    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    There is a skills gap in the UK for STEM skills and technology skills. We're trying to encourage kids to engage in tech and to learn even the basic skills that are now required for the modern jobs market. We know that sitting in a classroom and copying out code and making things appear on screen can be quite dry so, we take the approach of tinkering a making to inspire the urge to learn about programming and electronics. We teach programming using a variety of devices from the Raspberry Pi to the BBC Microbit, using fun projects and things that kid can physically see working to help them feel that they are actually learning something.

    I would love to continue to run events, however, these events cost money to run due to the equipment involved and the transportation of volunteers and equipment. By raising money on here, we will be able to get enough equipment to teach more kids how to program in new and exciting ways, along with still offering our events for FREE.
