Introducing Pupils to Computing

We're down but not out!

 IT4U will not be running on campus at Edinburgh Napier University this year. 

We have started to work on some online workshops and our first is now available.  We’ve also made a page that links to any web resources for coding and computing.

Try the buttons above.

These are our first online workshops and we would welcome any feedback on how you found the experience.  Use the Contact Us link. 



About Us


Our aim is to introduce S3 and S4 pupils to the exciting world of computing using half-day events where we deliver highly interactive workshops from a portfolio that includes topical technologies such as Mobile and Forensic Computing, Physical Computing, Web Technologies and Games Development. All workshops have been designed to be as hands-on and interactive as possible. This is a doing event – not a listening event.
