Cornwall Tech Week will run alongside the global #hourofcode week
Supporting Secondary Schools to teach the new computer engineering curriculum
All are welcome as we will hope to work collaboratively around the county to ensure events for all to try software engineering!
Get involved – if you would like to run an Tech Week event, help support an event, have a venue or have any questions please do get in touch !
Cornwall Tech Week 4-12th December (ish!)
Aim is to have Software events every day during this week to create a buzz about Computing, specifically aimed at helping teachers to adopt the new Computing GCSE and inspiring students into taking it as an option by showing the opportunities in the sector. Also a week for the community with events and meet ups to help us connect and explore innovative technology and opportunities, and raise the profile of tech in Cornwall
