Throughout the day, we’ll be running Coding Workshops covering topics such as Scratch, Web Development, Java, Python and electronics such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi. We have workshops that are suitable for complete beginners to advanced coders. These will take place in the computer labs of LIT so you don’t need to bring a laptop with you.
For young people who already attend a Dojo, we have two competitions. The Scratchathon challenges kids to create a game or animation using the Scratch programming tool. The Hackathon is for young people aged 12+ who will use their coding skills to solve a problem. Teams in both competitions have a few hours to complete their project and present it to a team of judges.
We’ll also have several guest speakers on the day taking about topics such as Game Development, Data, Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence. While all that’s going on, there will be a tech showcase featuring tech companies showing off their cool tech and how they use it everyday.
It promises to be a great family day 🙂
