This post has been written by Harper, 7 who is in primary school and attended our ‘Summer Fun with Oracle Academy & Stemettes’ event on 23 June 2018.

After that, you have icebreakers which are  REALLY FUN !!! Then you CODE !!!!! At the Oracle hack, we used an app called Alice 3 and it was really […]

This post has been written by Eden, 8 who is at primary school and attended our ‘Stemettes Rise Hack #2‘ event on 22 & 23 August 2018. I am Eden and I am 8 years old.

So, at 10am in the centre of a huge white tent on the Olympic Park, we began our hack. Girls, parents and volunteers began the day playing […]

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 […]
