Festival of Code is now Fully Booked
Mentor registration still open
Monday 1st - Thursday 4th August
10 am until 4pm
Following on from the success of last year we will again be running a Festival of Code at Wapping High School. The event is for children aged 8 - 18.
During the week children will be supported by industry mentors to build computer programs, computer games and websites, combining their amazing technical skills with the power of open data to solve real world problems and improve their communities. The event will culminate on Thursday afternoon with an opportunity to showcase what they have built to parents, mentors, press, industry and expert judges.
Festival of Code is run entirely by volunteers. It is not a taught event but rather an opportunity for enthusiastic youngsters to improve their computer programming and graphic design skills under the guidance of industry experts. Complete beginners as well as confident coders and designers are all welcome. The event will also provide the opportunity for children to gain confidence working alongside adults and learn more about possible careers in the fields of engineering and technology. By working together and sharing knowledge, participants will validate their digital skills, learn about teamwork and communication.
Festival of Code is being supported by Founders and Coders, Ladies of Code and The Whitechapel Gallery. If you would like to volunteer as a mentor please complete the registration form.
