David Nutting has worked with computers for many years using a wide range of hardware and software and sees the current explosion in variety of computing devices, which are becoming all pervasive, as a great opportunity for anyone to acquire the relevant skills. Computing is highly creative. It’s about getting something to do what you want it to do. Making it behave how you want, often doing things that no–one else has done before. David’s enthusiasm for learning about computers is infectious and he now runs regular activities for pupils of various ages in eight different schools aiming to arouse their curiosity, show them that computing is accessible and get them started on what could be a long and enjoyable path.
This workshop is strictly for 16–18 year–olds and is aimed at those with little or no experience of computer programming. Students will be using freely available programs throughout the workshop. The workshop will include a 45 minute supervised lunch break.
Students should bring lunch and a drink, as well as a USB drive if they wish to take their work home. They should also bring pens and pencils.
