Hendrefoilan Primary School Children Learn to CodePublished on 06 April 2017
Technocamps was asked to help support this club, and we were more than happy to help. One of our ambassadors, Kevin; a Masters of Software Engineering student, now visits the club every Wednesday to help take the club further.
In the sessions that Technocamps are delivering, we are helping to introduce the building blocks that all computer scientists use on a day to day basis. Soon it is hoped that the club will transition over to using the BBC Micro:bit to begin teaching the children how the concepts they have been learning apply to more than just web development.
Recently, the club was featured in the Evening Post.
The 14 students have completed a three-year programme in Applied Software Engineering with the University’s Computer Science department.
Technocamps Annual pan-Wales Programming Competition enables pupils to develop their problem solving, communication and teamwork skills.
