Lego Crazy Action Contraptions

We have three of these LEGO x Klutz! books now, but this is the best of the lot. All the parts and instructions you need for building the contraptions they mention. There's a science focused one, called Chain Reactions which is also pretty good but that's better for older kids and you need quite a bit of your own lego to make some of it work.

These books have been a godsend during lockdown and has kept the kids entertianed, so much so they are asking us to help them put these things together.

We've succeeded in keeping the pieces together but they're quite good for just experimenting with too. All the gears, sticks and rubber bands you need to get started.

They have a fourth book coming out in October which we'll get for sure.

A Class Divided

A thought provoking look at discrimination that should be mandatory viewing. Channel 4's 'The School That Tried to End Racism' is another one.

I Asked 64,182 People About “Jingle Bells, Batman Smells”. Here's What I Found Out.

This video provided a lot of laughs for us last night. My personal recollection of of the song is:

Jingle bells, Batman smells,
Robin laid an egg,
The Batmobile lost a wheel,
And the Joker got away... hey!

I even owned a t-shirt that was based on this version of the song.

Charlie Brooker's Antiviral Wipe

Some much needed comedy relief for the crazy time we're living in.

In this one-off special, Charlie Brooker returns to our screens for the first time since his Bafta-winning 2016 Wipe to take a look at life under lockdown.

As well as coverage of the crisis itself, Charlie also explores what the public have been watching to while away the hours.

The production value is great, despite being filmed at home. It was a great job from all involved. Available for another 29 days on BBC's iPlayer, go watch it if you haven't already.

The A-Z of AI

Beautiful website that spells out the different aspects of Artificial Intelligence in plain English. Put together by the Oxford Internet Institute and Google, it's pretty, interactive and most importantly, it's fast. You don't even need to click through to see more detail, the short descriptions are enough to give you an idea of what the phrase means in the world of AI.
