Event description

Description

Makers and Creators is coming to READING!

Thanks to the Sage Foundation, we'll be running a FREE 5-day programme for 8 - 16 year olds in coding, robotics and electronics during the summer holidays. There will be volunteer mentors from Sage on-hand to help and support you in creating your own project which you will showcase at our Show and Tell at the end of the week. It's up to you if you want to build your project as part of a team, or if you want to go it alone - either way there will be plenty of people to help you out.

Throughout the week we'll be exploring BBC Micro:bits and Raspberry Pi's, as well as learning how to hack Minecraft using python!

What do I need to know?

An understanding of drag & drop programmes, as well as python coding.

What do I need to bring?

- Tech for Life will provide laptops for all attendees. We will also issue USB sticks so that projects can be taken home

- Lunch isn't provided so you will need to bring a packed lunch with you.
