Its now three years in a row for TeenTech at the KC stadium and it’s always a delight to work alongside the Humberside team with such keen and enthusiastic students. It’s not only the students who walk away enthused – companies were impressed by the level of skill many students brought to the competitions and challenges including designing new characters for games. (The rights to the characters remain with the students – after all they may have come up with the next Lara Croft)
