Newcastle tech HQ Campus North is putting on free digital days for kids in August, a boost for any parent sick of hearing ‘I’m bored’ from their youngsters this summer holiday.
Teenagers aged from 14 to 17 can benefit from spending a week at Code Camp next week (starting Monday 15tth August), learning about various aspects of coding from the experts, getting help and advice from industry mentors, and working on a project they will present at the end of the week.
There’s fun for all the family at Raspberry Pi Day on Saturday 27th August. Children and young people from 5-17 years old can come along (and bring their well behaved adults!) to learn more about Raspberry Pis, have a play around with them and discover the endless possibilities they offer.
All activities for young people and families are free and are part of Campus North’s new Tech for Life initiative which aims to give opportunities to learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programmes, games and more to people of all ages, skills and backgrounds.
Lyndsey Britton, Campus North co-founder, said, “We’re really looking forward to opening our doors to more young people this month. We launched Tech for Life to help make a real difference by encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs, developers, designers and engineers. Code Camp and Raspberry Pi Family Day offer a fantastic way for young people to learn new skills, meet industry experts and have a whole lot of fun while doing so. We’d encourage young people to come along whether they are new to coding or have some experience in it, there’ll be something for everyone.”
