The girls had chosen to come along on their weekend to dabble in the programming world, they spanned across all year groups and they all had differing levels of tech knowledge. Norwich High School are partnered with a school in Ghana and are due to travel to visit them next year, we were tasked with running a hackathon for […]

We’re putting on a Coding Bootcamp for Stemettes who would like to increase their coding skills and maybe even enter a UK coding competition for teens, called YRS Festival of Code. What is YRS?

And this event?  YRS Festival of Code 2014  is a week long event held at local centres […]
