Coding and signal project
To teach up to 32 Aberystwyth Sea Cadets aged 12 -18 signalling and coding to a high standard by a highly qualified I.T. instructor member of training staff. The project is a learning for life project, the subject being very important in today’s high tech community.
- The Community Award will allow the unit to increase the knowledge and capability of the cadets in the field of coding and signalling. Without the award it would not be possible.
- The Community Award would raise not only the self confidence but also the team spirit of the cadets which are the prime objectives of the Sea Cadet Corps, especially at this unit T S Cardigan Bay.
- The Community Award would achieve the objective of teaching the cadets the varied use of computers and computing as being not just for games and social media.
How we will achieve our goals
As the Sea Cadets are a charity they raise all their funding, but without a Community Award this new project would be impossible.
Where the money will go
By teaching the cadets both coding and signalling, by means of their own equipment, they will take their knowledge into school and the community, to the benefit of all concerned, especially by giving the learners confidence in their own capabilities and reducing the influence of the “gang” mentality pervading at the present time.
