WHAT WE DO
Get with the Program is a social enterprise designed to bring schools and businesses together so children can learn about the amazing potential of technology.
With help from our business sponsors, we develop exciting tech learning events, aligned to the school curriculum. Our unique workshops capture the students’ imaginations, teaching coding concepts through interactive theatre.
“ALL OF OUR CHILDREN WERE HUGELY INSPIRED BY THE FUN, SPACE-THEMED PROGRAMMING WORKSHOP - EVEN THOSE WHO AREN’T USUALLY INTERESTED IN COMPUTING.
IT’S FAIR TO SAY GREAT FUN WAS HAD BY ALL, CHILDREN AS WELL AS TEACHERS"
Head Teacher, Buryfields Infant School, Odiham, Hampshire
Whether based on a moon landing in peril or a robot constructing a healthy lunch box, we'll provide a framework for the development of a successful event for all levels of primary education.
You can choose from our existing workshops or help us create something new to fit your school themes - all tailored to suit the needs and abilities of the group involved.
We supply follow-up resources and activities to help embed the primary computing curriculum and make it fun for children and teachers alike.
Secondary schools are where a student's interest in digital technologies can be fostered and encouraged. Reports say computing at secondary level is in sharp decline. We aim to bring the computing curriculum to life with events aiming to be fun, engaging and experiential, putting emphasis on the importance of creative problem solving and complex reasoning.
The computing curriculum is vital in enabling the students of today for the workplace of tomorrow, with digital technologies set to transform all industries in the coming years. Computational thinking provides a fantastic basis for teaching complex reasoning, creative problem solving, experimentation and resilience - skills which are also applicable beyond IT.
