Event description

Description

Come and join us on Saturday 23rd September 2017 at the School of Computer Science & Informatics for a "Family Jam" as part of National Coding Week, an event designed to get families involved in tech and inspire the next generation of software engineers.

The event will include learning session & workshops, and ‘show and tell’ presentations covering Scratch, Python and wearable tech with prizes available for the best and most innovative solutions and goodie bags for all!

The aim of the event is to help encourage families to work together to develop their problem-solving, communication and team working skills, whilst at the same time informing them of the range of possibilities that a career in computer science, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) more generally, can offer.

Families from across Wales can register to attend the event at the National Software Academy in Newport to share in the ‘tech’ experience and develop new skills.

The participants will be encouraged to use a range of methods to create software to meet several challenges, and will be judged on how original the creation is, and how effectively it has been designed with a target audience in mind.
