About Lab Central

Lab Central is the space to create, learn, collaborate and innovate with new technologies at Redbridge Central Library. People of all ages are invited to: discover and test new technologies, learn programming and 3D modelling skills, experiment with virtual reality, circuits and robots, explore STEAM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) and much more. Check our Youtube channel to see us in action and join our Meetup group to receive email updates on all of our events.

Borrow a micro:bit for free

The micro:bit is a pocket-sized micro-controller that has 25 LEDs that can flash messages and be used to create games and much more using block coding (overlaying Javascript) and Python. It is super easy to get started and now any adult or child from 8 yrs+ can borrow it for free from any Redbridge Library! Remember to bring back you micro:bit on time to avoid paying any late return fines.

Share your skills

We are always looking for volunteers (14 years+) with technical skills to help us deliver an engaging programme of tech activities. Get in contact by emailing to let us know about your skills.
