About Code Club:

The Isle of Man Code Club is an organisation aimed at providing a focal point for people of all ages to develop digital skills, share their knowledge and experience and teach others how to leverage the technology that surrounds us. We do this by organising classes in various programming disciplines, fostering cooperation amongst software developers in the Isle of Man and providing events of interest for people passionate about technology.

Short plan to share: Have you coded before? Would you like to learn how to code? Code Club is going to be here with both beginner and intermediate handouts so you can have a go at creating your own computer programs in just 30 minutes.

About Young Engineers:

Young Engineers offer revolutionary educational programs which provide an engaging, hands-on learning experience that teach children the fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering, Programming and Robotics. In each lesson, they discuss and explain theories that are related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).  Students comprehend these complex theories through building our exclusive and exciting machines and robots. They offer various STEM Workshops for Primary Schools, as well as after-school Enrichments Programs, which run throughout the entire academic year, on various days and at multiple locations around The Isle of Man.
In their programs, participants will learn about many different topics and concepts which include the laws of physics, centrifugal force, centripetal force, inertia, kinetic energy, potential energy, lift force, torque, leverage points, angular momentum and more! Students are also equipped with the professional skills necessary for understanding the logic behind almost any coding language that exists today, along with the necessary mathematical skills required in making the scientific calculations needed to build their models.
UNESCO Biosphere – what to expect:
How technology helps wildlife.
“Technology can help us monitor wildlife, we can use camera traps, mammal traps, drones. electro fishing and audio recordings to name a few. Come and look at what we use to help us discover more about our wildlife. See how this is used for conservation.
Our activity table at Love Tech’s Summer Open Day will include camera trap and reviewing videos it has recorded. Can you count which creatures you can see from recordings of bats and can you detect which species are present? Can you identify the footprints left in mammal traps?
Come along to challenge your observation skills. Knowing what wildlife we have means we can protect our Biosphere.” Dawn Colley, UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man.
