The programme offers:
A suite of video guides will be developed to enable the young people continue to practice and develop their programming skills in the longer term.
- Taster activities at introductory level outdoors in summer using a mix of engineering, technology and problem solving to build interest and skills.
- Followed by a week-long programme in autumn to enable them to create and design products /3D models with technologies available to them in their local library.
