Edublocks, developed by All About Code, has been shortlisted for the BT Young Pioneer Award.

Think you can’t code? Think again. Thirteen-year-old Joshua Lowe is passionate about programming and he says his project could get everyone coding, “especially those who think they can’t.” He’s been busy creating projects that help other people understand how important it is to use technology in their lives.

He’s really busy running workshops and teaching Python using EduBlocks all over the UK, including MAKE STUFF events in Greater Manchester. Young people, who have never even touched Rasberry Pi or done and coding before, have been taught how to program in Python. They leave workshops having created cool stuff with LED’s, buzzers and Minecraft.
