An event to celebrate the achievement of Northamptonshire school students, who took part in the Race to the Top Coding Competition, was held on the 12th February 2016 at the University of Northampton. The competition organised by Northamptonshire County Council, The Worshipful Company of Information Technolgists (WCIT, a City of London Livery Company), Code Club and the University of Northampton, with further sponsors and judges from industry to encourage increased and improved engagement with computer coding.
Well done all the students who took part. Team Sparky from Park Junior School in Wellingborough were the winners in the Primary School group. [Syntax Error] from Kettering Buccleuch Academy were the winners in the Secondary group.
