In 2014 I created the HSBC Scotland Schools programme to help support schools with their IT and Coding curriculum. We used Kanban as a way to help students visualise and understand the development lifecycle and the roles within it. This session is a look at how we tried to create this schools programme, the challenges we faced coming from industry into schools, dealing with unwilling (and often hormonal!!) teenagers but also some of the successes we had particularly with primary school students. We have now worked with over 1100 primary and high school students across Scotland since December and we will look to build on that success and expand the programme for the next school term.
