> Want to be a Coding Super Hero?

Are you aged 15 to 18 and interested in a career in software development? Join us for a 4 day experience at Liskeard, working in a software development team on an exciting project.

Whatever your level of experience our team of mentors are there to support and help you, giving you a taste of what a career in Software Development is like.

If you are already a Star Coder, that’s great. We will use your skills and help prepare you for your first software development job.

If you have never written any software before, don’t worry, that’s great too. We’ll show you how it’s done and get you started on your journey to becoming a Coding Super Hero

> The Project Mission to Mars

Meet our Robots, Bert and Ernie. Your task will be to write the software that will allow these robots to safely explore a remote environment.

Bert-and-Ernie

Using a combination of basic electronics, Raspberry Pis and Arduinos, you will learn and use Agile tools and techniques to create some great software that will enable the robots to autonomously explore a hostile environment.

> The Experience

But I don’t know how to code!
As long as you are motivated to explore the world of software development, it doesn’t matter! We have a team of mentors to introduce you to coding whilst working within a team!

How is it free?
The experience is being funded through Cornwall College, members of Software Cornwall and other sponsors. We also have industry experts from Bluefruit, Microtest and MyMediaLab working as volunteers.

What will I learn?

You will be part of a team of 4, working alongside other teams with the aim of building a working autonomous robot. You will learn about:

SCRUM
Raspberry Pi
Linux
Arduino
Programming in C
Git Source Control
Basic Electronics
Team Working
