Would any of the young people you work with be interested in taking part in an exciting digital skills project?
Funded by SDS, the Glasgow Digital Makers project aims to develop a new generation of young Glaswegians with digital skills by recruiting 100 young people aged 14-17 from across Glasgow who face barriers to getting involved in digital making.
The young people will come to the Science Centre and spend a day-long “masterclass” session working with staff from CoderDojo Scotland and industry mentors. They’ll learn about programming using a variety of tools including Raspberry Pi device (a miniature computer). The young people will all be gifted a new Raspberry Pi device at the end of the session.
At the end of March we’ll hold a showcase event at the Science Centre at which the young people will cascade their new knowledge via poster presentations and demonstrations to pupils from invited schools plus guests (friends, family, local technology businesses, interested academics).
Would any of the young people you work with be interested in taking part in the project? There is no charge to take part and we would be able to provide transport to and from the Science Centre if necessary.
