RE:CODE London

11th June 2019, 8:00 am - 13th June 2019, 5:00 pm

LAUNCH OF RE:CODE LONDON Hundreds of young Londoners put their coding skills to the test today at the Imagination Lab, run by the Institute of Imagination, where they designed and coded a LEGO® prototype robot, which can help remove rubbish from the River Thames. The Deputy Mayor for Education and Childcare, Joanne McCartney, saw the young coders in action as she joined the LEGO Group and the Institute of Imagination to launch RE:CODE London, a new scheme which provides schoolchildren with a coding and robotics-based challenge to encourage them to think critically and problem solve around a real-world, London issue. Joanne McCartney also announced the Mayor’s raft of new schemes to inspire the next generation of young scientists, engineers and coders in London, including the launch of the Mayor’s London Scientist scheme.
