Join us to help plan for the Young Rewired State Festival of Code 2013.

YRS is a weeklong event (August 5-11) for young people under 18 to get together and make stuff out of public data.  It involves coding, programming, designing and a load of fun.  More details on the YRS website… 

2013 will be our fourth year as a host centre for YRS at MadLab.   We’re proud to have been associated with YRS since its inception, and really look forward to another amazing week in August.  We’re also keen to support other venues locally – and to pass on our knowledge and experience.

Who is this event for?

This event is aimed at those planning to be involved in making YRS happen this year.  You could be:

- A volunteer mentor wanting to help YRS participants

- A centre organiser wanting to host YRS 

- A local business/agency/organisation wanting to support YRS through sponsorship, kit, people or food!

- An educator wanting to support young people taking part in YRS

Attending this event will be some of the mentors from the previous years, and the centre leads for the Manchester-based YRS venues. So this is an ideal opportunity to find out more from those that have done this before. 

NB: This particular event is not aimed at young people or parents/carers.  We will organise something around this later in the year.
