Children’s Build a PC workshops return

By Ben Carey on 2 August, 2022

Wiltshire’s Black Nova has announced more dates for its popular children’s Build a PC workshops.

The workshops aim to inspire young people to learn about technology whilst also raising funds for mental health charity MIND. 

Aimed at children aged 10 to 16, the workshops will run between September and Christmas to coincide with the start of the new school year.

Black Nova’s previous workshops held earlier in the year were fully subscribed within hours of their launch. 

Founder Kyle Holmes said, “This is something I’ve always wanted to do as I was always fascinated by tech and gadgets growing up. Our first workshops were booked out very quickly and this has shown us that there is an appetite for this.”

Children attending the workshops will learn about the different components of a PC and how to build a working machine. All attendees will receive a certificate to show they have completed the workshop. 

Kyle, who started Black Nova with his wife Danielle Holmes, has been fascinated by technology since he was very young and is passionate about instilling that enthusiasm in future generations. 

He added, “I believe it’s vital to foster not only an enthusiasm in kids for tech but also a comprehensive understanding of it. We want to do whatever we can to help young people feel confident in their abilities to keep up with the changes and become part of the future of an IT-led world.

“I see these workshops as an opportunity to give something back. We really want to raise much-needed funds for MIND whilst also making the workshops accessible to everyone.”

The workshops will take place at Black Nova’s premises in Calne on Saturday 10th September, Saturday 8th October and Saturday 12th November. Parents are invited to stay for the duration of the workshop.
