In the Know – Innovation, Imagination and Fun!
Learning nowadays can be so much fun for young people! They are able to navigate through complex subjects and problems, all whilst enjoying the experience of innovation and teamwork. This week we bring you three skill-building activities for young people to enjoy!
As part of the Winter Lights Festival at Canary Wharf, young people can put their coding skills to the test by participating in Code Green. They will take on the challenge of turning the world green by making environmental decisions in a collaborative coding game. This free, drop-in event will be on Saturday 26th January between 10am-10pm. To find out more, click here.
