Under 18s invited to week-long programming at The National Museum of Computing
The National Museum of Computing is one of the twelve national venues hosting this year's Young Rewired State from 1-5 August 2011.
The week long ‘hack event’ offers under 18s and aspiring web developers a free-of-charge opportunity to build their own web apps, visualisations and projects using open government data and with mentoring from developers. At the end of the week, all the projects will be presented to press, government and industry at a prestigious event in London, where judges will award prizes.
"This is a real opportunity for teenagers to get something rather special on their CV or portfolio", says Chris Monk, Learning Co-ordinator at The National Museum of Computing.
“Whether you are already a programmer or newly creating your own web pages, give the event a try. Bring your laptop and join others programming close to Colossus, the world’s first digital computer, and other amazing icons of the digital age. It’s the coolest place imaginable to create your own software.”
