-5pm virtually on Microsoft Teams. This will provide an opportunity to find out what is required on the day in terms of set-up and to see how the game works to ensure on the day the Code Along Live goes as smoothly as it can.

We at the STEM Hub are working with Lower Thames Crossing on this activity in addition with the support of local Computing Hub based at Maidstone Grammar School for Girls.
