Summer Activities

There are a number of events happening in the North East over the summer holidays. You might be interested on these:

Young Founders

25 July – 5 August (16 – 18 year olds)

Young people in the North East have the opportunity of a lifetime this summer to kick-start their own business. Young Founders, an innovative free two-week programme for 16-18 year olds is taking place at Campus North in Newcastle for the first time.

Young Founders was established by 18-year-olds Ed Hardy and Kit Logan, who realised that there is a gap in support for entrepreneurial young people when they themselves decided to combine studies with developing their own start up. From their own experience and with the support of a team of mentors and partners, they have created a two-week programme that takes participants from early idea stage to a business that can be pitched to potential investors.

Working with mentors, experts and funders, young people will be able to gain knowledge, advice and first hand experience on the intensive programme.
Newcastle is the only place outside of London where Young Founders is taking place, giving an invaluable opportunity to local 16-18 year olds. The free two-week programme takes place 25 July – 5 August and it’s now open for applications.

Tech for Life Code Camp

15 – 19 August (14 – 18 year olds)

As part of a summer programme, we are running a 5-day programme for 14 – 18 year olds from 15 – 19 August. It will include an input session in the morning on various aspects of coding, each session building upon the previous day’s lesson. Attendees will then work in Campus North for the afternoon, on tasks set during the morning lesson.
Please complete the form to register your interest for the programme. We will be in touch by the end of June to confirm your place.
