There is an exciting event (lets face it everything is exciting to me) taking place at Madlab next month for anyone who is interested in working with Yong People to give them the digital skills and creativity they are going to need. Advisors will be there to tell us how we can apply for the Digital Makers Fund.
From robots to Raspberry Pi, hackdays to summers of code, more and more young people are creating with technology. But how can we inspire, involve and support a generation of digital makers?
FutureEverything is nearly upon us and it gets better and better every year, so below is some news and highlights of the programme. Remember one day all festivals will be made this way.
