Event description

Description

In partnership with Sage Foundation, Tech for Life are excited to bring you our Makers and Creators Summer Holiday Club. Due to the amazing ability of the children we work with, we've decided to extend the age range for our summer club for 8 - 16 year olds from 7th - 11th August 2017. Throughout the week, you'll have a chance to upskill in coding and electronics, with lots of fun, hands-on activities. There will be volunteer mentors from Sage on-hand to help and support you in creating your own project to showcase 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. And don't worry if you can't think of a project just yet...we're here to give you guidance and support to help get those creative juices flowing!

What do I need to know?

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

What do I need to bring?

- Please bring a laptop along with you to each session. (We have a couple of spare laptops available, but please let us know beforehand and we will try to arrange one for you. These will only be available on a first-come-first basis)
