Day 1 - Introduction to Programming
We begin with a gentle introduction to programming in Python, one of the most popular and favoured languages for beginners. For experts already acquainted with Python however, we have additional challenges to test your abilities to the extreme.
Day 2 - Introduction to Game Development & Artificial Intelligence
We then venture into the world of gaming and artificial intelligence, opening up avenues to create anything your mind can imagine. What awaits is for you to discover the endless possibilities of the technology that will shape our future.
Day 3 - Introduction to Microbits
Today we make a jump from the everyday gadgets of phones to gaming consoles to leap into the world of a tiny computer known as the Microbit, as we build our very own mini console.
Day 4 - Introduction to Web Development
And so, we come to the invisible network that ties everything together - the web. Uncover the true colours of a website behind its pages, pictures and links, as we guide you through all the nooks, crannies and secrets of web design.
Day 5 - Introduction to Security
The first thing that may come to mind when you hear ‘cybersecurity’ is an image of a hooded figure clacking away at a keyboard in a dark room. But today, we will challenge this idea by showing you the reality of cybersecurity; all the necessary tools of the trade, and juicy secrets you could ever wish for.
