July 27th – August 2nd 2015

Did you know that Elder Studios and The Media Centre is a registered centre for Young Rewired State’s Festival of Code 2015. Young Rewired State is a global coding community for digital makers aged 18 and under. Every August they run the largest annual hack event in the world.

Following on from the great success of the Code Club week we ran in May earlier this year, Elder Studios are inviting more young people to come and join them over the summer holidays for the Festival of Code 2015.

Young people can spend the week meeting new people and building cool projects. Team up and invent unique ideas to create a website, app, game, algorithm or hardware hack using open data. The festival is not just a fun experience, it also helps to grow confidence, develops skills and generates lots of opportunities that improve and inform their future. By working together and sharing knowledge, young people can validate their digital skills and learn about teamwork and communication.

So, whether you’re a young digital maker, a prospective mentor or an intrigued volunteer, you’d be mad to miss out on the Festival of Code 2015!
