This relates directly to courses on offer at SETU, such as Computer Science, Software Systems Development, Computer Forensics and Security, Creative Computing and Information Technology. This event will give the participants a tour of the computing facilities, where they will be given an 'Hour of Code' workshop, as well as other talks and demonstrations.
