A rare day of sunshine graced the KC Stadium in Hull for TeenTech Humber 2012 where the atmosphere inside was buzzing from the word “go” for this, our second visit to the region. Such was the enthusiasm from the young people that the Ideas Wall was covered even before the day had properly started and we had to find extra wall space in a hurry…

Thanks to everyone who managed to do the impossible and make this year’s event even better than last year!

BAFTA joined us to run an lively Innovation Zone activity to design a computer game. And so  impressed were Platform Expos by character ideas dreamed up by our schools that 15 of these will be worked up into online characters, with the schools retaining the IP and rights for their work.


The dress code was … interesting  😉
