Event description

Description

Makers and Creators is BACK! Thanks to the Sage Foundation, we'll be running our 5-day programme for 8 - 16 year olds in coding, robotics and electronics during the October half-term 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 Code Monsters Maker Party on Saturday 28th October. 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.

***PLEASE NOTE*** Our October programme will include similar content to the previous Makers and Creators programme, as this time around there will be a main focus on making a working project to showcase and be part of our Code Monsters event on Saturday 28th October. If your child has previously attended, please bear this in mind.
