Our inaugural event took place on 28th and 29th May 2013 at the Priory Court Community Centre in Walthamstow, London. It was a free event and aimed at 14-18 year olds.
The first day looked at the principles of coding and logic flow, plus there was the chance to explore Scratch and see what it can do. The next day, working in small groups, the participants built a creative project using the software, with fab prizes for the best.
Coaching and feedback was provided throughout from our team of experienced digital professionals.
Post event opportunities
Following the event the young people were be encouraged to join our online forum to take advantage of future opportunities. These may include future hackjam.it events, Q&As with professionals, competitions and work experience opportunities.
