Inspire 21st-century tech engineers in Cornwall. New Stretch target £5000

by softwarecornwall in Cornwall

New stretch target

We are stretching our target to £5000!! All funding beyond our initial minimum target to buy and scale our kit for future missions will help us to run additional missions, events and activities to inspire the next generation of engineers in Cornwall - please keep pledging the more we raise the more we can add to our programme!

Fund more kit like Raspberry Pi's, arduinos, robots, books, team shirts, materials and the resources needed to run and scale more learn to code events in Cornwall

Fund exhibitions and workshops at careers fairs and events across Cornwall

Help develop wider learn to code resources and information on career pathways in Cornwall and support our volunteers

 Thank you for your support, with your help, the more we raise the more future engineers we can inspire and help onto a positive career pathway in Cornwall 

This campaign is just the beginning ..

Software Cornwall has a potential full programme of events and activities to support careers development and education in the digital sector in Cornwall over the coming years with high aspirations that we are actively seeking support for. 


 

UPDATE ! We are stretching our target to £5000!! All funding beyond our initial minimum target will help us to run additional missions, events and activities to inspire the next generation of engineers in Cornwall - please keep pledging the more we raise the more we can add to our programme!  

 

Join us on a Mission to Mars (M2M). We need your help to increase our training resources and the number of students (11+) we can reach.

M2M offers students hands-on experience programming a robot 'destined' for Mars. Applying theory, developing skills, and working in teams to define the Rover's logic. Can you automate it?

 

 

M2M simulates a real project with a series of objectives, budget constraints, and virtual contract to be won. Run during school holidays, we currently have kit and resource to for 12 students. We're looking to expand this to 40+.

 

 

 M2M helps:

  • teach computer science and IT skills. 
  • offer practical ways to develop skills and gain experience
  • raise awareness of digital tech careers in Cornwall

 

 

The initial £1500 target enable us to reach our 40 student goal. All additional funding will be used to run more events, and further increase our resources and capacity.

 

 

 We are always looking for mentor and location volunteers. Please get in touch, via the Software Cornwall Website, if you'd like to get involved. A recent mentor blogged his experience here.
