London South Bank University will be part of a Guinness World Record attempt for the largest number of people simultaneously learning to code an Android app – and is inviting the local community to take part.
The record attempt – run by BCSWomen - will be held on Saturday 13 June in a number of locations across the UK including LSBU's Southwark campus.
Professor Shushma Patel, School of Engineering's Director of Education and Student Experience at LSBU, said: "Individuals and families with children over the age of 10 are welcome to come and learn how to build apps using simple coding techniques.
"By the end of the day you will have an app that you run and install on your own Android phones or tablets.
"The School of Engineering at LSBU is proud to be associated with this challenge. As a civic University, it is important that we engage with not only our students, but also the wider community.
"We are not only trying to break the world record, but also inspiring the next generation of prospective students to engage in STEM subjects and learning to code."
