Innovation technology company Bitlink is inspiring the next generation of computer whizzes with its term courses that teach basic IT skills. 

This term they will run two programs, a build-your-own pocket monsters game, along the lines of Pokemon Go, the other a Minecraft course teaching the core concepts of computer circuitry. 

It’s a really good way to visualise it for kids and get them sort of interested in the computer logic advanced mechanics side,” Bitlink educational designer Nathaniel Bott said. 

Mr Bott said last term there was a great mix of genders interested in the course, something he was delighted to see. 

“We’ve got a wide range of kids from different backgrounds that get really interested,” he said.

Classes start on Tuesday and Thursday and go for two hours over five weeks. For more information or to register visit Bitlink’s website
