Title:

Young Rewired State

Description:

Young Rewired State is a network of software developers and designers aged 18 and under.

It is the philanthropic arm of Rewired State and its primary focus is to find and encourage young children and teenagers who are driven to teaching themselves how to code and how to program the world around them. The aim is to create a worldwide, independent, mentored network of young programmers supported and supporting through peer-to-peer learning. Ultimately solving real-world challenges.

The Festival of Code is Rewired State's annual celebration of everything code. It occurs all over the UK every year in the first full week of August, and ends with a long weekend at the Custard Factory in Birmingham (UK), with everybody coming together for a weekend of showcasing the amazing achievements created during the week. Expect talks from fascinating and influential people, pizza, as well as games and table tennis.

It is the best way to get to know how we work and to become a part of the community, whether as a young person, mentor or host centre.

The National Museum of Computing acts as a centre for a YRS 'team' each year. This year we expect between 10 and 20 young people to meet at TNMoC and begin their climb to the weekend of coding.
