Event description

Description

Calling all 10-16 year olds!

In October you turned up en masse to our #CodeYork Club @ Explore!

You created some cool games, you were awed by our 3d printers and you were inspired by a real life app developer!

Now prepare as we boot up the upgrade:

#CodeTrain!

This March at the National Railway Museum, #CodeTrain steps it up a gear and throws more coal in the coalface (#SteamTrainReferencesFTW!) by:

Challenging you to more advanced code!

Introducing you to the ‘Scratch for Robotics’ software being built right here in York!

Actual Robots! (And their companions!)

And more!

This event is totally free – so get out of bed (half the challenge we know) and get yourself down to the NRM for 10am until 3pm!

See you there!



Competition

The competitions are back for 2016!

In our #ChallengeAccepted competitions, each event will see a series of interesting and different challenges with awesome prizes up for grabs!

Last year we saw tablets, shopping vouchers and even X Factor Final tickets handed out to lucky challenge winners. Will you win this year? Theres only one way to be able to do so...

#ChallengeAccepted #CodeTrain

For our first event of 2016, we’re kicking it off with a bang with a creative exciting challenge for you wannabe vloggers out there!

In order to enter, you have to create a minimum 3 minute video.

  • This can be filmed at the event or after and can include footage from the build up too!
  • It can be filmed on your smartphone!
  • It can be any style you want to film it in!
  • It has to be about the event and your experiences (obviously, otherwise Zoella could enter without turning up – and that’s a tad unfair we think!)
  • and you have to finish the whole thing off by simply saying...

" #CodeYork #Challenge Accepted! ”

When you’ve made your masterpiece then you just have to email it to digitalcity@york.gov.uk with a contact number! Closing date for the competition is Friday 15th April

But wait! What are the prizes for this amazing competition?

We have the latest Raspberry Pi 3 to hand out to one lucky winner!

We have a day’s work experience at a big local developer!

We have Gift cards!

And much more!

#CodeTrain is sponsored by Boundless Networks & The York Rotary Club
