Description

Join us at the first ever Great Manchester College Hack!

Anyone aged 16 to 18, at college or sixth form in Greater Manchester, who's into digital making and coding (or wanting to learn how) is welcome to join us for two days of fun, challenges, teamwork and learning.

This is a chance to engage in friendly competition with other colleges - and win prizes set by top local tech companies.

The challenges will involve making a digital solution to solve a problem, or respond to an idea.

As usual we'll have our excellent mentors to help you learn how it's done in the industry - and make useful contacts.

You can come in a team of up to 4, or come on your own and we'll help you join a team.

We look forward to seeing you there.

By registering you give us permission to take and publish images and video of you - just let us know if you're not up for that.

Headline Sponsor: CDL

Challenges now in! Here's a preview of each one so you can start thinking and discussing. Full challenge details will be given on the day:

CDL Challenge: Create a classic game (we'll say which) using a theme of your choice - then respond to an unexpected event.

Autotrader Challenge: Create a game that encourages people from all backgrounds (including less advantaged, more isolated, less represented) to become more interested in the world of technology.

CyberFirst Challenge: We would like you to produce a program that helps newcomers navigate their way around your school or college. You can use any platform you like.
