Mission to Mars: ByteSize – Penzance

Monday 06 08 2018 @ 9:30 AM - Tuesday 07 08 2018 @ 4:00 PM

Mission to Mars: Bytesize is set to speed up Software Cornwall’s Mission to Mars program this summer at Truro and Penwith College, Penzance.

Over two days, teams of budding software engineers age will be challenged to prepare our Rover Robots for life on Martian soil. Using the starter files developed collaboratively by the community during our professionals day, participants will get hands-on with the robots whilst they code solutions to complete the maneuverability tests. We’ll be using:

  • C++
  • Arduino Mini
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Agile Project Management
  • Git version control

These sessions are suitable for anyone aged 14 to 24 who wants to explore a career in the broader software industry with more seasoned developers encouraged to volunteer. If you want to work in games creation, app development, robotics or artificial intelligence, this is the perfect session for you. Our friendly team of mentors will help coach participants through the challenges, supported by the counties burgeoning tech community.
