If anyone on the course lives around the Rotherham/Sheffield area and is interested in games and STEM subjects, I am helping to organise a week long festival for school pupils which runs from 2-6 July at Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham.
We had a press event recently at which Andy Payne, OBE launched the event and spoke about the importance of involving young people in STEM subjects and the games industry. We also launched a competition for school pupils to design a game, game character and music (my husband and I wrote the teacher’s pack!)

If you are interested in coming or contributing, let me know and I’ll give you some details about the workshops, speakers etc.
