BeatBlocks LIVE - EdSciFest 2024

With support from Creative Informatics BeatBlocks featured at a number of events at this year's International Science Festival. We hope you got a chance to check out our new Lego music play station at the National museum as part of the 'Power of Data' exhibition or at one of the museum lates or Science festival parties.  We've even invested in cupholders for the play station, so bring on the next party! Glasgow, for the Scottish AI alliance I think. See you there. 

Support -Skoog users

Following the sad announcement that after more than 14 years Skoog is officially closing its doors, we want to keep all of the Skoog players out there playing, so in the short term at least, the team at Playable will do our best to help where we can. SUPPORT
