Digital start-up ‘Tech Resort’ teaches kids to code

Project aims to develop digital skills among 8-18 year olds in Eastbourne and the surrounding area


Start-up ‘Tech Resort’ has launched, a venture in Eastbourne which aims to develop digital talent among local young people and help teachers in the area prepare for the new computing curriculum due to be introduced in September.

The ‘community interest company’ has started running projects such as ‘Tech Resort Teens’, a fortnightly coding club designed to teach young people programming skills, as well as skills in user experience design, product management and service design.

Roughly 25 kids attend every meeting and the sessions are vastly over-subscribed, with a waiting list of those hoping to attend. Phil Burrowes of Avant Commercial captured some pictures from a recent session, and the team provided brief descriptions.
