CLASSROOM VISIT

Calling volunteers!

Can you visit a school during Tech Week?

There are only a few weeks left until Tech Week and many schools would like a local volunteer computing professional to visit them and explain a little about what a career in computing may entail.

 

Here’s how you can help:
  1. Contact your local school to arrange a visit.
  2. Submit details of your activity here. Also, the first 200 registered events get FREE Tech Week merchandise to give to the students.
  3. Visit your local school and show students that computing is a fascinating and rewarding career with limitless options.

WORKSHOP

Want to include a workshop in your visit? Barefoot Computing have kindly provided these materials suitable for primary students.
The activities during Tech Week give students a chance to develop their interest in technology subjects, examine potential career prospects, learn new skills, be creative and, most importantly, have a lot of fun!
Visiting schools is a great way to support and inspire young people in your local area while developing key communication skills.
Don’t forget all of your volunteering activities count towards your CPD credits!
