On the day…

EMERGENCY CONTACT ON THE DAY: 020 3432 3451

This is re-directed to Emily’s mobile, then if unanswered, to Jason’s (both will be onsite). Please only use this number in an emergency.

  • 9 – 9.45am: Registration
  • 10am – 4pm: Bootcamp

A more detailed timetable will be available on the website before your bootcamp.

Please register for the day between 9 and 9.45am in the venue foyer. FF staff and the AWS ambassadors will be there to greet you, help you register and show to you to the space.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. However feel free to bring snacks as it will be a jammed packed day, so lots of energy will be needed!

Please ensure you alert us to any dietary requirements you and your students have on your registration form. For food allergies i.e. nuts we advise bringing packed lunches.

FIRST AID:

All our security guards are first aid trained and responsible on the day.

First aid (medical incident and emergency) details are on display in all copy points. All incidents should be reported to Security, who are also first aid trained.

PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE:

Amazon evidences it’s insurance cover to third parties using a memorandum of insurance (MOI) rather than having physical certificates.  It is the new industry standard for large organisations to evidence insurance. The MOI is available here.

What to bring…

  • The students will be given an AWS Get IT T-shirt, so they should perhaps wear a long sleeved top suitable to wear the T-shirt over
  • A water bottle – there will be fill up stations at AWS
  • Any snacks to keep them going!
  • Writing pens and colouring pens
  • Project packs and any scrapbook
  • Other material built so far
  • Thinking hats, open minds and big ideas!

From the competition side – everything you need to have done and completed by the bootcamp is in the Challenge Pack.

I along with my colleagues from Amazon Web Services want to visit your school, meet your students and inspire and educate them about their future career pathways. We are passionate about filling the digital skills gap in the UK and improving communication and education around diversity within the technology industry.
