A SUMMARY

Hello everyone! We're immensely excited to be back at the British Airways i360 on Brighton's seafront this October half term. Due to huge demand since the lockdown lifted we'll put on a day of our classic Introduction to Hacking with Minecraft and Python workshop on the Tuesday. You can book two-hour slots throughout Tuesday. On the Monday, we've something quite special for you - An Introduction to Data Science for Children. This is a brand-new workshop we're running in collaboration with the University of Sussex's DISCUS Data Intensive Science Centre. Data Science is critical to the artificial intelligence and machine learning work that we're all going to benefit from in the future. It's one of the essential skills we need to be teaching our children right now. Children aged older than 12 will manage this one. Take a look at our separate eequ page for this exciting new workshop.

About your Mentor

About your Mentor

Andrew

Hi - I'm Andrew, and I run Genius Brighton educational workshops. You might know us from our Venture Coders workshops. I'm a working scientist - a physicist - working in geophysics and data science. I've been running workshops like this, in and around Brighton, for children since around 2015. I also tutor maths, physics and coding privately. Our workshops are all about developing the skills our children will need in the future - it's not about creating a generation of computer scientists! We want to create a generation of children that have the skills to follow their passion wherever it takes them, without feeling restricted by a rigid education. That means having the confidence to learn new things, to solve problems, to not be afraid to dive into something new. This, more than anything else, is what you'can expect from our workshops.

Learning aims

You'll learn what hacking is all about, and how the hacking you hear about in the media is only a part of the story!

Strengths to develop

We're teaching you to have confidence in your own ability to solve problems that appear to be really complicated at first. You'll be amazed at what you can do, if you take it slowly, and break a problem down into small pieces!
