You are invited to our Family Hack Jam at Park Community School, Barnstaple.
The aim of this Family Hack Jam event is to bring together friends, families and teachers to discover the fun, excitement and power of computer science, through an enjoyable, team-based problem-solving evening.
We invite you to join us and up to 50 other children, adults and teachers from a range of ages and experience levels for an evening of family fun, competition and games. Please note that children under 14 must be supervised by an adult.

8.00pm-8.30pm Show & tell.
Participants: We want you to form a mixed-age team with your friends & family to take on our Hack Jam Challenge. It really doesn't matter if you can code or not - we will teach you everything you need to know, and besides - it's not all about coding. There is something for everyone.
Supporters: We're also appealing for any adults with a Computing / computer science background to support this evening event. In particular, we're looking for teachers, lecturers, software developers, web developrs, designers, animators, hardware hackers, makers and engineers to join us.
