This link was suggested as a useful resource on control systems.
By the end of the morning, Arthur started to consider that the mathematics might be too involved for him to fully understand. However, you do not need a maths degree to use systems designed by others, and Martin provided Arthur with some Python code to try.
Les continued to improve his barcode scanning game,
Tony was experimenting with Scratch programming https://scratch.mit.edu/
Ricky spent the morning gaming,
