On the 16th and 17th October, we headed over to the Royal Cornwall Showground near Wadebridge for the Cornwall Skills Show Experience; one of Cornwall’s biggest careers events for young people.
From baking tutorials to theatrical makeup demonstrations, the show was packed with interactive, hands-on activities from over 100 local businesses. We brought along our awesome programmable robot arm, along with the Game of Life LED display and Minecraft running on Raspberry Pis!
