Our aim is to encourage programming in kids (EPIK), this in a fun way using Minecraft and other tools, groups and getting them to meet the experts.

We are a parent and youth centric group of people who come together to help both ourselves and our kids better understand this tech world we find ourselves in, finding creative ways to learn not just the technical skills needed but the social ones too :)

in 2015 we are focusing on our teens to get them to experience and meet the industry by hosting events at technical conferences where they get to meet the experts, ask questions and in some cases offered summer volunteering and internship opportunities to help them make an informed choice pre degree or apprenticeship path.

This group is the Kent branch and HQ of EPIK, we encourage programming in kids in a fun way using Minecraft and other tools, groups and get them to meet the makers in our IT industry

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
