Attention Message

Technology Volunteers are a group of students and staff at the University of Warwick. We want to encourage children to become creators, rather than consumers of technology. Technology Volunteers offer support to local schools by assisting with technology-based projects and activities during lessons, or at after school clubs.

Volunteering Opportunities
Block 1 text

Technology Volunteers currently focus on two different workshops, Arduino and Scratch. Upon signing up to the project you will learn about Arduino and Scratch and help deliver workshops in local schools.

We are also involved in organising competitions which allow children to gain recognition for their progress in exciting, educational, and technology-related projects; each year we alternate between running our own Technology Volunteers competitions and supporting the BCS Coventry competitions. In our spare time, we look to create some great resources to help with workshops.
