Really important bit about laptops
Please bring your own laptop. Everyone needs to bring a laptop and their charging cable. The following computers work well: Chromebook, Mac, Windows, Linux. Do not bring tablets because they will not work. Regardless of the kind of laptop used, it must have the ability to plugin a USB “type A” plug – these are the most common type of USB plugs and it’s how the Makey Makey is connected to a computer. Some new laptops don’t accept a USB type A plug so the user must supply their own adaptor (“dongle”).NOTE: If you have a school issued laptop please check with your IT people to make sure your laptop will work with a Makey Makey!

Lunch options
Waterloo station is full of snack places, Benugo upstairs, M&S downstairs, outside the station there are Sainsbury’s and Tesco types of mini-supermarket.
