Want to teach kids how to code?

logoThere is an exciting event (lets face it everything is exciting to me) taking place at Madlab next month for anyone who is interested in working with Yong People to give them the digital skills and creativity they are going to need. Advisors will be there to tell us how we can apply for the Digital Makers Fund.  

From robots to Raspberry Pi, hackdays to summers of code, more and more young people are creating with technology. But how can we inspire, involve and support a generation of digital makers?

OmniUniversity Launches in Manchester

Omniuniversity
The MadLab has been one of the country's most successful hack and creative digital culture spaces, attracting thousands of visitors to the region and bringing in national and international talent to lead free workshops and events.

Every evening is double- booked with free community-driven events around open platforms and professional development. Building off the back of this success, and the huge network they've built, they're offering the Omniversity - an expert-lead series of training programmes, designed to be affordable and lead by industry veterans and in-the-trenches professionals, rather than full-time tutors. We'll be teaching people platforms from the near-future, without the cost overheads that more formalised training providers impose.

This brings us nicely to the course of the Internet of Things...
