Prewired: An Edinburgh programming club for under 19s @ CodeBase

Prewired: An Edinburgh programming club for under 19s @ CodeBase | Scotland | United Kingdom

Computers let you create anything you can think of. Prewired is here to help enthusiastic young coders of any ability to do just that.

Wednesday evenings are for you to play around with whatever technologies and programming languages you want.  You can learn something brand new, practice something you already know, start a project, get help with something you’re stuck on, or even teach others.

Last year we’ve had people working on basic Python, Python games, websites (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), Java, Scratch and Arduinos.

If there are different topics, languages or technologies you want to cover, just let us know!

Please sign up for as many sessions as you can.  Coming regularly makes it easier to make friends and do as much coding as possible 🙂

Resources

Please bring your own laptops if you can, as you’ll be able to get to work a lot faster on a system you’re familiar with. We do have spares, but bring one if you can.

There will be some very light refreshments, but not much, so make sure you’ve had your dinner or a snack before you come if you usually eat around this time.

Location

The entrance to CodeBase is on 38 Castle Street – come in to reception and go straight into the hot desking space. You sign in at the Prewired registration desk.

Parents

Parents are welcome to accompany their children, we have a sofa or two that you can occupy (for example if your child is young). However participants under the age of 11 must be accompanied. If you do come along, please feel free to bring your own laptop and get stuck in with one of the coding sessions if this interests you! We can alsways help you if you want to get started exploring coding yourself.

Getting involved if you’re over 19 and not a parent..

If you’re interested in mentoring, sponsoring, helping to organise or otherwise get involved, please email hello [at] prewired.org and we can arrange for you to attend one of our sessions and see how it works.

Cancellations

If you sign up but realise you can’t make it, or if you accidentally book extra spaces for any reason, please make sure to cancel your ticket so the place can be released to someone else!

Brian Catling: The Erstwhile @ Blackwell's Bookshop Edinburgh
Mar 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Brian Catling: The Erstwhile @ Blackwell's Bookshop Edinburgh | Scotland | United Kingdom

Blackwell’s Bookshop is extremely excited to welcome Brian Catling, who will be in store to chat about his forthcoming book The Erstwhile, the second in The Vorrh series.

Brian will be in conversation with literary critic and fellow writer Stuart Kelly.

About the Book

In London and Germany, strange beings are reanimating themselves. They are the Erstwhile, the angels that failed to protect the Tree of Knowledge, and their reawakening will have major consequences.

In Africa, the colonial town of Essenwald has fallen into disarray because the timber workforce has disappeared into the Vorrh. Now a team of specialists are dispatched to find them. Led by Ishmael, the former cyclops, they enter the forest, but the Vorrh will not give them back so easily.

To make matters worse, an ancient guardian of the forest has plans for Ishmael and his crew. Meanwhile a child of mixed race has been found abandoned in a remote cottage. Her origins are unknown, but she has powers beyond her own understanding. Conflict is coming, as the old and new, human and inhuman are set on a collision course.

Once again blending the real and the imagined, The Erstwhile brings historical figures such as William Blake and places such as the Bedlam Asylum, as well as ingenious creations such as The Kin (a family of robots) together to create unforgettable novel of births and burials, excavations and disappearances.

About the Author

Brian Catling RA is an English sculptor, poet, novelist, film maker and performance artist. He was educated at North East London Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art. He now holds the post of Professor of Fine Art at The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford and is a fellow of Linacre College.He has been exhibiting his work internationally since the 1970s. In 2001 he co founded the international performance collective WitW. He has published poetic works, including one compendium, A Court of Miracles, in 2009. His first prose book Bobby Awl was published in 2007. Currently he is writing novels and has just completed The Vorrh trilogy.

Mending myelin: orchestrating brain repair in MS @ Wellcome Auditorium
Apr 30 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Mending myelin: orchestrating brain repair in MS @ Wellcome Auditorium

In multiple sclerosis there is damage to the myelin sheaths of nerves (demyelination) which reduces the ability of nerves to conduct electricity and makes them prone to degeneration.

The brain can regenerate the myelin sheath (remyelination) which restores electrical conduction and protects the nerves. However, in people with multiple sclerosis, this repair system fails and we do not understand why.

In her inaugural lecture, Professor Anna Williams will discuss how studying human multiple sclerosis brain tissue and laboratory models of remyelination can increase our understanding of how this repair process works and why it fails. Understanding this better may lead to new therapies to improve remyelination and reduce disability in multiple sclerosis.
