I received some more questions today about Hack To The Future, so today, in front of a class I recorded a short presentation about it. The children at our school have not experienced anything quite like this before, so they have been asking me lots of questions. This video was recorded on my phone by a 13 yr old pupil – sorry if the quality is not too great.
Just yesterday, I released the first batch of tickets to children on this site here. For a number of reasons, I have had to create a separate event page for the children to sign up on. If you would like to bring some 11 – 18 year olds to this event, please sign up now. Although the event is described as North West – everyone from around the UK is welcome to attend. If you are interested in speaking or volunteering, please sign up on a separate site here.
One thing I am particulary keen to promote is the role of girls in computing. It can be a struggle to persuade girls 12+ that this is something they should be looking at. In the last couple of days I recorded interviews with two groups of girls and got different responses.I will continue some more of these – if you have questions you would like me to ask, let me know.
