     OpenUK have 3000 open sourced MiniMu glove kits to giveaway across the
    UK, to allow kids with a micro:bit to do the OpenUK kids Camp. The kits
    have been paid for by Huawei and Andrew Katz helped MiMu to open source
    the MiniMu glove as part of this process.
    The opensourced kits have both been created for us as a special edition
    and will be distributed by our partner Pimoroni.
    The OpenUK Kids Camp teaches digital skills through a 10 lesson course
    with an ezine accompanying each lesson and will be shared creative commons
    over 3 weeks in August.
    Each episode is a fun, animated episode that teaches digital skills and
    offers activities for kids to participate in and each has one minute about
    an aspect of open source.
    The giveaway is only in the UK, but the Digital Kids Camp will not be
    restricted to the UK and we ar talking to other organisations about the
    possibility of translating it.
    Episode 1 is narrated by Imogen Heap and she explains what open source is.
    Info is at openuk.uk/openkidscamp and this tweet
    It would be great if you could retweet.
    Please feel free to pass this info on to people who may find it of
    All the best
