Event description

Description

Devoxx4Kids is an event run all over the world with the aim of engaging 10 - 16 year olds with technology, including simple programming concepts, robotics, electronics, and games making. Above all else, the event is about providing children with a challenging yet supportive environment, enabling kids to taste the feeling of success that comes from solving problems.

The event is formed of a series of concurrent workshops that cover a range of topics. Children select their chosen workshop for each session and are mentored through age appropriate tasks, supported by mentors who are experienced in technology.

Registrations are now open. The workshops running for this event will include Scratch, Lego Mindstorm, Minecraft and NAO robot programming.

The environment is very open and friendly. There will be opportunity to show and tell, as well as many experienced folk from technology to assist with any ideas that kids may bring.

Questions?

Wondering what is required as a parent? want more information on how to sponsor or support us? keen to volunteer as a mentor? please refer to the section below or reach out to cesar.tronlozai@gmail.com

Sponsors

As Devoxx4Kids has no real funding of note, we only ask a token amount per child to ensure attendance. As it's costly to run an event of this nature, we are very grateful to have invaluable support from the following organisations who have funded aspects of the event.

This year General Assembly is hosting us and we are very grateful for their help. If you would like to start a new carreer in technology or strengthen your skills, have a look at their courses at https://generalassemb.ly

If you are interested in helping support Devoxx4Kids in any way, please get in touch with cesar.tronlozai@gmail.com

Attendees

Each child will be expected to bring a laptop (Windows or Mac) - the required software will be provided in advance and an IT support desk will be run before the event starts. All workshops have children working in pairs.

We are not expecting to provide lunch & refreshments this year, so please bring a packed lunch, drinks and snacks for the day. While there are shops nearby, entering & leaving the site is a time consuming process and so we would encourage people to expect to be onsite for the full duration of the event.

If you or your child would like to take part but have a disability or a condition which you feel might prevent you from attending, please reach out to us by email at cesar.tronlozai@gmail.com to discuss. The venue can be made wheelchair accessible with advance notice.

NOTE: Tickets are non-refundable but are transferable.

Parents

Devoxx4Kids is not day care and we do not assume any responsibility for attendees. As such, a parent / guardian is required for all children in attendance. There will be an area for adults (with tea and coffee making facilities) to stay and support for any who would like to better understand what the children are experiencing. We don't expect parents to be involved in the workshops, although if you are interested in helping out, please see the section on volunteering.

What is Devoxx?

Devoxx UK is a technology conference taking place in 10th - 11th May in London and, as the name suggests, takes it's ethos from enthusing developers who spend their working life in tech and applies it to providing an equally fun atmosphere for the next generation of potential engineers. Whilst not everyone will become anengineer, we believe that everyone can benefting from understanding what makes technology tick better.
