The Duke Of York Bronze Award
5 Day Workshop Programme

A 5 day STEM themed workshop experience for young people aged 9 -16 years resulting in successful participants earning The Duke Of York Bronze Award.

iDEA is a digital and enterprise version of The Duke of Edinburgh Award in which participants complete a series of challenges to achieve an award at Bronze, Silver or Gold level. For every new skill and learning experience mastered, iDEA participants gain a digital badge worth a number of points. When sufficient points have been accumulated, participants are then awarded their Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of York Award.

The Duke of York Award programme is free for people of all ages to engage with online, and Tablet Academy have developed a complementary 5 day workshop experience in which young people aged 9-14 years can participate in a series of hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) themed activities.

By combining Tablet Academy's engaging teacher-led activities with the online badges, successful participants will be awarded their Duke of York Bronze Award by the end of the 5th day of workshops.
