Young people, parents, mentors and invited guests gathered at Barton Hill Settlement on Saturday to celebrate everyone’s achievements over the year.
Key to our events is bringing young people from across our 14 clubs together to share their passion for tech and coding. As part of our LINKS progression system, we require young people to showcase their work to their peers. This builds confidence as well as reaffirming their achievements.
Our events are also opportunities for our volunteer mentors to gather and share ideas and experiences. Being a volunteer can be a lonely experience, even if you’re volunteering with someone else (all our clubs have two DBS cleared volunteers).
We also showcased some robotic equipment that we are trying out with Rhubarb World. These desktop industrial robots use a similar coding language to Scratch so integrate nicely into our content provision.
Of course the focus of the day are the young people.
