KYOCERA Document Solutions has extended its partnership with Fujitsu and launched KYOCodes, a new educational competition to find the app developers of tomorrow.
The coding challenge is open to all education establishments in the Fujitsu Education Ambassador Programme, strengthening KYOCERA’s commitment to this programme and addressing an ongoing need to embrace computer sciences and digital literacy at an early age.
Tracey Rawling-Church at KYOCERA Document Solutions UK said: “We’re proud to support the Fujitsu Education Ambassador Programme to transform the lives of children and young adults across the UK who might not otherwise have the opportunity. We hope that the KYOCodes initiative inspires these pupils to try their hand at developing an app, and shows just how achievable a career path this can be.”
All of the Fujitsu Education Ambassador sites will be invited to take part in a 10 week coding challenge, where they’ll be asked to design a brand new app for KYOCERA’s suite of application software, powered by HyPAS. The winning team will be the one that designs the app which best meets a real business need and challenge.
