Decoded at the National Railway Museum this February half term

Take a step into the clever world of coding at the National Railway Museum’s future-focused February half term, with robots, dancing, toys and stories. Discover how we needn’t be scared of words like “data” and “coding” with fun and free hands-on activities that break down these concepts and build confidence.

TECH ON THE TRACKS
Get to grips with high-tech toys in this introduction to the basics of tangible coding on the train tracks, run by Technology in Play.

FLUX DANCE
Create code through movement in this dance workshop which teaches you the 10 key words of coding.

ROBOT RAILWAYS
Take charge of a small robot to find out how technology can be used to change and improve our railways.

STORYTELLING
Technology in Play are taking over storytime with their Code-a-pillar. Use code to tell this clever critter where it needs to go, bringing a new twist on well-known early-years stories.

PASSENGER GO
Think like a train in this interactive game, where a roll of the dice throws up problems to solve.

MORE FUN—AND FOOD, TOO: Head out to South Yard for a Steam Ride or a rumble along our Miniature Railway. There’s also the super-speedy Mallard Experience and the Road Train to take you to and from York Minster.
