0Gravity prepares for lift off – Sunderland Software City
Young Minecraft masters and gifted gamers are being invited to join a newly-formed coding club, inspired by a group set up almost 5,000 miles away. Global software solutions company, Saggezza, based at the Sunderland Software Centre, is launching 0Gravity in the new year, a club that invites local 8 to 11 year olds to learn more about coding.
The club will be officially launched on January 20. It will provide youngsters the opportunity to build and expand the popular game, Minecraft, by using java and a system and course called Code Kingdoms. Jill McKinney, training and delivery manager at Sunderland Software City, said: “0Gravity presents an exciting opportunity for local children to be inspired, and to find out more about the kind of roles they might aspire to in the future.
“All the schools we have spoken to so far have been very receptive and we urge others to get in touch as there will be more clubs later in the year.” Click Here For Full Story
