introducing.exa.foundation


Every year, exa.foundation runs over 100 events, ranging from Computing training for teachers to family-focused hack jams, school lessons and our incredible #exabytes conference on edtech.

We run events across the entire UK, most of which we organise in response to a request - get in touch with exa.foundation if you're interested in having an event organised near you! We work to run events wherever requested when possible, though we do prioritise requests from Exa Education customers.

The majority of our events are completely free to attend, or are set up so that teachers can fully claim back the cost of attending.

There's almost always something happening at exa.foundation, so we've put together this page to give you a look at everything coming up over the next few months - check out the calendar below for a look at every upcoming event - click any event for a more in-depth look and a link to the event page itself.
