Prewired: An Edinburgh programming club for under 19s @ CodeBase
Jan 11 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
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!

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.

Human Library – Challenge your prejudices by Helen Harvey

The Human Library is where people become books. Visitors to the library will sit down with living ‘books’ for intimate and challenging conversations. Through fascinating stories with local people from all walks of life the reader will re-think prejudices and assumptions. The Human Library® is a global innovative and learning platform. We are embedded in high school to higher learning, medical training to civic engagement to better our understanding of diversity in order to help create more inclusive and cohesive communities across cultural, religious, social and ethnic differences.

As usual, everyone is invited to bring an item of food along to put on the table and help take away what is left at the end.  During the break there is a chance to have a bite to eat, fill the glass and have a chat

DADA and the Drum Kit by Aiden Pilling

A DADA approach to any artistic concept or cultural idea is to be free from the constraints of conformity and be daring to explore that which is random by nature for the benefit of creativity. I believe that it is through this exploration of the abstract that – in the context of music – we can develop new ideas, and so I intend to present, play and philosophize using my formula for learning and playing the drum kit. I do hope that this discussion can inspire those with mental blocks that obstruct the pathway to novel thought.
