Create your own App / Earn vital experience working with IT professionals
The Hive Studios are teaming up with Kainos – a leading UK IT company to run a FREE Easter coding camp in the Hive Studios at Rath Mor. We are looking for 25 young people (taken on a first come - first served basis) to commit to a week long coding camp over the Easter week. By the end of the week, working with experts from the Hive and Kainos – every individual will have developed their own app (deployed on an Android device). Every student will rceive a certificate of participation, a live app submitted to the Google Play store under their name and a highly useful CV reference. From the 25 apps, the top 3 (as judged by Hive/Kainos) will also receive special prizes.
Schedule: The camp will run over the Easter week (i.e. 17–21 April) from Monday–Friday and will run daily from 9am–4pm (with 15 minute break at 11am and a 30 minute lunch at 1.00–1.30pm). Some basic snacks and refreshments will be provided, water, fruit, biscuits (but participants may want to bring a lunch or go to the cafe downstairs, under supervision). Participants must attend every day of the code camp (or they will miss out on key skills required to develop their app).
Participant criteria: We are looking for anyone interested in creative technology, computing, web/app development or interested in a potential career in IT. The timetable is demanding and only serious participants should apply. Age 14–16.
A parental / guardian consent form will need to be signed on the day.
