Version 5



    In April, we challenged our members to tell us about summer code club initiatives in their local communities. Whether through assisting in the setup of a brand new code club or working with an established group, our goal was to empower our members to pass on their coding and electrical engineering skills to the next generation.

    After evaluating a fantastic collection of applications, we announced the ten chosen members. These STEM champions hailed from all over the world, volunteering their time and resources to ensure that all children have the tools to thrive in modern world. Each finalist received a micro:bit Club Packmicro:bit Club Pack and a batch of Kitronik Inventors KitsKitronik Inventors Kits -  the latter kindly donated by our colleagues at Kitronik.
